Unbelievably delicious Snickers Cupcakes

Friday was my roommate’s birthday. Ashley turned 23! Gosh, we’re old, haha.

Ashley’s favorite candy bars are Snickers. I have no idea how she remains so tiny when she loves candy and sweets so much. I wish I could be like that.

Naturally, I wanted to cater to Ashley’s preferences so my choice for her birthday dessert were Snickers Cupcakes. Combining the deliciousness of Snickers candy bars in a cupcake form to make the recipe a little more festive. I knew she would enjoy the gesture. And she did indeed. These gourmet cupcakes were delicious and probably one of the best homemade cupcakes I have made yet.

Snickers Cupcakes - taste just like the candy bar!

These cupcakes literally taste like Snickers candy bar… except better, because they are cupcakes after all!

The filling is delicious – chopped up Snickers coated in caramel sauce.

The frosting is a caramel frosting. Mine turned out a little more drippy than I would have liked because I added some almond milk in there and it ended up being too much but that’s alright because it wasn’t too drippy and the flavor was still all there.

Then we can’t forget about the decorative tip – Placing a chopped mini Snickers on top of this beautiful dessert to top the sugar coma off. Yes. This cupcake is far from healthy. There is nothing healthy about it.. well at least the cake part of the cupcake is vegan.

Enjoy the sugar coma :)

PS. Sorry if the photos are a little oddly colored, these photos were taken very quickly and around midnight when I finally finished baking them. It was my first time using a daylight-temp continuous light for food photography so I’m not super experienced with food photography at night just yet. I’ll get there!

Tips: This recipe is for 5 cupcakes! You can double if you want to make more!

The recipe for the frosting yields a lot more than just for 5 cupcakes though, you could probably safely decorate up to 10 cupcakes with it, if you went light on the frosting. I don’t know how that works for my recipes. Things always end up weirdly haha. I recommend you NOT to make a smaller amount of caramel sauce though.

    Oh my gosh these look AMAZING! I love how they’re the perfect balance of healthy and naughty. Snickers is one of my favorite candy bars (I used to eat one a few times a week after lunch in high school…insane), so this is a recipe I definitely bookmarked :)
