How in the world is it almost the middle of October? That means Halloween is only a couple of weeks away. Are you ready?
We sure aren’t, unless you consider all the fun baking and treats we have made.
After making loads of treats for the family, momma wanted something all her own. Introducing these fun, but totally adult treats.
Chocolate Pumpkin Rum Cupcakes with a cute little graveyard scene.
It’s true, Halloween is sort of all about children. And candy, lots and lots of candy. But why can’t mom and dad enjoy a simple treat too?
Halloween doesn’t have to be just for the kids.
On Halloween, we usually sit outside with our neighbors and hand out candy together. These Chocolate Pumpkin Rum Cupcakes are perfect for the adults to enjoy while the kiddo’s are having fun.
Decorate them for Halloween, or leave them plain. Your choice. We wanted to get into the spirit, so we used this adorable Wilton Graveyard Cupcake Decorating Kit to decorate our Chocolate Pumpkin Rum Cupcakes.
They are always a huge hit, decorated or not – so have some fun on Halloween with your adult friends and make these Boozy Chocolate Pumpkin Rum Cupcakes.
If you can’t find Pumpkin Rum, you could potentially just use regular rum and use some (about a tablespoon or so) pumpkin pie spice in the dry ingredients and probably get something slightly similar.
We have not tried that though, so proceed with caution. 😉
As I sit writing this post, we are just over two weeks out from Halloween. Our weather is just doing a little changing, getting cooler and leaves are definitely changing.
I am enjoying one of these delicious Boozy Chocolate Pumpkin Rum Cupcakes with my coffee and listening to silence before the household awakes for the day.
A special treat for mom. Who said I couldn’t have dessert for breakfast?
