This precious pumpkin cupcake recipe is an autumnally appropriate treat chocolate lovers can enjoy all fall long. Created by Melanie of Garnish & Glaze and featured on the blog Oh Sweet Basil, the chocolate-covered pumpkin cupcakes are indecisive by nature as they have not just one, but two kinds of frosting. The desserts are topped with a rich chocolate ganache as well as a cinnamon cream cheese icing.

The simple chocolate ganache consists only of semi-sweet chocolate and whipping cream. The seasonally inspired frosting is made out of cream cheese, butter, vanilla, cinnamon, nutmeg, salt and powdered sugar. The pumpkin cupcake recipe also calls for ingredients including pumpkin spice, pumpkin puree, more vanilla and brown sugar.
