Pumpkin Surprise Cupcakes

After oooh’ing & aaahhh’ing over these cupcakes on Nicci & Suzanne‘s blogs, I knew I had to make them & soon. My parents’ visit & our big tailgate proved to be the perfect excuse.

Y’all know I love anything sweet & the fact that they’re just three or four ingredients makes them all the better.

Pumpkin Surprise Cupcakes

Ingredients

1 can Libby’s pumpkin
1 box white cake mix
1/4 tsp pumpkin pie spice
Mini candy of your choice~ I used Snickers, 3 Musketeers & Milky Way {the surprise}

Mix the pumpkin, cake mix & spice until combined. Line cupcake/muffin pans with liners or grease well. I made 18 smaller cupcakes, but you could easily make 12 bigger ones.

Easy, yummy & kinda healthy.

Pour the batter about half way in the cups. Top with your choice of mini candy bar. Or don’t & fill all the way {husband wasn’t sure about the “surprise” part, so I left six plain}. Fill the ones with chocolate goodness the rest of the way full. Be sure that the candy is completely covered. I had a few that weren’t & those weren’t much of a surprise.

Bake on 350 for 25 minutes or just until they begin to brown on top. Let cool then enjoy! We had them for dessert, breakfast & snacks, & they were so yummy for all three.

Pumpkin cupcake for breakfast, yes please!

    If you want to skip a step, you could use spice cake instead of white cake and leave out the pumpkin pie spices. I haven’t tried it with a candy bar, but that will be my next try! I also make them into cookies :)
