Chocolate Coconut Easter Cupcakes

Chocolate Coconut Easter Cupcakes

While there is something to be said for light, citrusy spring-like desserts at Easter, it’s hard to deny that chocolate is a pretty good fit for the holiday.

These cupcakes are moist and chocolaty, with a great cocoa flavor to them. The recipe makes a big batch of two dozen cupcakes, so it is perfect for a party, although you can cut the recipe in half for a smaller batch.

Reindeer Cupcakes

Reindeer Cupcakes

Christmas Day is finally here, and we can’t think of a better way to celebrate than by toasting to Santa’s main man, Rudolph.

These adorable reindeer cupcakes pay homage to the outcast reindeer who lit the way for gifts and goodies and went down in history. They’re likely to go the same way, after they hit taste buds and tummies.

Santa. Your reindeer taste so good. In the form of a super moist, super chocolatey cupcake.

Of course, Rudolph and his friends are covered in whipped chocolate frosting that tastes almost mousse like and then decorated with chocolate covered pretzels, mini Nilla Wafers and M&Ms. Seriously, I never knew Reindeer could taste so good!

Turkey Face Cupcakes

Turkey Face Cupcakes

A fun dessert for Thanksgiving weekend, besides what will you eat for dessert when the pumpkin pie is gone? These Turkey Face Cupcakes will be perfect, trust me!

Pie seems to get eaten pretty fast by the time breakfast rolls around the day after Thanksgiving in our house, so these would be perfect for dessert, drop-per by-ers and YOU of course. You look like you could use a cute cupcake. I know I could after tackling a 20 pound turkey!

Black Velvet Spider Cupcakes

Black Velvet Spider Cupcakes

Black Velvet Spider Cupcakes are a wonderful addition to a Halloween menu. The flavor of the cupcakes match the classic red velvet cupcake, but are dyed black instead of the traditional red.

These black velvet cupcakes can form the base of many Halloween inspired recipes, but today they are represented as frightful little spiders. A few decorative ingredients turn the black velvet cupcakes into creepy-crawly creatures which will (deliciously) frighten your guests.

Pumpkin Walnut Spider Cupcakes

Pumpkin Walnut Spider Cupcakes

What’s scarier.. spiders or snakes? Luckily we don’t have to worry about smashing these spiders! They are actually invited to the halloween party!

These spider cupcakes start with pumpkin walnut cupcake batter, and that might just be my favorite part! They are pretty simple to make and they have great flavor from the brown sugar, pumpkin pie spice, and pumpkin puree. The walnuts add a great crunch and I’m pretty sure walnuts and pumpkin go together like peanut butter and chocolate 🙂 The only thing you’ll have to worry about with these adorable spiders is how to eat them!
