Butterfinger Frankenstein Cupcakes

Prep Time 1 hour
Total Time 1 hour

Turn your Butterfinger Frosted Cupcakes into a fun Halloween treat with these Frankenstein toppers!


  1. Prepare Cupcakes with frosting according to recipe.
  2. Melt white chocolate according to package directions. Reserve about 3 Tbsp for mouths (I put this in a little decorator bottle or use a small sandwich bag with tip snipped off).
  3. Add one drop of green GEL food coloring and stir smooth. Dip ⅔ of the candy bar into the melted green chocolate and place on a piece of parchment paper. Immediately press in the eyes. Repeat until all candy bars have been dipped.
  4. Using the reserved white chocolate, drizzle on some spooky mouths! Add Frankenstein candies to the tops of the cupcakes. ENJOY!


  • See video for detailed instructions.
  • Start with a good chocolate cupcake. This chocolate cupcake recipe I used but I enjoy this one too. You can also use a boxed mix if that makes it easier on you!
  • To make the mouths, transfer the reserved melted chocolate to a little decorator bottle or use a small sandwich bag with tip snipped off for easy drizzling.
  • Use GEL food coloring (not liquid). It will prevent your chocolate from seizing, and give perfect color with minimal amount of gel. My favorite is this Americolor food coloring and I only used ONE drop for about 1 ½ cups of melted white chocolate.
  • Have everything ready for assembly before you get started. Place a piece of parchment paper on your counter, and have your candy eyes ready in a bowl. Less stress and less mess!
