Chocolate Rum Cupcakes

Happy Halloween weekend!

In spirit of Halloween and for a work potluck tomorrow, I made these chocolatey cupcakes. They’re filled with a light chocolate mousse and glazed with a dark chocolate rum ganache. I also added a bit of Captain Morgan spiced rum to the cupcake batter, but the rum flavor is subtle since I was experimenting and only added a small amount.  Next time I’ll know to add a bit more rum for a kick.

To make these cupcakes more playful, I made these little ghosts as toppers (all edible!).  I hope they’re a hit tomorrow at work!

Happy Halloween and be safe!
