This recipe is perfect for any occasion, depending on the decor of your muffins. For Halloween baking, I chose a chocolate spider web and a mastic witch hat.

Why is Halloween the best holiday

Halloween is an ancient holiday with a hazy past, the most popular and a great reason to have fun! On Halloween, it is customary to dress up in costumes of evil spirits and cook a bunch of sweets in the form of insects, ghosts, witches, skeletons, and other horrors of this and other worlds. The night of October 31, the eve of All Saints’ Day, is commonly celebrated by children who dress in costume and go door-to-door asking for candy — “Trick or Treat”!

Decor for Halloween muffins

Spider web:

  • For the spider web, we need a dark chocolate bar and a pastry bag. Break the chocolate, put it in a bag, put it in the microwave for 1.5-2 minutes.
  • Place a piece of cling foil on a hard, flat surface with the glossy side up, cut a corner off the pastry bag. Draw cobwebs with melted chocolate, refrigerate for a while to freeze the blanks. Carefully remove the spider webs from the foil.
Cupcake decorations
To easily remove the chocolate from the foil, sprinkle cooking spray on the surface of the foil.

Witch hat:

I had only white mastic; I dyed it myself, adding a few drops of gel dye and kneading it like a regular dough.

  • Pinch off two pieces of black mastic, blind from a tiny circle, roll out with a rolling pin. On the other, you need to mold a cap with a strong base. Roll the orange mastic thinly, cut into thin strips, glue a white mastic buckle in the middle. You should have a belt.

Happy Halloween to you and your kids!
