Graveyard Cupcakes
 
Ingredients
  • 1 batch chocolate cupcakes (I used this recipe)
  • 1 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips
  • ½ cup heavy cream
  • 8 Oreos, cream removed from the center
  • 12 Milano cookies
  • Black frosting pen
  • White bone sprinkles (optional)
Instructions
  1. To make the ganache, combine the chocolate chips and heavy cream in a heat-proof bowl set above a pot of barely simmering water. Allow the chocolate chips to melt completely, stirring occasionally throughout the process. Do not let the chocolate burn. Once melted and smooth, remove from the heat and allow to cool for 2-3 minutes.
  2. Place Oreos in a sealed plastic bag. Crush the Oreos using a rolling pin until finely ground. Pour the crushed Oreos into a small bowl.
  3. One at a time, dip the cupcakes into the chocolate ganache and allow the excess to drip off. Then dip each cupcake into the bowl of crushed Oreos. Make sure to evenly coat with the Oreo mixture.
  4. Cut off the bottom of each Milano cookie to form a straight edge. Using the black frosting pen, write "RIP" on each cookie. Place a cookie onto each cupcake and press down slightly. Stick bone sprinkles into the Oreo mixture if desired.
