How to Make Butterfinger Cupcakes

Step-by-Step

  1. Unwrap your candy bars. I was slightly disappointed every single bar I purchased was broken. Not that it matters…just saying!
  2. Using a vegetable peelers, scrap the chocolate off the bars into a bowl, you will use the crumbles later on.
  3. Finely crush the butterfingers., in a blender if possible, or placing them in a ziplock bag and rolling over with a rolling pin would work. Set aside.
  4. In the bowl of an electric mixer, beat the butter until soft and creamy.  Then add in peanut butter, mix until combined well.
  5. Dump in the butterfingers crumbs. Mix until fully combined.
  6. Slowly mix in powdered sugar.

    As you can see we’ve lost the bright orange color of the butterfingers. Since looks are a good portion of the brains way to taste…I added in some orange coloring to help it return to the look of butterfingers. Totally optional…
  7. Once all is mixed well and desired color is achieved add in 1 TBS of milk until you have reached the desired consistency. I used 2 in my icing, as always I like mine to be a bit stiff to hold up to my pipping habits! :)
