Hi friends! It’s Jess from Sweetest Menu! Boy do I have a treat for you. These Snickers Cupcakes are every peanut butter lovers dream. There’s chocolate, there’s frosting and, of course, there’s Snickers!
When I first went to New York a few years ago, I was so taken by all the amazing desserts on offer. I remember eating my first American cupcake at Magnolia Bakery. After much deliberation, I chose a chocolate cupcake with chocolate frosting. I loved it and decided we had to go back again before we left. After all, being from Australia, we had travelled over 20 hours to get there. The next time we went, I ordered a slice of their Snickers Icebox Pie. I was in heaven! These gorgeous Snickers Chocolate Peanut Butter Cupcakes are sort of a combination of those two treats!
I love cupcakes. And if there is one food craze that is still going strong years after its first wave, it’s the cupcake craze. And what’s not to love about tasty little morsels of cake topped with beautiful swirls of creamy frosting? If you ask me, cupcakes have the perfect cake to frosting ration. Making every single bite that much more delicious! I’ve made an assortment of cupcakes, from Rocky Road Cupcakes to Red Velvet Cupcakes but THESE Snickers Cupcakes? Hands down, my favourite.
If you’re looking for an impressive dessert for your next celebration, birthday or dinner – or perhaps just a party of one – these are just the sweet treat you’ve been looking for. The best thing about these cupcakes? They’re easy to make and they taste amazing!
First, the deliciously soft cocoa flavoured cakes are topped with smooth and creamy peanut butter frosting. It’s the type of frosting that you’ll just want to face plant into. Then, melted chocolate is drizzled over the top, and finally, a chunky bite-sized pieces of Snickers is added to the top. You know chocolate and peanut butter are a match made in heaven but when you add Snickers into the mix? Heaven on a plate!
