Pumpkin Spice Cupcakes

These are super moist cupcakes! They are frosted with cream cheese frosting that is flavoured with real maple syrup and topped with chopped Skor bars! I found this recipe in Ina Garten's "Foolproof" cookbook. The first time I made this recipe I found there was so much frosting leftover, so I doubled the cupcake recipe and then there was the perfect ratio of frosting to cupcake.
