  1. 3 cups baking mix
  2. 1 cup granulated sugar
  3. 1 cup packed brown sugar
  4. 1/4 cup butter or margarine, softened
  5. 2 teaspoons pumpkin pie spice
  6. 1/4 cup milk
  7. 4 eggs
  8. 1 can (15 oz) pumpkin (not pumpkin pie mix)
  9. 1 package (3 oz) cream cheese, softened
  10. 1/2 cup butter or margarine, softened
  11. 2 teaspoons vanilla
  12. 4 1/2 cups powdered sugar
  13. 2 teaspoons miniature chocolate chips
  1. Heat oven to 350°F. Line 24 regular-size muffin cups with paper baking cups.
  2. 2In large bowl, beat Bisquick mix, granulated sugar, brown sugar, 1/4 cup butter, the pumpkin pie spice, milk, eggs and pumpkin with electric mixer on low speed 30 seconds. Beat on medium speed 3 minutes. Divide batter evenly among muffin cups.
  3. 3Bake 25 to 30 minutes or until toothpick inserted in center of cupcake comes out clean. Cool 5 minutes; remove from pan to wire rack. Cool completely, about 30 minutes.
  4. 4Meanwhile, in large bowl, beat cream cheese and 1/2 cup butter on low speed about 30 seconds or until well blended. Beat in vanilla and 2 cups of the powdered sugar on low speed about 30 seconds or just until mixed, then on high speed about 1 minute or until fluffy. Beat in remaining 2 1/2 cups powdered sugar, 1/4 cup at a time, on medium speed. If too soft to mound, add additional powdered sugar, a tablespoon at a time, until desired consistency.
  5. 5Spoon frosting into large resealable plastic food-storage bag; press out air and seal bag. Cut 1/2-inch tip from lower corner of bag. Squeeze bag to pipe about 2 tablespoons frosting into ghost-shaped mound on each cupcake. Press 2 chocolate chips, flat sides out, into frosting for eyes.
