We all know that vanilla and chocolate are a match made in sugary goodness heaven. It really is pretty hard to beat that classic combination. And so these Easy Chocolate Chip Cupcakes are sure to be a total winner. They’re made from my favourite vanilla cupcake recipe – which is honestly the easiest yummiest thing ever, with a sprinkling of chocolate chips through the mixture, topped with a basic vanilla buttercream… and more chocolate chips (of course).
Fall flavors are taking over, but I’m trying not to go too wild with just pumpkin and pumpkin spice. I whipped up this variation on traditional hummus with a little back-kick of sweetness from butternut squash. The trick is that you actually can totally sub in pumpkin or sweet potato since you’ll get a really similar taste and consistency with any of them. But I chose the squash this time around, and I did not regret it.
