Candy Bar Cupcakes


It's Sweet to Share!

At the beginning of the year I shared with you all a special indulgence: Candy Bar Pizza. I told you that this is the dessert I turn to for comfort, but what I left out, this is really the dessert I turn to for a lot of reasons, some reasons that don’t even exist.

It’s been nagging at me for a while to transform these bar cookies into a cupcake, and they turned out just as tasty as the cookies with the added indulgence of being soft and fluffy.

Candy Bar Cupcakes

4-8 of your favorite candy bars, plus 1 bag of favorite M&M’s
(Twix, Payday, Reeses, Snickers, Rolo’s, Baby Ruth, Butterfinger, Kit Kat, Nestle Crunch)
Crush, cut and mash into tiny pieces
Mix together in a bowl, set aside

Peanut Butter Chocolate Ganache Frosting
½ cup peanut butter
1 cup chopped chocolate
½ cup cream
Melt together over low heat, stiring constantly, until incorporated
Remove from heat and let cool
When completely cooled whip with beaters until fluffy

1 ½ sticks softened butter
½ cup white sugar
½ cup brown sugar
Cream together until fluffy

1 teaspoon vanilla
4 eggs
Mix together until color lightens

1/2 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon baking soda

  1. Catherine, you're always making the most fantastic things, sincerely. Ah the '80's were a simpler time. We went to rent it on Netflix and were astonished at our corrupt childhoods as well. Good for all of us.
