My son’s pre-school Halloween party is coming up next week and I’m excited about making a creepy dessert for his classmates.  Oliver (my little taste tester) has been sampling my Halloween treats all month.  His verdict is…everything has been “too spooky”.  As much as I love making little kids squeel and run away, Oliver has advised me to keep it cute.  I think these Vanilla Mummy Madeleines fit the bill.  They’re so adorable they surely won’t scare the kiddos away.  Not like these devils.  Or these guys.

Chocolate Tarantula Cupcakes

Chocolate Tarantula Cupcakes with Ferrero rocher chocolate spiders - www.yummycrumble.comSpooky Chocolate Tarantula Cupcakes that are perfect for Halloween!  Super dark chocolate cupcakes topped with vibrant purple vanilla buttercream and topped with the most adorable chocolate spiders!

Chocolate Tarantula Cupcakes with Ferrero rocher chocolate spiders - www.yummycrumble.com Last week I posted a super easy and adorable tutorial for these Ferrero Rocher Chocolate Spiders.  I made my favorite chocolate cupcakes and topped them with the hairy coconut chocolate spiders.  My son Oliver, who has inherited my really crazy, borderline ridiculous obsession for chocolate, still would not go near these guys.  I guess no matter how delicious something is, if it has eight legs you squeal and run away.  And that’s exactly what my four year old did.  I just shrugged and ate his cupcake.

Monster Strawberry Cupcakes with vanilla buttercream and crushed oreo cookies - Yummy CrumbleMy kids are pretty young so we only have one Halloween season under our belt.  We waited until Oliver was older before we ventured out to ask our neighbors for sugary delights.  Last year we took him Trick Or Treating for the first time. He was a three year old Ollie-wan Kenobi and the little guy had the best time.  On the way home he bit straight through a tootsie roll wrapper because his anxious little fingers couldn’t unwrap it in time.  He’s just like his Mamma.
