  4. 1 cup confectioners’ sugar

  1. Prepare cake mix as cupcakes according to package directions. Let cool completely.

  3. Pipe a small circle of icing on top of each cookie. Place a chocolate kiss on top of icing to resemble top of witch hat, and place a pumpkin-shaped sprinkle in icing at base of chocolate kiss to resemble a buckle. Let stand for 15 to 20 minutes for icing to set.
