Frosted pumpkin spice cupcakes

Craving pumpkin after today’s big Sunday family dinner?  We were too so we whipped up a quick batch of mini-cupcakes and topped them with the new Cool Whip Frosting [sprinkled with pumpkin pie spice] and added a sweet pumpkin marshmallow.  Mmmm!  Take a peek at our pumpkin pie spice cupcakes:

Each Sunday we splurge on dessert and this weeks after-dinner-treat did not disappoint! Gotta love Walmart, our one-stop-shop to pick up everything we needed to make this delicious little number.  We snagged cake mix, pumpkin mallows, pumpkin pie spice and the new Cool Whip Frosting in the yumm-o cream cheese flavor, [also in chocolate & vanilla.]  And yes, Kelli is a spaz- she was psyched about pumpkin pie spice meets cream cheese frosting ;)

You guys, this is the easiest dessert!  From start to finish you’ll have a beautiful batch of mini-cupcakes that took like they took a lot longer to make.  Topping it off with #CoolWhipFrosting makes a simple recipe look simply gourmet:
