Toppings 1 can (16oz) Chocolate frosting 12 Oreo cookies 1 bag Brachs candy pumpkins 1 bag Green colored candy melts
Prepare cake batter according to the package directions for making cupcakes. Bake and let cool completely.
Crush Oreo cookies in a food processor until fine crumbs. Pour crumbs into a large shallow dish or cereal bowl.

Frost the top of the cupcakes with chocolate frosting.
Roll the frosted cupcakes in the Oreo crumbs, making sure to evenly coat the top of the frosting so that as much frosting is covered as possible.
Repeat the frosting and crumbs for all cupcakes.
In a microwave safe bowl, melt the green chocolate for 1 minute, followed by 30 second intervals, stirring between each until smooth.
Pour melted candy into a pastry bag or a Ziploc bag with the corner snipped.
Place a candy pumpkin at the center of each cupcake.
Pipe small vines and leaves over the top of your cupcakes using the green chocolate. Repeat for all cupcakes.
