Apple Chocolate Spiced Cupcakes With Cider Frosting
Apples are in season (finally!) and if you live up North I can just imagine the beautiful Apple Orchards in full bloom.
Here in Miami, unfortunately, we can’t fully experience the cool weather, apple orchards and pumpkin patches that other states do.
Luckily we can create great fall recipes to simulate the mood like this delicious Apple Chocolate Spiced Cupcakes With Cider Frosting made with Apple Juice and M&M’s.
3 Yummy favorites all wrapped up in a little creamy cupcake.
I think this recipe came in just in the nick of time before Rosh Hashana since this celebration requires apples and a little sweetness to start the year just right.
They taste delicious. I opened the bag to take try them out and my girls went on the attack. Guess I have to buy a few more bags before winter arrives.
To make your cupcakes simply combine dry ingredients and then incorporate wet ingredients. Place batter into cupcake lined molds and bake for 15-17 minutes.
When the cupcakes are ready simply place is cooling rack and cool completely.
Keep in mind that the cream cheese and butter must be at room temperature so they can blend easily.
In a bowl, mix the cream cheese and butter using a mixer on high speed. Add the cider and the powdered sugar in batches.
Spread over cooled cupcakes using a piping bag or simply with a spoon. Decorate with M&M’s. Refrigerate until the frosting is set. Enjoy! Full recipe and quantities below.
I love the fact that it’s the perfect fall recipe because of all the spices and apples combined. The applesauce inside the cupcakes provides not only a lot of flavors but moisture as well.
You can just feel them after they come out of the oven, so spongy. PLUS the aroma, while they bake, will carry on throughout the house.
I couldn’t resist so I took a big bite! They are so good. Please try them at home and let me know how they come out.
