Snickers Cupcakes

The combination of chocolate, caramel and peanuts is irresistible on it’s own, but when CC user rockandrose combined these into a cupcake she took it to the next level.

When we saw these amazing cupcakes we just had to look for recipes to make them for ourselves. Check out some recipes for chocolate cupcakes, peanut butter frosting  and caramel sauce so you can make these too.


Chocolate Cake nadia0411

1 1/2 cups (3 sticks) unsalted butter, plus more for pan
1 1/4 cups unsweetened Dutch-process cocoa powder
1 1/4 cups hot water
3 cups all-purpose flour
1 1/4 teaspoons coarse salt
1 teaspoon baking powder
1 teaspoon baking soda
2 1/4 cups granulated sugar
4 large eggs
1 tablespoon plus 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
1 cup sour cream

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Butter two 8-by-2-inch round cake pans, line bottoms with parchment paper, and butter paper. Whisk together cocoa powder and hot water until smooth. Sift together flour, salt, baking powder, and baking soda. Melt butter and sugar in saucepan over medium-low heat. Remove from heat, and transfer to a mixer. Beat on medium-low speed until cooled, 4 to 5 minutes. Add eggs, one at a time, beating after each addition. Beat in vanilla and cocoa-powder mixture. Reduce speed to low. Add flour mixture in two batches, alternating with the sour cream and beginning and ending with the flour. Beat until just combined. Divide batter between pans, and bake until a cake tester inserted into centers comes out clean.

Peanut Butter Buttercream Frosting by NextGreatBaker

3 3/4 cups + 1/2 cup powdered sugar
1 tsp. vanilla
3/4 cup creamy peanut butter
1/4 cup milk, divided
2 sticks unsalted butter, softened

Start by beating butter, mixing in 3 3/4 cups powdered sugar, vanilla and half of the milk. Then slowly mix in peanut butter. Frosting should become super thick, if not, add more peanut butter. but don’t go overboard! Once the mixture is thick with the peanut butter add in remaining milk  to give the whole thing a wet effect. (Should have the texture of ice cream after being stirred lol!) Make sure it isn’t soupy though. Then add in more powdered sugar, about 1/2 cup. (You may need to add more than that.) Should be fluffy and have a strong peanut butter taste.

Thick Caramel Sauce by JodieF

1 cup butter (do not substitute)
2 cups packed brown sugar
1 cup light corn syrup
1 can sweetened condensed milk
2 tablespoons whipping cream
2 teaspoons vanilla
1 teaspoon salt

In a heavy saucepan, bring butter, brown sugar, corn syrup and sweetened condensed milk to a boil over medium heat, stirring. Carefully stir in whipping cream. Attach a candy thermometer to your pan. Continue to stir until the caramel reaches 238 degrees, or the soft ball stage. Remove from heat and add vanilla and salt.
