How do I make it ?
Prepare cake batter as directed on package; blend in dry pudding mix. Spoon evenly into 24 paper-lined medium muffin cups. Bake as directed on package for cupcakes. Cool completely.
Beat cream cheese, butter and vanilla with electric mixer on medium speed until well blended. Gradually add sugar, beating well after each addition. Spread evenly onto cupcakes.
Place 1 fruit snack on top of each cupcake. Add 1 candy-coated chocolate piece to centre of each to resemble an eyeball. Draw squiggly lines with decorating gel around the eyes to resemble veins.
