Chocolate Cupcakes with Vanilla Cream Cheese FrostingInstant coffee granules enhance these cupcakes' already rich chocolatey flavor. Top with a vanilla cream cheese frosting and add your favorite Halloween-inspired toppings, like licorice, jelly beans, or even plastic cake toppers (like the black cat shown here).
