I think that Sugar Skulls are just beautiful and I love the meaning and traditions behind the Day of the Dead. These Day of the Dead Mexican Chocolate Cupcakes are made with Mexican chocolate and they’re decorated with bright colored sprinkles and sweet little sugar skull candies.
I love the sugar skulls and the super colorful sprinkles! My son is in love with the movie “Coco” so I may have to make these! – Angie
Day of the Dead Mexican Chocolate Cupcakes
Día de los Muertos or “Day of the Dead” – what exactly is this holiday? Since the movie Coco came out, I think it helped people understand that it is not the Mexican version of Halloween. It is a time to remember friends and family who have passed on. In Mexico, people go to the cemeteries to give the departed offerings of their favorite things. They’ll often leave food and drinks, candles, photos and little trinkets. It sounds a bit morbid, but it’s quite the opposite. It’s a celebration of life and it’s full of color, which is why I wanted to share these Day of the Dead cupcakes with you.
