This is one of my favorite times of year! I love the cool evening air and the leaves changing colors! Of course, it is also the time of year when fall colors hit the candy on the shelves too!
Of course fall colored candy inspires fall colored cupcakes!
These cupcakes are just too easy to make! There isn't even frosting on them!
Start with your favorite chocolate cupcakes. I used the Allergen-Free/Vegan Chocolate Cupcake Recipe from the Martha Stewart Cupcakes Book, but any cupcake will do! Instead of frosting, I melted up some Chocolate Candiquik. I block of Chocolate Candiquik is needed per 6 cupcakes. Spoon some of the chocolate on top of the cupcake, it is less messy than dipping. While the chocolate is still wet, hand place the M&M's on the cupcake!
(This method works best if your cupcakes are not totally filling the liner, that way there is room for drips and to hold up the M&M'S while the chocolate sets.)
I used Fall Peanut Butter M&M'S! Mmmmmmm!
