  • 12 chocolate-frosted 
  • chocolate cupcakes
  • 1/2 cup white chocolate chip
  • Red food coloring
  • Blue food coloring
  • Light corn syrup
  • Hot water
  • 1 cup of chow mein noodles
  • 1/2 cup chocolate cookie wafer crumbs

How to make it

Start with a dozen chocolate-frosted chocolate cupcakes. Then make the worm topping by melting 1/2 cup white chocolate chips in a microwave for 1 minute and stirring them until smooth.

Stir in 5 drops of red food coloring, 1 drop of blue food coloring, and 1 tablespoon each of light corn syrup and hot water. Gently fold in 1 cup of chow mein noodles until they are evenly coated.
Scoop the mixture onto waxed paper and use two forks to separate the noodles into individual worms or smaller clumps.

Allow about 20 minutes for the coating to set. Meanwhile, sprinkle the cupcakes with chocolate cookie wafer crumbs (1/2 cup should be plenty for one dozen) and gently press them into the frosting. 

When the worms are ready, arrange them on top.
