I bought a spice cake mix to use for this recipe, but I had no luck finding those pumpkin spice hershey kisses. So, I instead found a quick and easy recipe for pumpkin spice cupcakes, iced with store bought cream cheese frosting; I made these for a coworker’s birthday, and they were super tasty. I definitely recommend them for an easy fall pumpkin dessert.
