Whether you’re hosting or just bringing sweets, you’re sure to be the MVP of the snack collection.

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.

Chocolate Cupcakes with Pumpkin Spice Buttercream

Chocolate Cupcakes with Pumpkin Spice Buttercream

Chocolate goes with just about anything, and as this recipe proves, that includes pumpkin. We don’t think dark chocolate gets enough attention, but these cupcakes are out to change that, pairing the slightly bitter taste with pumpkin spice buttercream for a treat beyond your imagination. Even sweet-eaters who don’t like pumpkin should give this one a try, as the pumpkin spice is just a final touch on an already delectable chocolate cupcake. The perfect treat to welcome winter and warm up your closest friends, this cupcake may just change your mind about pumpkin and its place in the holiday season.

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!
