Recipe Tuesday on a Wednesday: Pumpkin and Cream Cheese Cupcakes

Okay these are probably one of the best pumpkin recipes I have ever tried and probably the easiest. They are to die for. I've seen the recipe circulating around pinterest, but the frosting is something I added. Pinterest just suggests powdered sugar on top, but truly it NEEDS the cream cheese frosting. Plus the cupcakes are just TWO ingredients. You can't really mess that up...

What You Need:
One Box of Yellow Cake Mix
One Can of Pumpkin (the regular size can, not the jumbo one!)
Cream Cheese Frosting
4 oz Unsalted Butter
4 oz Cream Cheese
2 Cups Powdered Sugar
1 tsp. Vanilla Extract

Mix the two ingredients for the cupcakes together. It'll be super thick batter. Don't worry about it. Then plop into the cupcake liners (keep in mind that the shape the batter is, is the shape that they'll turn out to be). Bake for 20-25 minutes at 350.

For the cream cheese frosting, mix the ingredients all together. Wait till the cupcakes are done and cooled, then frost those suckers and be prepared to be amazed!! :)

Enjoy the world's best/easiest pumpkin cupcake/muffin thing recipe!!
