Start by making the cupcakes.

Line a muffin pan with paper cupcake liners and set aside. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.

In a separate bowl, whisk together butter, sugar and eggs. Add sour cream and fold.

In thirds, add dry ingredients into wet ingredients and mix until fully incorporated.

How To Make Buttercream

To make the buttercream, add butter, icing sugar and milk into a large bowl.

Using an electric mixer, beat all ingredients on low speed and gradually increase to high.

Once all ingredients are well-combined and form semi-stiff peaks, the buttercream is ready.

Scoop buttercream into a piping bag with Wilton #10 attached and frost the center of each cupcake.

How To Make Your Frankenstein Cupcakes

To begin decorating, line a pan with wax paper and set aside.

Insert a toothpick in the center of each marshmallow, making sure it doesn’t come through the other side of the marshmallow.

Place candy melts into a microwave-safe bowl. Microwave in 30-second intervals until candy is completely melted.

Dip each marshmallow into green candy and place gently on lined pan.

Place 2 eyes on each marshmallow.

Snap off a small piece of the pretzel stick and place one on either side of the coated marshmallow.
