Even though Trick-or-Treat is usually the highlight of our Halloween festivities, it falls on a night other than Halloween in our city, so the actual holiday is often times overlooked. I wanted things to be a little different today, so I took our "plain Jane" dinner menu, added some new titles to our dishes, created a cute menu to print out and a more interesting meal suddenly took the place of hot dogs and fries. The pumpkin cupckakes were my own favorite Pumpkin Chip Muffins (without the chips), filled with a cream cheese mixture and topped with chocolate chips before baking.

  • Cupcakes
  • 4 eggs

  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon or pumpkin pie spice
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 2 cups semi-sweet chocolate chips

How to make it

  2. Combine flour, baking soda, baking powder, cinnamon and salt. Add to pumpkin mixture and mix well. Fold in chips.
