“Be thankful,” My friend Charley likes to say this on Thanksgiving Day to everyone. Charley’s reminder is that everyday is a day we can live with gratitude in our hearts.
Thanks for stopping by my blog.
Have a peaceful day wherever you may find your self.
♥️ Chocolate Pumpkin Cup Cakes Recipe Rewind from October 2014 for the full post. This post was for Halloween. But I think they are great treat for Autumn.
I was asked to bring a pumpkin bar dessert for an upcoming Halloween neighborhood street party. “There will be no desserts. ” said my friend. oh gosh almighty when I looked up pumpkin bars the pics (hundreds of them) didn’t inspire.
-Soooo I fretted about baking for people I don’t know and gave myself the option of punting – bring store-bought baked goods. (Okay, it’s a fail-safe back-up plan.)
However, as fate would have it, I found a recipe in Country Living Magazine that I skimmed through nervously at the insurance estimate place for my car. (Don’t ask.) How to turn an unfortunate circumstance into a better day? Find an inspirational recipe. From Country Living Magazine online here is the Chocolate Pumpkin Witch Cupcakes recipe link. I followed the steps to the letter. Yesterday I had two taste testers who gave it the thumbs up! This was a practice run before the big event on Halloween, Feast of All Hallows, Samhain (for any neo-pagans).

These Chocolate Pumpkin cupcakes are moist, rich, and the pumpkin is not too much. Everything worked. This recipe makes a fluffy batter. They are totally cute when finished with witches hat and clever details. It’s a winner and good enough to eat without frosting.
Happy Thanksgiving! We already had ours in October–a shame I hadn’t seen this recipe then!
Awwww. It’s yummy any time. I’m thinking of making them again!
Happy Thanksgiving. Thanks for the recipe.
Hey! Thanks! Peggy, how are you doing these days?
All good here. It’s supposed to be summer, but we’ve had 3 inches of rain in the last three days and the temperature today is 61°F.
That doesn’t sound like summer! Hope weather improves. We have had drought here.
Oh ugh. We had drought for almost a decade. Australia’s climate is harsh.
Yes, planetary changes are tough these days!
