Sweet Sunday: Snickers Cupcakes!

20 July 2014

I don't know if these are necessarily a very summery recipe, however I was craving some Snickers Cupcakes so here they are! What makes these special is their yummy peanut filling and brown sugar frosting. Emilia loved the frosting but we quickly discovered that she's not a fan of peanuts! (She spat them all out while eating the Snickers on top...ha ha ha!)

To make the filling you will need:

6 oz cream cheese, softened
2 tablespoons icing sugar
1 egg
2 and 1/2 Snickers bars, chopped up

To make the cupcakes you will need:

1 and 1/2 cups plain flour
1 cup granulated sugar
1/3 cup unsweetened cocoa
1 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
1 cup buttermilk
1/3 cup vegetable oil
1 tsp vanilla extract

Emilia wasn't in the best of moods to film a video today...it was very hot and I don't think she had much interest in being cooped up inside (I don't blame her!). All she wanted to do was sneak little bits of cupcake batter into her mouth when I wasn't looking!

To make the brown sugar frosting you will need:

1/3 cup brown sugar
1/3 cup butter
3 tbsp milk
1 1/2 cups powdered sugar
1 1/2 Snickers bars, chopped up to garnish

This recipe bakes 18 cupcakes! To watch the video on how I made them, please see below:
