Snickers cupcakesMmmmmmm, Snickers chocolate!!! Who doesn’t like this rich sweet and salty taste of chocolate, peanuts and caramel! Yummy! If I had to choose one of my favorite food taste ever , this one would be in my top ten! But, believe me or not I’ve never tried to make some Snickers cupcakes!

So I’ve finally decided to play with my two favorite foods – cupcakes and Snickers! I’ve already featured some great cupcakes with this tasty ingredient. If you haven’t seen them jet check these links: Snickers Cupcakesby by Pass the Sushi , Peanut Butter Snickers Cupcakes ,Snickers Chocolate Mousse Cupcakes.

Yesterday , I had a lot of time so I’ve decided to do my best for this delicious treat. Almost every recipe for the Snickers cupcakes required Snickers candy bars to stuff the chocolate cupcakes, but this one doesn’t. These cupcakes have two different homemade filling as a delicious surprise inside, and really does taste like the real Snickers. Snickers candy bars is used only for garnish on top and to symbolizes the flavor of these cupcakes.

I hope you will enjoy!
