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 gorgeous.

1 c
1 c
1 c
vegetable oil (***their's says canola..i use veg.)
1 tsp
pure vanilla extract
1 1/2 c
1/3 c
baking cocoa (i used hershey's)
1 tsp
baking soda
1/2 tsp


ounces cream cheese....(their recipe shows fat free..i say why cut corners
2 Tbsp
confectioners' sugar
snickers candy bars (2.07 ounces each), finely chopped


1/3 c
butter, cubed
1/3 c
packed brown sugar
3 Tbsp
1 1/2 c
confectioners' sugar


1In 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.
2For filling, in a small bowl, beat cream cheese and confectioners' sugar until light and fluffy. Add egg; mix well. Stir in the candy bars.
3Fill 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.
4For 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.
