  • 325g chocolate biscuit crumbs
  • 1 tub chocolate frosting
  • 1 packet 'Wummis' (gummy worms)

  1. Prepare cake mix according to packet directions. Pour mixture into muffin tins and bake as directed on cake mix box. Let cupcakes cool thoroughly before icing.
  2. Spread cupcakes lightly with chocolate frosting. Sprinkle biscuit crumbs on top.
  3. Cut gummi worms in half (as many as you like). Put icing onto cut end of the worms and stick to the top of cupcakes. You can use as few or as many as will fit on each cupcake. Let icing set for 10 minutes and then enjoy.
