PEEPS Halloween Party Cupcakes

I love that there are always new PEEPS for different holidays. This year for Halloween it's Monster PEEPS. You'll find them at your local store or online. Love the green. You can use them in this recipe from Betty Crocker for PEEPS Halloween Party Cupcakes. You can use the Betty Crocker chocolate fudge cake mix or another...or make your own chocolate cupcakes from scratch.

PEEPS® Halloween Party Cupcakes

1 box Betty Crocker SuperMoist chocolate fudge cake mix
Water, vegetable oil and eggs called for on cake mix box
1 container Betty Crocker frosting (any flavor)
 Halloween candy sprinkles, colored sugar or finely crushed creme-filled chocolate sandwich cookies 24 Assorted Halloween PEEPS® brand Marshmallow Shapes

Heat oven to 375°F. Place paper baking cup in each of 24 regular-size muffin cups.
Make cake batter as directed on box. Divide batter evenly among muffin cups. Bake as directed on box for cupcakes.
Cool in pans 10 minutes; remove from pans to cooling racks. Cool completely, about 30 minutes.
Frost cupcakes with frosting. Sprinkle with candy sprinkles, colored sugar or cookie crumbs.
