Halloween chocolate cupcakes

Wishing you a Spooktacular Halloween!

Halloween has always been such a cherished celebration in our family. The perfect excuse to dress up and load up on sweet treats. I sure miss those days when they gave us cupcakes while trick or treating. I have carefully chosen two of my favorites rolled into one to share with you. I hope you enjoy making them and treating yourself to some chocolatey goodness.

Happy Halloween and God Bless you all,
