These tropical cupcakes are made with coconut, orange zest, and a whole lot of chocolate. While they sound like a summery treat, the color combo is perfect for Halloween! These cupcakes will make a flavorful, subtle accent to your holiday dessert table.
Orange Cupcakes with Cream Cheese
These orange cupcakes are topped with zesty orange frosting, which will perfectly match your color scheme this Halloween season.
Pumpkin SCREAM Cheese Cupcakes
What is more perfect for Halloween than a pumpkin-flavored cupcake? The pumpkin purée (which has a similar consistency to applesauce) is actually the perfect ingredient to use as a substitute for oils and fats in baking. The end result is an incredibly moist cupcake that has the fiber and health of pumpkin without the fat and calories of oil. With such a healthy cream cheese cupcake, this recipe allows for a slight splurge on the frosting. To make it even more Halloween-friendly, add a couple drops of orange food dye and top with a green stem candy to make it look like a little pumpkin!
