Chocolate Pumpkin Cupcakes with Nutella Buttercream Frosting

Pumpkin, pumpkin, pumpkin!  It's the flavor of the season and I truly do love baking with it.  Using pumpkin puree adds extra moisture to your baked good and makes everything a little more tender.  If you've ever made my Pumpkin Bread, you'll totally agree!

I also love the combination of pumpkin and chocolate together and try to pair them up together as often as I can.  That's one reason I created these Chocolate Pumpkin Cupcakes with Nutella Buttercream Frosting.

Yes.  There's Nutella in the frosting and I wish I could spread it on everything!

These cupcakes are the perfect balance of both pumpkin and chocolate flavors.  Like I mentioned before, the pumpkin puree help make these super moist and the frosting is incredibly creamy and chocolatey!
