chocolate gingerbread cupcakesI baked these Chocolate Gingerbread Cupcakes for a little holiday kids party; They were a hit! Super super easy and soooooo delish!

Take your favorite Chocolate cake recipe and add:

1/2 cup of roasted Squash (yes, that is the secret) I used acorn squash

1/4 tsp of ground gloves

1/4 tsp salt

1 tsp of ground cinnamon

1/2 tsp of ground ginger

I hand mix everything but you can use your beater on low speed till combined and creamy.

Oven at 350C aprox. 18-20mintues

Butter Cream Frosting

In a bowl: 2 cups Icing Sugar, 5-6 tbsp of milk(or more but not too thin), 1 stick of butter at room temp. Mix with hand mixer on low or use a wooden spoon.

Sprinkle with some sparkly colored sugar crystals or other candy of choice
