Who knows where my aversion stemmed from, but for some reason, I have always associated figs with old lady food, and have successfully kept myself at a respectable distance from them. So when Dave asked me to make some kind of fig bar, I was less than enthusiastic… Figs??? Eww!!!
Pumpkin pie, yay or nay?… I’ve noticed that there are two distinct camps. Does anyone sit on the fence on this one?… I, myself, stand firmly in camp “no, thank you”. Which is funny, because there are plenty of pumpkin foods that I love, like muffins, these cookies, and it’s so amazing in pasta. And now you can add this ice cream to the list too.
I was a little concerned that it might be too soon for a Halloween post, but then decided that it’s never too soon for chocolate cupcakes! Right? Besides, these cupcakes are so pretty (and ridiculously easy), I couldn’t wait to share them with you!
Are you ready for the most frightful night of the year? Halloween’s almost here! If you’re still wondering what to serve your scary party guests might I suggest my Mummy Cupcakes?
When I was a kid, my favourite candy to find in my trick-or-treat bag was chocolate covered marshmallows, the one’s that were shaped like ghosts or pumpkins. I still love that combination, which is why I can not believe that I didn’t come up with these Candy Coated Marshmallows sooner!
