Fun fall cupcakes filled with pumpkin, spices and coffee! Pumpkin Spice Latte Cupcakes are the perfect fall treat!
As much time as I spend on the internet because of this job of mine I see new products that are coming out all the time. There are so many times that I see something and I say, I just have to try that!
That is how I felt when I saw these M&M’S® Pumpkin Spice Latte! My first question was, where can I find these? I must try them! Well you can find them exclusively at Target!
Who doesn’t love to go to Target and hit up that dollar section while you are there? I know I do! I picked up a pretty orange and white bowl, some festive sprinkles and burlap!
I am full into fall baking right now and I thought why not make some cake! Well my cake did not turn out as planned because it always sticks to the pan! I mean always my friends. I can grease, I can flour and it just doesn’t want to come out.
So I decided to do cupcakes. My kids were happy because they love cupcakes, especially when there are M&M’S involved! By the way you can get a Cartwheel offer right now for these M&M’S® Pumpkin Spice Latte and Dunkin’ Donuts® Pumpkin Spice Coffee.
For this particular cupcake I decided to add some Dunkin’ Donuts® Pumpkin Spice Coffee to my Pillsbury® Perfectly Pumpkin Cake Mix! And let me just tell you what a perfect mix it was!
You can smell the spices as soon as you open the package and see the pretty pumpkin color when you start to mix your ingredients together! Everything else is pretty standard in making these cupcakes. Add some eggs, oil and water and don’t forget the coffee! ENJOY!

Now don’t be fooled if you head to Target and you can’t find the cake mix. In my store I found the mix in the seasonal department. The M&M’S were front and center so it made it easy to see and the coffee was well of course, on the coffee aisle! Tell me, what kind of cake would you like to make?
