Pumpkin cupcakes make the perfect treat, and with Thanksgiving and Christmas around the corner, this is a recipe that you are going to want to try and share. I have made this recipe using a chocolate cake mix and a golden vanilla cake mix and, honestly, you can’t go wrong either way! Both attempts came out equally delicious! The cupcakes without the frosting are a treat on their own, but the frosting brings out the pumpkin flavor and adds some extra sweetness. These pumpkin cupcakes are extremely easy to make and always get tons of compliments! Want to add some more punch to every bite? Pair a cupcake with my Homemade Pumpkin Spice Latte.
