Halloween Pumpkin Spiced Applesauce Spider Cupcakes
Halloween Pumpkin Spiced Applesauce Spider Cupcakes are a fun, seasonal dessert that your kids will not only have fun making, but eating too. The secret to the flavor in the cupcakes comes from the applesauce.
There is only one season I look forward to as much as Christmas and that is fall. What’s not to love? The cooler weather (I live in the Arizona desert, you understand) pumpkins, Halloween and all of the fall produce, in particular the apples.
With Halloween, applesauce and pumpkins on my mind, all of these were factors that inspired me to come up with these cupcakes. Applesauce is a delicious and seasonal way to add moisture and natural sweetness to these cupcakes.
Just as an aside, as you may need to fend off your neighbors, my kitchen smelled like pumpkin pie when the cupcakes were baking.
The frosting for the cupcakes is cream cheese with a little pumpkin pie spice to mirror the pumpkin spice in the applesauce and drive home the pumpkin/fall feeling.
I had a lot of fun with these cupcakes. I have many Halloween-themed recipes on my website from skulls to scorpions and now spiders.
