Chile Mocha Cupcakes

Chile Mocha Cupcakes

So here is my new obsession; these chile mocha cupcakes. They are of course inspired by the new Starbucks fall drink, the chile mocha.

A sweet combination of cocoa, cinnamon with a small kick from ancho and cayenne chile. The true definition of sweet and spicy if you ask me and just what you need for those mornings when you need an extra kick. Like today!!!

Pumpkin Chocolate Cupcakes

When a good thing is a good thing.. it’s a good thing! And that’s how I feel about pumpkin and chocolate. It’s meant to be.

So we decided to double the deliciousness. 2 times the pumpkin and 2 times the chocolate. With that much goodness packed into one small cup, and in a pretty design, this autumn recipe can’t go wrong.

There’s no rule that maple syrup can only be used on pancakes and waffles, and this cupcake recipe takes full advantage of that.

Featuring maple syrup in both the cake and the frosting, in addition to a little brown sugar, these cups of goodness are sure to hit the spot, whether you’re munching for breakfast, a late night snack or anything in between.

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!

Twinkie Cupcakes

Twinkie Cupcakes

Twinkies are a pop culture icon, as well as a snack cake. They’re something that everyone can recognize, even if your mom never packed one of the cream filled sponge cakes in your lunchbox when you were a kid.

Are they true to the original Twinkie? I will be the first to admit that these are not meant to be clones of the snack cake. But they are based on the same idea as the original snack cake and they taste a whole lot better than “real” Twinkies do.

Cinnamon Chocolate Cupcakes with Nutella Frosting

Cinnamon Chocolate Cupcakes with Nutella Frosting

As the weather cools and we start making treats for parties galore, it’s easy to go straight for a standard vanilla or chocolate cupcake recipe. While there’s definitely nothing wrong with classic, these cinnamon chocolate cupcakes and their Nutella frosted tops offer just the right twist on a traditional flavor.

The warm cinnamon flavor goes perfectly with the rich chocolate in the cake, and you can’t beat Nutella frosting. Really, if you like the flavor of cinnamon at all, I wholeheartedly recommend these cupcakes.
