It’s pumpkin season and I am not talking about pumpkin-flavored everything. I am talking pumpkin farms, jack-o-lanterns, Royal Icing Pumpkins and Pumpkin Spritz Cookies, and pumpkins that go with Fall + Thanksgiving and Halloween too.
These decorated cupcakes are a chocolate lover's dream. They are also perfect for M&M’s fans AND for the fall pumpkin enthusiasts (you know who you are). They may not taste like pumpkin (they don't), but they look like adorably delicious chocolate-y pumpkins, which is SO much better! #isaidwhatisaid #sorrynotsorry
If you are in the camp of loving all things pumpkin spice and everything that tastes like pumpkin then you'll want to check out these drool-worthy pumpkin recipes. I promise you won't be disappointed.
Pumpkin M&M Mini Cupcakes are very easy to create and family-friendly. Plop a little blob of chocolate frosting onto your mini cupcake and then arrange green and orange M&M's Milk Chocolate Candies into a pumpkin shape. 🎃
You can get technical with a disposable pastry bag and a 2A round decorating tip, which I did, or use a sandwich bag as a piping bag and snip the corner off, or just frost with a knife/offset spatula.
This adorable pumpkin treat uses easy to find M&M candies - just separate the orange and green M&M's out of a typical family-sized pack and you're good to go.
Plus, you and your kiddo (or just you - I don't judge) can snack on the colors you aren't using for this fall-inspired treat.
The fall holiday's will sneak up on us faster than they should so it's time to get cracking and make these totes adorbs Pumpkin M&M Mini Cupcakes.
The sooner you make them the sooner you can eat them! #justsaying
Pumpkin M&M Mini Cupcakes
- Gently press an orange M&M into the center of your chocolate frosting blob and then six orange M&M's around the center M&M forming the pumpkin.
- For the stem place a green M&M on its side in between two of the orange M&M's. Eat & Enjoy!
