Chocolate Pudding Spider Cupcakes

Happy Halloween!

You will need: 1 recipe for chocolate cupcakes for the body (below), 1 recipe for choclate pudding for the frosting (below), chocolate dipped stick pretzels for the legs, and chopped, white chocolate chips for the eyes.
3 C flour
1 tsp salt
¾ C cocoa powder
2 C sugar
2 tsp soda
¾ C oil
2 TBS apple cider vinegar
2 tsp vanilla
2 C cold water

Mix ingredients together in bowl.
 Pour into cupcake pans. Bake at 350 for 10-15 minutes. For the smaller cupcakes, bake for a little bit less.
1/2 cup white sugar
3 tablespoons unsweetened cocoa powder
1/4 cup cornstarch
1/8 teaspoon salt
2 3/4 cups milk
2 tablespoons margarine or butter
1 teaspoon vanilla extract

In a saucepan, stir together sugar, cocoa, cornstarch and salt. Place over medium heat, and stir in milk. Bring to a boil, and cook, stirring constantly, until mixture thickens enough to coat the back of a metal spoon. Remove from heat, and stir in margarine and vanilla. Let cool briefly, and serve warm, or chill in refrigerator until serving.
