You know us — we love a good over-the-top Halloween bash. But we all know that time-intensive party planning isn’t always an option. That’s why we’re constantly hunting hacks, shortcuts and time-savers that make our parties memorable, Instagram-worthy and just plain FUN — with minimal elbow grease required. Today, we’re teaming up with Dunkin’ Donuts for a speedy, simple and spooky midnight MUNCHKINS® graveyard to make for this year’s spookfest. We opted for a celestial galaxy design for a refreshing update to classic Halloween vibes, and we loooove the results. Now go grab that box o’ donuts and get playing with your food :)

A major perk to this Halloween hack? It’s easy to crank out dozens of midnight MUNCHKINS® in a pinch with edible food spray. We’ll take the 50ct MUNCHKINS® box, please! ;)

Materials + Tools:

  • Dunkin’ Donuts Cake MUNCHKINS®
  • edible spray paint
  • 1 cup powdered sugar
  • 1 Tablespoon butter
  • 3 Tablespoons milk
  • whisk
  • parchment paper
  • cooling rack
  • serving platter

Instructions:

  1. We’ll start with frosting. Melt the butter, then whisk it together with powdered sugar and milk until combined.
  2. Dip the MUNCHKINS® in frosting, then set onto a cooling rack to harden.
  3. Layer on edible spray paint to make a galaxy pattern. Start on one side and work your way around with the rest of the colors.
  4. Next up, make the graveyard! Crumble MUNCHKINS® to make “dirt” and scatter them around the base of your serving platter. Spray the crumbles with black edible spray paint.
  5. Top the crumbles with the decorated MUNCHKINS® and other graveyard elements like white chocolate bones and spooky paper silhouettes. That’s it!
