White Chocolate Pumpkin Cupcakes

IMG_2386

I have a little confession. I found a new favorite cupcake about a week ago…triple white chocolate….and I haven’t shared it with you yet. I know…I’m sorry, please can we still be friends? It’s not that I don’t want to share…I made them for a ladies night in at my house, and they were gone as fast as I could whip them up. So I’ll be making a second batch and sharing it with you, very soon. Promise.

…so this weekend I was making some treats with one of my favorite candy’s pumpkin Hershey kisses. I don’t think I even knew I liked pumpkin until I tried them a few years back, now I hunt them down the second I see pumpkin in the stores ;). If you haven’t had them they are a melt in your mouth mix of white chocolate and pumpkin. Which of course as I’m baking with them I realize…I could add one of Duncan Hines new pumpkin spice flavor creations in to that white chocolate icing and it just may create the same flavor combo as the Hershey kisses I love so much. So as soon I got a chance I whipped up some pumpkin cupcakes and mixed my white chocolate icing with a pumpkin spice flavor creation. I really like really love this combo. This will be a yearly treat for sure, and I’m pretty sure these will be making a Thanksgiving day appearance as well ;)

Step 5: Beat butter until soft, add it cream cheese and beat together until well blended.

Step 6: Add in 4 cups of powdered sugar.

Step 7: Add in 3-5 table spoons of milk. I use 3 because I like mine to be more stiff. The more milk you add the softer and smoother it will become.

Step 8: Mix in pumpkin spice flavor creation packet.

Once your cupcakes are nice and cool pipe a nice smooth swirl of yumminess on top of them and enjoy! I only use a round tip when piping with any cream cheese icing because it doesn’t hold up well to design tips. This icing even crusts just a small bit…so easy to work with!

Hope you love these are much as I do!
