Cinnamon Churro Cupcakes with Chocolate Frosting

Pin It
Here are the other cupcakes I made for my girl's night in.
The light cinnamon flavor of the cake combined with the chocolate frosting is definitely a winner.
I cheated and topped mine with Churro's from Costco :)

Make pom pom bunting for extra cuteness :)

Bake for 18-20 minutes or until done.
Cool completely before frosting.
