Candy Corn Peanut Butter Potato Chip Cookies

Okay, these don’t actually have any real candy corn in them but they do have those mini candy corn creme bars Hershey has. Which are, by the way, delicious. The ingredients in these cookies may not seem to go together but they really, really do. Candy corn is known to go with salted peanuts and I think candy corn is perfect with potato chips so they are perfect! Also, these cookies are soft, chewy, and thick (i.e. PERFECTION)

Chocolate Cupcakes with Cinnamon Cream Cheese Frosting

So, I’ve been searching for the best chocolate cupcake recipe and I’m pretty sure that I’ve finally found the one. It’s “The Ultimate Chocolate Cupcakes” by Brown Eyed Baker. That’s the recipe for the cupcakes I used.  The frosting is absolutely delicious! Creamy, tangy, warm and cinnamon-y; the perfect compliment to the chocolate cupcakes.
