1 box (15 ounces) chocolate cake mix, baked as cupcakes according to pkg. directions
1 pkg. (8 ounces) cream cheese, softened
1/4 cup unsalted butter, room temperature
3 1/2 cups powdered sugar
1/2 cup cocoa powder
1 pkg. (14 ounces) Oreo cookies, finely crushed
48 gummy worms
Use a mixer to beat cream cheese and butter together until smooth and creamy. Gradually mix in powdered sugar, about one cup at a time. Mix in cocoa powder. Beat until smooth. Frost the cooled cupcakes and sprinkle on the cookie crumbs for dirt. Place a couple gummy worms on top of each cupcake. Makes 24 cupcakes.
No time to make homemade frosting? No problem. Just use 1 can of chocolate frosting to frost the cupcakes.
