NFL Game Day Cupcakes

NFL Game Day Cupcakes

As far as Americans are concerned, there’s only one thing better than chocolate: chocolate and football. This Sunday is the big game, and when it comes to Super Bowl fandom in the sweet realm, these cupcakes deliver. Or should we say, “score!”? In either case, whip up a batch of these delectable chocolate cakes, topped with chocolate-dipped marshmallow frosting, and get super festive by opting for team-colored sprinkles or even plastic toppers. Whether you’re hosting or just bringing sweets, you’re sure to be the MVP of the snack collection.

P.S. We know Green Bay’s not in the Super Bowl. Give us some leeway!

Like gingerbread, peppermint is a flavor many associate with Christmas and the holiday season.

Chocolate Cupcakes with M&M Frosting

Chocolate Cupcakes with M&M Frosting

Blizzards, Blasts, McFlurries and the like have taught us that Americans love to mix candy in their already-sweet treats, which explains the inspiration for these cupcakes. Chocolate cupcakes, especially this recipe featuring coffee and dark chocolate cocoa powder, are luscious enough on their own, but top them with “PILES” of vanilla frosting laden with M&M candy, and we can’t think of one person who’d say no. Can you?

Butterfinger Cupcakes

Butterfinger Cupcakes

No matter how much you love Butterfinger, it’s impossible to deny the sticky, almost painful mess that is Butterfinger in teeth. If only there were some way to get the delicious flavor of that luscious peanut butter and chocolate combination without the inability to open your mouth for the rest of the day. These Butterfinger cupcakes are the perfect combination of that flavor, without the pain and suffering of Butterfinger aftermath. Topped with a delicious, crunchy Butterfinger frosting to offset the very strong (but delicate) chocolate cake underneath, these are simply a must-make (and a must-eat) for any chocolate / peanut butter lover.

Snickers Cupcakes

Snickers Cupcakes

There’s nothing quite as comforting, during any season, as the perfect candy bar, and Snickers may be just that. Of course, we’re fans of cupcakes as the perfect sweet treat. Thankfully, these Snickers cupcakes combine the best of both worlds with their yummy rich chocolate base and chocolate peanut butter frosting. That combination is enough of a treat in itself, but drizzle your creation with caramel sauce and top it with a slice of Snickers, and there’s just nothing else to be desired. These scrumptious dessert cups are a real crowd-pleaser, especially if you’re indoors braving a cold winter. So make a few extra, in the spirit of giving.
