So simple, I’m embarrassed to call it a recipe! Dead easy to make for trick or treaters or for your own little monsters.

Ingredients (serves 3)

  • 1 packet store bought cupcakes
  • 1 small packet of pretzels
  • 1 small packet of smarties


  1. Break pretzels in half and push them into the sides of the cupcakes. Do 4 per side.
  2. Push two matching smarties into the front of the cupcakes for eyes.
  3. Done, voila!


You can always make these cupcakes from scratch to minimise the sugar in these spider cupcakes, but if you're pushed for time - most large supermarkets have pre-made cupcakes.

  • Doesn’t matter if they’re store bought!
    So good if you don’t have the time.
    Thank you for sharing! Definitely great for mums who are super busy and can’t get to baking.
