I finished making these cupcakes with snickers inside. And frosted and decorated them with a bit of work and time.
I stood back and looked at these special desserts. The Lionel Richie song popped into my head. It goes something like; “Hello? Is it me you’re looking for?”
Why yes, I thought. You beautiful concoction of chocolate, caramel, peanut butter, and snickers! You are exactly what I have been looking for… and craving.
These are WICKED GOOD CUPCAKES!
If you have been keeping up with my cupcake posts you will know that I am obsessed with cupcakes. Made from scratch cupcakes. What an adventure in science and art. And a bit of architecture.
I drew out my plans for this homemade snickers cupcake recipe. Yes I’m a nerd! I own that. I actually stenciled them out. I had a vision you see.
Rest assured. You don’t have to be a nerd OR an architect to create these beauties. Just follow the steps in the recipe. These were easy to make!
I woke up at 6:30 this lovely Friday morning and got to baking. A couple of hours and a pot of coffee later I had my beautiful cupcakes.
These snickers cupcakes were quickly eaten up by everyone that came to visit. If you are looking for a show stopper of a cupcake recipe I recommend pulling out this impressive little number.
These would be FANTASTIC party treats!
Decadent Snickers Cupcakes Recipe:
The chocolate cupcakes are the easiest part of this recipe. And they are moist and SO delicious. This is my ‘go to’ chocolate cupcake recipe. Always a win here!
The Frosting is not a snickers frosting or a snickers icing.
I chose a peanut butter buttercream to add yet one more layer of flavor to the mix. And I didn’t want to overdo the Snickers. These candy bar cupcakes are already filled and topped with snickers.
The Peanut butter frosting made more sense to me. The result? We Loved it. Chose a snickers icing if you like it better.
I used chocolate sauce and salted caramel sauce to drizzle over the cupcake after frosting. That was a VERY good idea. The result of the chocolate, caramel, and peanut butter with the candy filled chocolate cupcake? Heaven. PURE Heaven!
The Swirl tip I used was the Wilton 2D. Look at the rose buttercream video to give you an idea how to go about creating the swirl for these cupcakes.
- fill a disposable piping bag with chocolate sauce, cut the very tip of the end off and fill with sauce. Drizzle in a diagonal line across the frosting, as desired.
- Repeat the same steps for the caramel sauce.
