Chocolate Pumpkin Cupcakes
Happy Halloween!! I bring you easy, delicious chocolate pumpkin cupcakes today for the celebrations, in case you are in need of last minute recipe ideas.
Do you guys have any spooky plans?? This will be our first year going trick-o-treating and I am surprisingly excited to go out with Elliott. Probably more so than he is as he has no idea what is going on at 15 months. He is skeptical about why he has to wear a strange outfit the past week. He had one halloween party at a friend’s house last weekend and he was having a lot of fun running around in his Flash costume.
Mr. J and I are going as Batman and Wonder Woman (respectively) to complete our Justice League family (Yes, we are nerds!!). I have no idea why I am so excited but probably because we will be having these chocolate pumpkin cupcakes and other treats with some friends.
I actually made these cupcakes a few weeks ago when I had left over pumpkin pie filling from these pumpkin pie trifles. It was a great way to use the pumpkin pie filling in a frosting. The cupcakes are my usual go-to chocolate cupcake recipe – decadent, moist and delicious. Then topped with a smooth, sweet pumpkin pie filling frosting. The combination of chocolate and pumpkin is always so heavenly and these cupcakes do not disappoint. They will be perfect for your Halloween celebrations but also great for Thanksgiving as we get closer to that over the next few weeks.
