Apple & Chocolate Spiced Cupcakes With Cider Frosting – Great Fall Recipe
Apples are in season (finally!) and if you live up North I can just imagine the beautiful Apple Orchards in full bloom. Here in Miami, unfortunately we can’t fully experience the cool weather, apple orchards and pumpkin patches that other states do. Luckily we can create great fall recipes to simulate the mood like this delicious Apple & Chocolate Spiced Cupcakes With Cider Frosting made with Mott’s Applesauce, Mott’s Apple Juice and M&M’s. 3 Yummy favorites all wrapped up in a little creamy cupcake.
I think this recipe came in just in the nick of time before Rosh Hashana since this celebration requires apples and a little sweetness to start the year just right. This week I headed off to my local Walmart and found the new M&M’s Candy Apple flavor available exclusive for Walmart and the specially marked M&M’s along with Mott’s Items.
They taste delicious. I opened the bag to take try them out and my girls went on the attack. Guess I have to buy a few more bags before winter arrives.
The cake part is made with ground M&M’s, Cake Mix Spice Flavor, eggs, Mott’s Apple Sauce, Mott’s Apple Juice and water. To make your cupcakes simply combine dry ingredients and then incorporate wet ingredients. Place batter into cupcake lined molds and bake for 15-17 minutes. When the cupcakes are ready simply place is cooling rack and cool completely.
The delicious frosting is so easy to make as well. Ingredients: cream cheese, butter, Mott’s Apple Juice or Cider and Powdered sugar. Keep in mind that the cream cheese and butter must be at room temperature so they can blend easily.
In a bowl, mix the cream cheese and butter using a mixer on high speed. Add the cider and the powdered sugar in batches. Spread over cooled cupcakes using a piping bag or simply with a spoon. Decorate with M&M’s. Refrigerate until the frosting is set. Enjoy!. Full recipe and quantities below.
I love the fact that it’s the perfect fall recipe because of all the spices and apples combined. The applesauce inside the cupcakes provide not only a lot of flavor but moisture as well. You can just feel them after they come out of the oven, so spongy. PLUS the aroma while they bake will carry on throughout the house.

I know this article is not deal related but I wanted to share these tips that used to work for me!
I remember when my oldest girl was in diapers. She had sensitive skin so developing rashes was very easily. Diaper rashes can be very painful for baby. Luckily there’s a few tricks that can help cure and ease your child discomfort.
Here’s a few tips for curing diaper rash:
-Fill a tub halfway with lukewarm water, add a couple of scoops of Oatmeal and let your baby soak in there for about 15-20 minutes. The water will help with the pain and the oatmeal is good for irritated skin. Repeat this process twice a day (if you can)
-Make chamomile tea and let it cool. Dip cotton balls into the cooled tea and place it on your baby’s irritated area. I used to lie my little girl into the changing table and applied the cotton balls. I would distract her by singing songs and toys. Leave the tea on for about 10- 15 minutes. Chamomile is great for inflamed dry skin.
- When changing your baby’s diaper DO NOT USE WIPES. It will make the diaper rash worse and it will be very painful for him/her. To clean his/her area just use a squirt bottle filled with lukewarm water and make sure the area is completely clean. With boys it is easier doing this step.
-After you clean him/her up. Dry their area gently with a cloth or towel and make sure the area is completely dry before applying the diaper rash cream (be generous when applying cream).
-If you can, leave your baby without a diaper for a while so his little bum can breathe. I personally couldn’t do this step because my daughter would pee all over!
If you follow these steps your baby’s diaper rash will be cured in no time!.
