After the excitements of trick or treating, it’s nice to enjoy these Halloween Vampire Bite Cupcakes at home while talking with your kids about what Halloween treats they snagged!

If you are to host a Halloween party and celebrating it at home or in another venue, these cupcakes are just perfect as a dessert, too. I think they can be partnered perfectly with these Vampire Teeth Cupcakes, as well.

 As the base of the cupcakes, using a box of Chocolate Cake Mix can make everything easier than making everything from the scratch. And then combining it with Chocolate Pudding mix and some brewed coffee will make the difference. 

However, you can use your own cupcake recipe as the base if you prefer, of course.
