Halloween is just around the corner and I love baking up special treats for the holidays! This one is super easy to make, really delicious and so cool thanks to these Halloween sprinkles from Sprinkle Pop!! Great vibrant colors, fun shapes and so tasty! These sprinkles add the perfect “spooky” touch to these Mini Halloween Chocolate Cakes! A little trick- I use a donut pan to make these individual sized cakes! You simply fill the batter to the top of each form and they bake up into perfect mini cakes!
I never heard of Sprinkle Pop before #Choctoberfest but wow am I glad I know now! They have such an incredible varieties of sprinkle mixes. From the Halloween, Fall leaves and the red hearts I sampled… there is a great monster mash mix, gorgeous metallic mixes, holiday mixes or you can get a custom mix made up! How awesome! When my package arrived my boys saw the Halloween mix and said “ohhhhh what are you making?”. Let me tell ya, these mini cakes were a big hit!
So I used a boxed chocolate cake mix but to give it a really great homemade feel I substitute butter for the oil and milk for the water. These mini cakes are moist and delicious. I absolutely love cream cheese frosting because the flavor is not only great but its so easy to make too! Simply whip up cream cheese, vanilla, powdered sugar and heavy cream until smooth. What better way to finish off these Halloween treats then with this great All Hallows mix from Sprinkle Pop!
I use an ice cream scoop to quickly and evenly add the frosting onto each mini cake. This recipe makes about 18-20 mini cakes. We shared this batch with friends that all gave it a big thumbs up and I can’t wait to make them again for school parties! I know the kids are going to love this Halloween treat!
