These Spider Web Halloween Cupcakes undoubtedly make for a stunning dessert that is a must-make for a Halloween party. Turn a store-bought cotton candy into a spider web and transform these delicious chocolate cupcakes into spooktacular treats! These cupcakes are extra chocolatey (thanks to dark cocoa powder), soft, moist, and with a perfect amount of crumb. Each cupcake is frosted with delicious vanilla-flavored buttercream frosting. Delicious and spooky. A double win for Halloween!

This easy-to-follow recipe uses one bowl for the cupcakes and one for the frosting. While the cupcakes are cooling, you can make the frosting. Frost the cupcakes and loosely set the cotton candy on top. For best results, set the cotton candy on the cupcakes just before serving. Place cute little spiders on the candy web and serve. Enjoy!
