Spooky Halloween Tombstone PEEPS™ Cupcakes DIY

Halloween is one of our most favorite holidays. It can be fun, spooky, or downright creepy. Today, we have the perfect Halloween Cupcake DIY that you can pull off with any skill level, and with as much or as little effort as you desire. Kid tested and giddily approved!

Seriously, how stinking cute! Follow along to see how we made these spooky graveyard cupcakes.

Graveyard Cupcake Supplies
Tombstone Halloween Peeps

Here's what you need:

  • 1 Package Tombstone Marshmallow Peeps
  • Cupcakes with icing (Homemade, store-bought, you choose! Any flavor and color will do. The package of peeps will make 12 cupcakes)
  • Chocolate sandwich cookies. Approximately 6
  • 12" Wooden skewers cut into thirds.

First, spread out the icing so it resembles the texture of the ground.

Doesn't have to be perfect! You just need a good base to put the "dirt" on.


Next, crumble your chocolate cookies into dirt and sprinkle the dirt onto each cupcake.

Separate the chocolate cookies from the creamy center. Discard the icing. Place just the cookies into a zip top bag. Use a rolling pin, or some good old fashioned kid-power to crush the cookies into a fine dirt. We thought leaving some larger cookie chunks gave the best effect.


Push a skewer into the bottom of each tombstone, until it feels nice and sturdy.

Doesn't have to be perfect! Even kids can complete this task. The most important point is that the skewer is in far enough to support the Marshmallow Peep Tombstone.

Push each skewered tombstone down into the center of each cupcake.

This is where you can get creative. Push them in off-centered, crooked, any way you think looks best!

Now step back and admire your job well done! How adorable.
