These Chocolate Mummy Cupcakes are dressed up for Halloween! An easy technique helps you create a festive dessert for the holiday!
Chocolate Mummy Cupcakes
There are SO many creative Halloween recipes. These yummy mummy cupcakes are super easy. You can even use a box chocolate cake mix to streamline the process even more.
I toyed with piping frosting stripes to make the mummy wrappings, but decided that fondant would be even simpler to decorate each mummy cupcake. Fondant isn’t as tasty as frosting, but I love the way it looks.
I’m all about a low stress decorating technique. If you’re making these for those with discriminating palates, feel free to use my homemade cupcake recipe listed below and pipe or drizzle vanilla buttercream for the mummification process.
Easy Halloween Cupcake Recipe
My Halloween memories are filled with bags of candy, trick or treating with my best friends as well as birthday festivities. My birthday is actually the day before Halloween, but since I grew up in a small college town, our trick or treating schedule was adjusted.
Some wise soul thought that having both wild college students and young children on the streets on All Hallows Eve might not be prudent. We went house to house on the 30th instead of the 31st.
So my birthday ended with eating Tootsie Rolls, Milk Duds, and Milky Way Bars. Not too shabby. I don’t recall my mother making any special treats for Halloween but she, as the artist in the family, could have made some amazing Halloween cupcakes, maybe even Halloween mummy cupcakes. I recommend these easy yummy mummy cupcakes if you want to make a special holiday treat for your kids!
The Halloween Project!

So I will add links and photos of all their amazing holiday recipes as they are posted next week. For now I’ve linked a few from the past for inspiration. And, of course, if you’re looking for an easy peasy idea, keep these mummy Halloween cupcakes in the back of your mind!
