Step 1: Supplies!
A Small Box of Whoppers
Milk Chocolate Melts
White Chocolate Melts
Candy Corn Pumpkins
Chocolate Fudge Cookies
9 Baked Cupcakes, preferably chocolate and unwrapped.
3 Sugar Cones
Skeleton Candy Mold (Optional)
Meat Mallet or Hammer
Large Ziplock Bag
2 Small Ziplock Bags
Cake Stand or Large Plate
Step 2: Melting Chocolate!
Stick the bag in the microwave and put it on for 1 minute. This should be plenty of time to melt all the chocolate. Take a pair of scissors and snip one of the corners off, not too much! Just enough to do some detail work.
Step 3: Bones and Tombstones!
Then take a couple of your Hershey bars and break them into single blocks.
On the smooth side of the Hershey blocks, pip on random tombstone designs such as "R.I.P" and Crosses.
Step 4: Dirt!
Take your hammer or meat mallet and let all your pent up rage and stress be put into destroying those cookies! Pound them out until your cookies resemble a course dirt/pebble substance. Set the bag aside for now.
Note: If you use a meat mallet, be sure to use the side without any teeth or you will tear holes in your bag and make a mess!
Step 5: Rooftops!
Cut off the pointed end of each cone, leaving a flat surface to apply the whoppers too.
Step 6: Rooftops Pt. 2
Once you have them melted, pipe out a dot on the top of each cone and stick a whopper on it. Put them in the refrigerator to cool quickly and fully glue the whopper to the cone.
After the whopper is attached, you can use the chocolate melts to pipe on shingles. Stick the cones back in the refrigerator to once again cool and harden the chocolate designs.
Step 7: Putting It Together!
Prepare your cake stand or plate by pouring out your bag of crushed cookies onto it and spreading it around evenly.
Then take 5 of your frosted and sprinkled cupcakes and place them onto the stand or plate in two rows.
The top row made up of two cupcakes centered and the bottom row made up of 3 cupcakes centered as shown in my photo.
Step 8: Building Up the Towers!
One cupcake will go on each end cupcake on the row of 3. The other cupcake with be centered in between the remaining 3 cupcakes without anything on them.
Step 9: Building Up the Towers Pt. 2!
You can also begin to decorated the dirt below with various white chocolate bones you made, the Hershey tombstones, and the candy corn pumpkins.
Step 10: Applying Rooftops!
Step 11: Windows!
The photo shows you the layout.
Step 12: Finishing Touches!
I used the skull from my skeleton chocolate mold to add character. To make the door I used a 2-block from a Hershey bar and piped on little door knobs. I also broke off more single Hershey bar blocks to use as a pathway up to the front door. If I could do it again I would also fill in the window panes with white chocolate to make it look like there are lights on in the house maybe.
Anyway! Have fun with it, get creative, and make it your own!
