For the Cupcakes

  • 1 box Devils Food Cake Mix can use sugar free
  • 1 12oz can of dark soda use diet or regular

For the Icing

  • 1 container of Cool Whip use light or regular
  • ¼ cup powdered sugar
  • 1 cup 2% milk
  • 1 box instant vanilla pudding mix small box
  • dash of salt


  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  • Combine cake mix and soda, stir until combined.
  • Line cupcake pan with liners. Fill 1/2 to ⅔ of the way full with the batter.
  • Bake at 350 degrees for 8-12 minutes.
  • Combine the pudding mix, powdered sugar, vanilla, salt, and milk in a mixing bowl. Beat on medium speed with a mixer until well blended. ** Do not overmix!
  • Fold in the Cool Whip.
  • Let cupcakes cool for a few minutes in the pan, then transfer to a wire rack. After they have completely cooled, start icing.
  • Pipe the cool whip or icing using a Ziploc bag with a small hole cut in the corner or use a cake piping bag with an open cake decorating tip (preferably a bigger one). Pipe in a circular motion to be sure your icing is tall enough to look like a ghost and have room to place your chocolate chips.
  • Place the mini chocolate chips for eyes and the mouth.
