Bloody Halloween Cupcakes

Enjoy these bloody Halloween cupcakes with oozey centres as a deliciously spooky treat, made super easy with our allergy-friendly Chocolate Cake mix.

We love this fun idea for turning our gluten-free vegan Chocolate Cake mix into Bloody Halloween cupcakes with raspberry jam "blood" drizzles and oozey jam centres.

Simply bake Halo & Swoon Chocolate Cake mix into cupcakes according to the packet instructions. When cool, use a small knife to pierce the centre of each cupcake and pipe raspberry jam in to create the bloody centres.

Top with swirls of your favourite vanilla frosting (check out our amazing vegan cream cheese frosting recipe here), then drizzle raspberry "blood" jam over top.
