Make your favourite muffins and then add these cute oreo spiders for an easy Halloween bake
I saw this Halloween oreo spider muffin/cupcake decoration idea on Pinterest and decided to give it a go!
Make whatever muffins are your favourite. You could make cupcakes instead. My recipe index has lots of muffin and cupcake recipes if you need some ideas. For example: chocolate fudge muffins, snickers muffins or Halloween brownie cupcakes.
I made plain vanilla sponge muffins: 4 eggs (large or medium), 8 oz (225g) self-raising flour, 8 oz caster sugar, 8 oz butter/baking margarine and a tsp of vanilla essence/extract. Beat together the butter and sugar until fluffy, stir in the eggs until combined and finally fold in the flour. Divide the mixture into your cases (12 muffins or 24 cupcakes) and bake for about 20 minutes at 180 degrees C (160 fan, 356 degrees F, Gas Mark 4) until risen and golden.
