“I make dozens of these each Halloween. They are so cute! My kids expect to be able to take them to school even when I am not the Halloween party mom! I also take some to work and the people who dress up in costumes get one as a prize - they come looking for me to show me their costumes!” - by WHEATFIELDS
Original recipe yields 2 dozen
- Prepare the cake mix according to package directions for cupcakes. Cool. Frost cupcakes with chocolate frosting.
- Break the cookies in half, and press two halves into the top of each cupcake for wings, stripes facing the frosting. Place a chocolate kiss in front of the cookies with the point facing forward for the body. Make two beady little eyes with the red gel icing towards the point of the kiss. Let the fun begin!

"Hi folks, I'm sorry you are having such a hard time with these cupcakes. Maybe this will help. I frost the cupcakes and you can use actually any color or flavor but I usually use chocolate. I eithe..." See morer break the cookies in half or cut them in half. The solid chocolate side of the cookie is facing towards the front of the cupcake. I insert one 'point' of the cookie into the cupcake with the wing curve curving out )( to the edges of the cupcake. If the cupcake is big enough I make them meet in the middle, if they haven't risen well, I will overlap them slightly. I put 2 'wings' on the cupcake about 3/4 the way in from the front to the back leaving 1/4 of the cupcake behind the cookies. Then I put an unwrapped chocolate kiss with the flat bottom up against the cookie wings. I give it a little shove to help it set - this leaves the point of the kiss facing front. All you have left is to put 2 dots of red icing on either side of the pointy nose and they are done. I will continue to try to upload a picture. I have been having some difficulty with that. I hope this helps. Wheatfields"
"HELPFUL TIPS NOT MENTIONED: I thought I'd mention the problems I've had the first time around, so they can turn out perfect for you :) Like, use a sharp knife in a sawing motion along the whole width..." See more of cookie while cutting. Go SLOWLY! That way you don't run out or waste any cookies because they weren't cut down the middle correctly! Make sure you don't get the generic brand cookies either b/c they don't have a hole in the middle making the shape you need! Also, it helps to have the hersheys unwrapped and cookies cut for the 24 cupcakes (or however many - that's just the amount a normal cake batter makes). That way you can do them all at once, which means less handling (messing up your wings), and you can stick in the fridge! I also like sticking the wings INTO the cupcake and straight up, followed by the hershey kiss in front of it so the kiss doesn't rise up (tips tends to rise up if you angle it at all instead of putting them flat)! Everyone at my husband's office loved them and thought I was sooo creative. hehehehe Such a great idea that doesn't take too much work. Made these along with the spider cupcakes on this site!"
