Pumpkin, Nutella Cupcakes with Cream Cheese Frosting

Well it is now the middle of October, and what more can we blog about, but more pumpkin. You really need to take advantage of all this pumpkin! I mean, you can buy pie pumpkins at your local supermarket for a really great price. You could always do what I plan on doing and just buy as many as you can, to make as much puree as you can fit in your freezer, to freeze for the entire year =). It sure beats canned pumpkin. Well this recipe is inspired by a recipe I found online: pumpkin, cheesecake bites. Well, Zach isn’t a huge fan of cheesecake (I know I know, it’s weird), so I wanted to make a “pumpkiny” dessert that didn’t involved a lot of cream cheese. I decided to make your standard pumpkin cupcake, with a nutella spread and a homemade cream cheese icing. This recipe is easy, fun, and so fall! I hope you enjoy it!
