If I had to choose a favorite season, I’m pretty sure it would be fall. I love when you get the first hints of a chill in the air, and when the leaves start to change colors. Pull the sweaters out of the closet and put some comfort foods on the menu and I’m a happy girl!
One ingredient that I flock to when the weather starts to cool down is pumpkin. Seriously – I’m one of those people you see in the checkout lane with little but cans of pumpkin in her cart, stocking up for the season. I love it in everything from pasta to bread to dessert. (And truth be told, I’ve been known to cook up a recipe with pumpkin even in the dead of summer, I like it so much!!)
But don’t think that pumpkin is just for pies on Thanksgiving day. There are so many ways to incorporate pumpkin into your recipes – especially dessert. These push it up pops are so tasty that the adults will want to eat them all, but they are so fun that the kids are going to flock to them!
For the cupcakes, you will need a Betty Crocker® SuperMoist® spice cake mix, a can of pumpkin, eggs, water and oil.
While the cupcakes are cooling, make the whipped cream filling. You will need whipping cream, brown sugar, and toffee pieces.
