Snickers cupcakes

28 Nov


So for my daughter’s birthday this year she asked for this particular cupcake. I really had a lot of fun making them. It was only the second time I actually stuffed anything inside of a cupcake. Quite a unique experience and oh so worth it. Snickers is a great candy bar for those of you who love caramel and peanuts. Which I do! Enjoy!

4 oz of cream cheese at room temperature

1/4 cup of caramel topping, more if you would like to drizzle
1/2 to 1 cup of milk

3. Divide mix into prepared muffin tins.

   Try not to insert into the snickers bar.
6. Cool completely.

For the icing:

1.Cream together butter and cream cheese. 
2. Slowly add powdered sugar. 
3. Add caramel and vanilla. 
4. Add milk until you reach the right consistency for piping or spreading. 
5. Taste. If you would like a more intense caramel flavoring add more. 
6. Pipe the cooled cupcakes with frosting 
7. Enjoy! These may be garnished with more snickers and caramel. 

A couple of notes:
I added two snickers because the first time I made these with one, 
I did not get a strong snickers flavor.
I wanted it to be very prominent.So I added another. 
Also we in our house do not like an overly sweet frosting. 
So I added the cream cheese. 
This can be omitted and increase your butter and powdered sugar.
