Spooky Zombie Cupcakes

Pin It Now!
Shhhh.... listen carefully. Can you hear someone is calling "pleeeeease, pull me out"? Well, I can't hear that. All I can hear is "eat me, eat me".

This post is not about chocolate cupcakes (ok, I admit, these cupcakes came from a bakery), it's about how to create spooky chocolate hands. It's Easy! No special equipment or experience required. It's my first time working with candy melts (chocolate), and I found it's pretty easy. Give it a try! You will feel the same way.

- I used 1/4 bag of Candy melts. Ps, you can buy candy melts at Michael's, bakery supply shop, online or even Wal-Mart (not too many colors to choose there though).



- Microwave the candy at half power for 1 minutes

- Stir until smooth.
By the time you are done stirring, the candy is not hot anymore!
- Pull the melted candy melts in a sandwich bag. I'm sure decorating bag would work even better, but i didn't have any.



- Draw on wax paper

- Don't try to make it nice and smooth because it's impossible! (or maybe because I don't know how) The lumpy hands look spookier anyway!




- Remove the hands from the wax paper carefully when they are all set. (less than half an hour).
Don't worry, they are not that easy to break! I made more than 20 hands, and I didn't break anything. Not even a single finger.



- Use them to decorate cupcakes or chocolate brownies.

  12. I LOVE how easy it is to make these arms and hands. They don't have to be just for creepy cupcakes. They could be "applause" or "high fives" cupcakes for a congratulations treat. I'll definitely keep this fun idea in mind. Thanks!
