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?

Vanilla bean and chocolate spice. Can you think of a better, more wintery combination? We can’t. These cupcakes meld the combo perfectly with real vanilla bean and a touch of chili pepper. The recipe even wraps up these yummy packages with beautiful orange sugar flowers.

Malteaser Cupcakes

Malteaser Cupcakes

If you ask us, the foundation of any good cupcake is a good base recipe. Add in a favorite chocolate candy, and you’re in for the perfect sweet, tiny cake. For these malteaser cupcakes, “wet” chocolate batter results in a less cakey, more moist and fudgy sort of cupcake, and these little dudes are also topped with delicious malt balls perfect for cuddling up with a movie or taking in a weekend holiday party. Grab yourself some malt powder (think Ovaltine) and the usual plethora of baking goods and get cooking!
