Halloween Spiderweb Cupcakes

These cupcakes are fun to serve for a children's or adult Halloween party.

Yield: 2 dozen cupcakes

Halloween Spiderweb CupcakesMuffins:
1 1/2 cups sugar
1/4 cup Land O'Lakes Butter, softened
2 eggs
1 cup Land O'Lakes Sour Cream
1/2 cup milk
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1/2 cup unsweetened cocoa
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt

Frosting:
3 cups powdered sugar
1/4 cup Land O'Lakes Butter, softened
3 to 4 tablespoons milk

Glaze:
1 cup semi-sweet real chocolate chips
4 teaspoons shortening

Heat oven to 350 F.

Combine sugar and 1/4 cup butter in large mixer bowl. Beat at medium speed, scraping bowl often, until well mixed (1 to 2 minutes). Add eggs; continue beating until creamy (1 to 2 minutes). Add sour cream, milk and vanilla. Continue beating until well mixed. Add all remaining cupcake ingredients. Reduce speed to low; beat until well mixed (1 to 2 minutes).

Fill each paper-lined muffin cup with about 2 tablespoons batter. Bake for 20 to 25 minutes or until toothpick inserted in center comes out clean. Cool completely.

Combine powdered sugar and 1/4 cup butter in small mixer bowl. Beat at low speed, scraping bowl often and gradually adding enough milk for desired spreading consistency.

Melt chocolate chips and shortening in 1-quart saucepan over low heat, stirring occasionally, until smooth (3 to 4 minutes). Place melted chocolate in small heavy-duty resealable plastic food bag; snip tip from one corner to make very small hole.

Frost 6 cupcakes at a time, using about 1 tablespoon frosting for each cupcake. (Decorate cupcakes before frosting hardens.) Place 3 concentric circles of melted chocolate on frosting. Starting at center, draw toothpick 5 or 6 times through chocolate circles to outside edge of frosting to make spiderweb design. Repeat with remaining cupcakes and frosting. Let stand until chocolate is firm.

TIP:
Microwave chocolate chips and shortening in small heavy-duty resealable plastic food bag on HIGH until chips are melted (30 to 60 seconds). Squeeze bag several times to combine melted chips and shortening.
