Happy Halloween!!!

Halloween is one of my favorite holidays of the year, and in celebration, today’s cupcake is a Chocolate Pumpkin Ale with Pumpkin Buttercream frosting! I was a bit pressed for time this year, as we’re in the midst of a bunch of home renovations, but I managed to whip up this batch on one side of the kitchen while paint was drying on the wall on the other side!!

I started with my recipe for Chocolate Stout Cupcakes (great for St. Patty’s Day) and gave it an autumn twist. I substituted the stout with Post Road Pumpkin Ale from Brooklyn Brewery, and added in a little pumpkin pie spice.

The buttercream is made with organic pumpkin puree, in addition to ground cinnamon and ginger.

The cupcakes are topped with orange sugar, green sprinkles, and a mini sugar pumpkin!

Happy Halloween!!
