Gingerbread is most thought of around the Christmas season, but we’re milking this chilly weather flavor for everything we can with these gingerbread cupcakes.

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?

Milky Way Bar Cupcakes

Milky Way Bar Cupcakes

We’ve posted plenty of recipes for candy bars posing as cupcakes, but this recipe has a little something new. These Milky Way cupcakes aren’t just topped with pieces of Milky Way or baked with a little candy bar goodness inside. Instead, this recipe tops simple, but delicious, yellow cupcakes with Milky Way frosting.

Whether you opt for a few large bars or 12 small ones, this frosting is sure to hit that chocolate sweet tooth in all the right spots.
