Come Party With Me: Halloween Bash — Menu (Sweet)

No Halloween party can be declared a success without an excessive amount of candy. I'll be strategically placing bowls filled with my favorite candies — Reese's Pieces, Nerds, and peanut M&Ms — around the two rooms that will house the party. The cupcake tier my sister gave to me for my birthday will make its debut at the party, since I'll be baking one batch of Halloween cupcakes to fill the stand. A few lucky guests can indulge in these homemade treats. For the recipe,

Another great Halloween cupcake option is Sprinkles Pumpkin Cupcake mix... They are so delicious it's criminal. I made them last week and replaced the signature Sprinkles "modern dot" decoration with a mellowcreme pumpkin to mark the occasion.
