Preheat the oven to 350 degrees and line (2) 12 count muffin tins with cupcake liners.

Prepare the cupcake batter according to package directions.

Bake the cupcakes for 18-20 minutes. Around 18 minutes insert a toothpick into a cupcake and if it comes out clean they are done.

Remove the cupcakes from the oven and let cool completely.

Once the cupcakes are cool, spread a little bit of frosting on the bottom of a marshmallow and place on top of the cupcake. Repeat this step with all the cupcakes.

Once the cupcakes have cooled down sufficiently, it will be safe to add the eyes and complete the finishing touches. Store and in a cool baking tin or cupcake holder with a lid, as to stop little fingers from spoiling your hard work.

Finishing Touches

Scoop the vanilla frosting into a microwave safe glass dish and heat for about 10 seconds. Remove from the microwave and stir.

Spoon 1-2 tablespoons of the melted vanilla frosting over the top of each marshmallow sitting on top of the cupcakes. Let is cover all sides. Repeat with all the cupcakes.

Let the cupcakes set a few minutes and then use the black icing to give each ghost (2) eyes and a mouth.

  1. These are fabulous and don’t look too difficult to make. I know it says they’re for adults, but I think my little ones would love these too. I’m definitely going to try them out xx

  2. Halloween!! My little boy has been talking about Halloween since just after xmas, he loves it. He would actually love these too. They remind me of my Mallow Fluff Ghoul cupcakes I tried to make and drastically failed a few years back. the fluff just melted, the evidence is on my insta feed haha!

  3. I love these cupcakes, they look amazing. They’re perfect for Halloween parties. I’m not sure how many would make it to the party in my house though as hubby and son both love marshmallows!
