thanks for the email wizgirl--and I will try this recipe too--do you have any bean cupcakes without chocolate--my daughter is alley to nickel and there is a ton of it in chocolate---feel bad for her as not many are allergic to eating nickel--just touching it--she is allergic to both--and loves chocolate--Oh wait I think there is nickel in beans too :(:(:(:(

Oh no :( :( :(! Maybe some beans are low in nickel content. If so, you could replace the chocolate with cinnamon and nutmeg.

Looks good! I love how you used marshmallows for the horns. Good for horns and they taste good.
