Snickers Cupcakes

Snickers Cupcakes

The only candy bar that really followed me into adulthood is a Snickers bar, fun-sized to be safe! Something about the chocolate and the peanuts together is just irresistible and turning those same flavours into a somewhat grown-up cupcake avatar was second nature. Soft dark chocolate cake with a creamy, not cloyingly sweet peanut butter frosting, a generous drizzle of salted caramel and some salty roasted peanuts to top it all off. It’s just so good!

For the cupcakes
  • 3/4th cup all-purpose flour (90 gms)
  • 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • 1/4 tsp salt if using unsalted butter
  • 100 gms 70% to 75% dark chocolate, chopped
  • 1/2 cup butter, at room temperature (115 gms)
  • 3/4th cup brown sugar (160 gms)
  • 1 egg, at room temperature (see notes)
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1/2 cup freshly boiled water (125 ml)

For the salted caramel
  • 1/2 cup caster sugar (90 gms)
  • 3 tbsps salted butter, at room temp, cut into small pieces (42 gms)
  • 1/4th cup whipping cream, at room temp (60 ml)
  • Extra pinch of salt, optional

For the frosting
1/2 cup unsalted butter, at room temp (115 gms)
1/2 cup creamy peanut butter (135 gms; I prefer natural, unsweetened but regular is fine too)
2 tbsps cream (whipping cream recommended)
1/2 tsp vanilla extract
3/4th cup icing sugar
1/3 cup roughly chopped salted roasted peanuts
