“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.
