Another wonderful treat from Taste of Home website..

I used to have a subscription to the magazine, and didn't renew this last time. I have since found so many wonderful recipes on their website..too many, LOL. This little cupcake is one that I had made in the past from another cookbook some time ago. I love their presentation on how they have showcased the cupcake on taste of home..so gorgeous.

How to Make Candy Bar Cupcakes

Step-by-Step

  1. In a large bowl, beat the sugar, buttermilk, oil and vanilla until well blended. combine the flour, cocoa, baking soda and salt; gradually beat into sugar mixture until blended.
  2. For filling, in a small bowl, beat cream cheese and confectioners' sugar until light and fluffy. Add egg; mix well. Stir in the candy bars.
  3. Fill paper-lined muffin cups one-third full with batter. Drop filling by tablespoonfuls into the center of each cupcake (cups will be about half full). bake at 350 for 20-25 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the filling comes out clean. cool for 10 minutes before removing from pans to wire racks to cool completely.
  4. For frosting, in a small saucepan, melt butter. Stir in brown sugar. Bring to a boil; cook for two minutes, stirring occasionally. Remove from the heat; stir in the milk, then confectioners' sugar. cool until frosting reaches spreading consistency. Frost cupcakes. Yields: 18 cupcakes
  5. **I piped on frosting with a decorator's tip. I chopped an extra snicker's bar..and sprinkled pieces on top of the frosting.
  6. ***also, the reason I don't use canola oil in baking..I have found that it has a tendency to make cakes fall in the center, as well as cupcakes. I use it for frying..etc., just not for baking.
