Kitty Cupcakes

If you want a simple dessert your kids can brew up for Halloween, these kitty cat cupcakes are pretty cute. You can use a box mix, or make the cupcakes from scratch (kitty reference). A recipe for cupcakes follows. Then, just top with chocolate frosting, and use a couple of dollops of frosting to form the ears. I just used chocolate frosting as is, (recipe follows), but you could add some black food coloring, if you like. Use little candies for eyes and a nose and cut out fruit roll-ups for a tongue and whiskers. You can also cut out little triangles of fruit roll ups for the ears. Super easy- and not too scary for the little ones.

Combine flour and baking powder, add to the creamed mixture and mix well. Finally stir in the milk until batter is smooth. Pour or spoon batter into the prepared pan. Bake 20 to 25 minutes. Cupcakes are done when they springs back to the touch. Makes12.
