1. Hot Cocoa Cupcakes
Don’t even try to eat one of these without a hot mug of cocoa on the side! The signature taste of cocoa makes these hot cocoa cupcakes distinctively chocolatey. The marshmallows and peppermints add to this seasonal treat, and who doesn’t love homemade whipped cream frosting? Use your own mixture to develop a slightly stiff, creamy whipped topping for these desserts and watch them fly off the shelves.
2. Samoas Cupcakes
If you always answer the door when the Girl Scouts come knocking for your seasonal indulgence in Samoas, you’ll love this cupcake recipe. From the moist vanilla center to the toasted coconut and caramel drizzle on top, you’ll be trying not to eat the whole dozen at once!
3. Champagne Cupcakes
Celebrate the new year in style by biting into a scrumptious champagne cupcake! With a champagne reduction and a champagne buttercream frosting, you’ll begin to realize that eating your favorite celebratory drink is even better than drinking it!
4. Apple Cinnamon Roll Cupcakes
It’s the time of year when apple cinnamon recipes come out in full force, but this isn’t your run-of-the-mill option.

It’s sure to be a go-to choice for your customers, especially this time of year!
