Snickers Cupcakes

Snickers Cupcakes, Inside

Baked some yummy snickers cupcakes for Angie’s birthday. I thought long and hard about how i wanted to do this. I vacillated between a chocolate cake, with caramel frosting, a chocolate peanut butter swirl cake, vanilla frosting, chocolate-vanilla swirl cake, yellow cake, chocolate frosting, peanut butter frosting. The combinations were endless. I ended up baking a white cake with a chocolate peanut butter buttercream frosting, with sliced up snickers on the inside and outside. Snickers is Angie’s favorite candy bar – at least a i think so – she seems to eat a king size one at work almost everyday! (High metabolism this girl).

Cut up the mini snickersFrost it with a ziplog baggie

Cutting up the snickers. Helps to stick them in the fridge so they aren’t as sticky. Frosting the cupcakes using a ziploc bag, it works perfect, just cut a hole at the edge and throw the bag away when done. The frosting was originally chocolate, but i added in some chunky peanut butter to emulate more of the snickers taste.

The snickers on the inside sunk to the bottom as expected, but it was still a yummy surprise. Two thumbs up from everyone who was lucky enough to taste one!
