"Fall themed cupcakes are fun for multiple occasions–weddings, birthdays, Thanksgiving–but with The Nut Job 2: Nutty By Nature coming out this weekend, I can't think of a better reason for acorn cupcakes. These easy chocolate cupcakes are decadent and adorable. I love movie themed desserts. They're so much fun for viewing parties and kids that like to get into character. This recipe is fairly easy and can be altered to use nut butter for those of us that love peanut-butter cup inspired treats. Just swap the butterscotch chips with peanut butter or any nut butter of your choice."
