NOW I've gone and done it! I've crossed from recreational cupcakes to the hard stuff and I'm not sure I'll be able to control this. I'm not sure I even want to!
The "hard stuff" is Snickers Cupcakes. This recipe rates a full scale O M G.
|Just looking at the picture makes me want a cupcake NOW!|
The recipe can be found at My Baking Addiction http://www.mybakingaddiction.com/snickers-cupcakes/ It's one of the recipes I'd marked to try out . If I ever thought I could stop making cupcakes, this just put an end to that thought. I should just start applying to be on The Biggest Loser now, because just one cupcake must be 4000 calories. And I DON'T CARE!
I was a bit concerned about the measurements in the recipe since my trusty Duncan Hines Devil's Food Cake mix is now short 2 ounces AND I didn't have the large package of chocolate pudding mix. I kept to the recipe except for using less cake mix and pudding and they came out unbelievably amazingly totally yummy GREAT!
This recipe was originally posted in 2010 and is still getting comments on the My Baking Addiction blog and I noticed one from just a couple of days ago asking what to do if the only cake mix you can find already has pudding in it. She responded to just use the smaller 3.9 oz box of pudding. I'm anxious to try this recipe again with a) a large box of chocolate pudding and b) with the smaller box of pudding in the cake mix with the pudding already in it. I'm curious what the difference might be. Probably not much - I swoon too much when eating these to take note of anything but a huge difference! LOL
If you like Snickers at all, you MUST make these cupcakes. They're very easy. Just watch out that you don't taste test the frosting too much (spoken as someone who did). It is VERY sweet and it is VERY delicious and VERY addicting. Also, I had exactly the amount needed to pipe the frosting on top.
