Jack Skellington (The Nightmare Before Christmas) Cupcakes

Ingredients:

½ Cup butter, softened to room temperature

2 eggs

1 Cup milk

1 tsp. white vinegar

1 ½ Cup flour

1 Cup sugar

1 tsp. baking soda

1 tsp. salt

1/3 Cup cocoa powder

 

Other products needed –

12 oz. bag Wilton black candy melts

1 small sandwich baggie

toothpick

1 container of white frosting

 

Cupcake Directions:

#1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F and grease 12ct. cupcake tin.

#2. In a medium bowl combine the ½ cup of softened butter, 2 eggs, milk, sugar and vinegar. Beat until smooth.

#3. In a separate bowl combine the flour,baking soda, salt and cocoa powder. Mix well and slowly fold the dry ingredients into the wet ingredients stirring until smooth and all lumps are gone.

#4. Pour the batter evenly into the cupcake tin and bake 19-21 minutes. Around 19 minutes insert a clean toothpick into the cupcakes and if it comes out clean they are done.

Allow the cupcakes to cool completely prior to decorating.

 

Jack Directions –

#1. Once the cupcakes are completely cooled generously frost each one with white frosting. Place them on a baking sheet or large plate and set in the set for about 15 minutes so the frosting sets up a bit.

#2. Put about 6 oz. of the Wilton black candy melts into a microwave safe dish. Heat in 20 second increments stirring every 20 seconds until melted. This should only take about 2 minutes with 6 oz.

#3. Allow the melted chocolate to cool 3-4 minutes and scoop it into the small sandwich baggie. Make a small snip in the corner of the baggie and gently squeeze the chocolate out onto the cupcakes making 2 oval eyes, 2 small marks for a nose and a mouth. I filled in the eyes with chocolate and used the toothpick to fill in the eyes and smooth out as needed.

#8. Repeat with all the cupcakes.

*Makes approximately 12 Jack cupcakes. 1 cupcake = 1 serving.

  1. Thank you for sharing! This looks like something even I could put together. Might just bake some of these with my 9 year old great niece.

  2. My husband would *love* these, but mostly your post reminded me that I haven’t seen the Nightmare Before Christmas yet this year! Our weather doesn’t really seem like fall, so it’s slipped my mind. Visiting from the From Dream to Reality hop!

  3. It’s been a long time since I have seen this movie but I do remember liking Oogie Boogie! These cupcakes would sure be a hit in my house for Halloween.

  4. These are so cute. My 5 year old watched Nightmare Before Christmas for the first time the other day and she would love these.
