Satisfy Your Hunger

17 Sep

What better way to start your Monday than with cupcakes? I can’t think of one either. After an entirely too long of a trip down the candy isle the other day, I’ve been on this huge candy-bar dessert kick lately. With a ridiculous amount of snickers bars finding their way to my cart, I knew something must be done with them. Snickers and a cupcake? Heck to the yes.

Ingredients — Cupcakes
-3/4 cup butter, softened
-1 2/3 cup sugar
-3 eggs
-1 tsp vanilla
-2 cups all-purpose flour
-2/3 cups cocoa powder
-1 1/4 tsp baking soda
-1 tsp salt
-1/4 tsp baking powder
-1 1/3 cup water
-2 teaspoons Torani Salted Caramel syrup (Optional)

Heat oven to 350 degrees. Grease 2 9-inch round cake pans or line cupcake tins with paper liners.
Combine butter, sugar, eggs, salted caramel syrup, and vanilla in a large mixing bowl and mix on high for 3 minutes. Stir together cocoa powder, baking soda, salt, and baking powder. Add to the butter mixture alternately with the water, beating until well blended. Bake 20-25 minutes or until a tester comes out clean

Ingredients — Frosting
-2 sticks butter, softened
-6 cups powdered sugar
-1 teaspoon vanilla extract
-1 tablespoon salted caramel Torani syrup
-2 tablespoons caramel sauce

Beat butter until creamed. Add vanilla and caramel syrup. Slowly add in powdered sugar. Incorporate caramel sauce

Chocolate cake + salted caramel sauce + caramel buttercream + Snickers = A truly decadent cupcake explosion.

Now stop drooling and get your butt over here and eat them because I’ve got entirely too many tempting cupcakes on the counter…

Fun Fact Of the Day: Over 15 million Snickers bars are manufactured everyday. Holy sugar high!

Happy Monday!
