Eat It - Bloody Spiked Cupcakes

We are officially in October, and that means its time to talk all things Halloween! I am excited to finally share several fun Halloween DIY's, cocktails, and recipes that I have been working on. First up are these bloody spiked cupcakes. I found fun little shot pipettes at the craft store and knew that they would be perfect for a little gory Halloween action. But I didn't fill these with just edible fake blood, I filled with with spiked edible fake blood for a tasty boozy treat. Yum!

Oh yes! These tasty little red velvet cupcakes are spiked with mixture of vodka and cranberry simple syrup. So not only are they tasty and boozy, they are the perfect amount of gore for your Halloween festivities. 

To make, start with store bought cupcakes. Any flavor will do, but of course red velvet are perfect for Halloween.

You will also need these Shot Tops or similar mini pipettes

For the spiked syrup:
  • 1 cup cranberries
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 2-3 shots of vodka or alcohol of your choice
Add all the ingredients to a small pot and bring to a boil. Cook until the sugar dissolves and the cranberries start to pop open. Transfer to a blender and blend well, then strain into a storage container or measuring cup. Then add the alcohol and stir to mix well.

Now that you have all the components, simply snip the bottom off the shot tops, pinch to draw up the spiked "blood" into the pipette and place in your cupcakes.

Your friends then get to pinch the pipette to fill their cupcakes with the liquor syrup before they eat them. So fun, right?!

For an extra spooky factor, drizzle a bit of the cranberry simple syrup over the cupcakes and serving plate.

Not big into cocktails? Then just omit the vodka for a Halloween treat for all ages. I have to say, however, that booze, cupcakes, and Halloween are seriously the best combo ever!
