Halloween themed Low Fat Chocolate Mummy Cupcakes are a great choice for any Halloween cupcake needs. They are cute, decadent, and as healthy as a cupcake is ever going to get and still be called a cupcake. The simple vanilla frosting gets piped over the cupcake to give it the appearance of a wrapped mummy. Using M&Ms as eyes are a creative choice that allows you to customize the color of each cupcake. You could even make some mummies with spooky red eyes!

If you truly want a different kind of snack, consider making a batch (or two – you may have a hard time resisting them!) of these mini cinnamon chocolate cupcakes. They are made from, of course, cocoa powder and cinnamon, as well as nutmeg, balsamic vinegar, flour, and a number of other ingredients. The frosting is a spiced buttercream, complete with almond milk and pumpkin pie spice. On top of that are the candied walnuts. All three work together to make an unforgettable combination!

Dark chocolate cake mix, some pretzels, peanut butter frosting and sea salt are combined here to make these unforgettable cupcakes. The cupcakes are easy to make – just follow the instruction on the box, add in correct ingredients and bake. While those are in the oven, the peanut butter, regular butter and sugar are combined to make the frosting. After frosting each cooled off cupcake, sprinkle on some sea salt, place a whole pretzel into the top of each and enjoy!

These chocolate sour cream cupcakes are a chocolate (and cupcake!) lovers dream come true. They are flavored with unsweetened cocoa powder, sour cream, vanilla extract, and brewed coffee. They also contain standard items like flour, sugar, salt, eggs, vegetable oil, baking soda and baking powder. The frosting is an nontraditional ganache, made from heavy cream, bittersweet chocolate and coffee liquor. Top with a few sprinkles before serving, and enjoy! You won’t be able to eat just one!

Sure, you can add sprinkles to a vanilla cupcake mix (this turns them into Funfetti cupcakes) or chocolate chips (which makes them chocolate chip cupcakes), but crushed up chocolate? Yes, it is possible – if you follow this recipe. Rather than adding cocoa powder to the mix, the crushed up chocolate remains suspended in the batter, turning these treats into vanilla cupcakes with chocolate, hence the name. Top off with some buttercream frosting and few sprinkles before serving them!

Any cupcake recipe that consists of chocolate, whipped cream and fruit has to be good. This one in particular starts out with light and airy chocolate cupcakes, made from the recipe or cake mix of your choosing. Once they are baked in festive wrappers (or plain ones) and have had a chance to thoroughly cool off, they are topped with whipped cream. You can either make your own out of whipping cream and sugar, or use the pre-made kind in a canister. Top with a few berries or some berry drizzle (or both) and serve!

Biscoff is an addictive cookie spread that is similar to Nutella (although Nutella is made from chocolate and hazelnuts.) These cupcakes have Biscoff in the frosting, not in the batter itself. In fact, the batter is a simple chocolate cupcake batter, made according to the specifications from your favorite recipe. The frosting is a Biscoff buttercream that is made from butter, vanilla, powdered sugar, milk and the aforementioned Biscoff spread. Frost the cupcakes, sprinkle on some Biscoff cookie bits and enjoy!

Most people associate a vegan diet with vegetables and little else. However, many vegans can eat cupcakes and other treats, as long as the snacks are made without dairy and other animal byproducts. These vegan cupcakes are chocolate, and are topped with a freshly made vegan ganache. Once they’ve been baked, frosted and garnished with a fresh raspberry, you will find little difference between them and other non-vegan treats. Try one and see!

The best way to enhance everyday chocolate cupcakes and turn them into a richer, tastier treat is by infusing them with coffee. This recipe contains unsweetened cocoa powder, brewed coffee and vanilla extract (along with staples like flour, butter, sugar, salt, baking powder and eggs), nothing crazy or exotic. The combination of the coffee and the chocolate is what really matters though. Although you may want to frost your newly baked treats, this recipe provides an alternative option – powdered sugar and fresh fruit. Enjoy!

A delectable and moist chocolate cupcake is made even sweeter, thanks to the addition of chocolate buttercream frosting. Rather than it being spread on with a knife or piped into a swirl with a point at the top, this frosting is arranged so that it looks like petals, or a ruffle, hence the name of these treats: chocolate ruffle cupcakes. While they look so pretty that you will be hesitant to eat them, they are tasty, so don’t hesitate to dig in!
