There’s something about chocolate pumpkin cupcakes that sounds so strange, but tastes so great. The cupcake batter is made of some basic ingredients (flour, eggs, baking soda, salt, sugar) and some more unusual ones (pumpkin puree, orange juice, cinnamon, ginger, nutmeg, allspice.) Don’t worry – it also contains melted bittersweet chocolate and semi-sweet chocolate chips! Top with pumpkin pie spice frosting after baking, and then add on chocolate-coated wafer cookies to make them look “witchy.”

Nothing says “autumn” quite like a pumpkin cupcake. Add in the cheesecake filling, and top them with nutella buttercream, and you have yourself a very delectible, fall-themed cupcake in your hands. The trick to making these? Assemble the cheesecake and bake it. Then, as you’re spooning the pumpkin cupcake batter into the liners, add in a cupcake-sized chunk of cheesecake. Smother it with more batter and then bake. Sounds simple, right? It is!!

Picture this: pumpkin cupcakes covered in a fine layer of maple cream cheese frosting. Does that sound “fall” enough to you? Yes, but we are not done yet. Added to the top of each cupcake is a thin layer of crumbled up Oreo cookie crumbs that, after dipping, resemble the potting soil found in a flower pot, only chocolate-y and completely edible. The fondant flowers, made with the help of a blossom-shaped cookie cutter and some ingenuity, add to the illusion when placed atop the Oreo cookie “dirt.” The results are colorful, tasty and fall-like in appearance!
