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)

Directions
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

Directions
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 Iโ€™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!
