1. Using your butter knife, frost a cupcake with the vanilla frosting.

2. Pour the chocolate chip morsels in the microwave safe bowl and microwave in 30 second increments. Stir the morsels with your spoon in between each 30 second increment. Keep heating until completely melted.

3. Cut the tip of your icing bag off and place your fine frosting tip in the bag aligning it with the hole. Using your spoon, fill the piping bag with the melted morsels.

4. Gently squeeze out the chocolate onto the cupcake frosting in rings.

– The chocolate will harden quickly so make sure to work fast and don’t be afraid to reheat the chocolate once it starts to harden. Do not reheat the chocolate in the piping bag.

– Clean your fine frosting tip and microwavable bowl right after. The chocolate will harden and it becomes difficult to get it off.


Happy Halloween! (View the Ghouls Night Party here & purchase the collection in our shop click here!)
