I'm the kind of roommate who will feed you Snickers Cupcakes for breakfast.


After my lovely roommate complained, that I never bake her any Cupcakes, I baked her a batch of her own choosing. She wanted something with peanuts and chocolate, and since I get weirdly competitive with everything and everyone when it comes to food, I made her Snickers cupcakes. And because I am a very nice person, I will now share my recipe with you. Y'all welcome!


The Absurdly Decadent Snickers Cupcake Extravaganza

You need:

100g butter
50g peanut butter
3 eggs
100g sugar
50g brown sugar
120g flour
4 Tbl cocoa powder
1 tblsp baking powder

200g cream cheese
300g dark chocolate

100g double cream
50g butter
150g sugar

mini Snickers bars
mini Marshmallows



Alright, it sounds really complicated, but it's actually not. Start by whipping up the eggs, the sugar and the brown sugar while you melt the butter and the peanut butter in a pot over low low heat. Mix the flour, the cocoa powder and the baking powder (i.e.: all the dry ingredients). Then pour the butter to the eggs and sugar and slowly put in the dry stuff.



Put the dough in cupcake liners and throw the whole shit into the preheated oven. 15-20 minutes at 175°C should do.



Slowly and carefully melt the sugar (I usually put in a little syrup or honey, so it doesn't burn too quickly) and in another pot, heat up the double cream and the butter. Then pour that into the molten sugar (it will huff and puff - just stay calm and stir the motherfucker until everything calms down!). Let it simmer for a little while and then take off the heat. You now have caramel sauce. Don't taste it - it is like lava and will burn your face right off!!!



When the Cupcakes are done, take them out of the oven and let them cool off. Then you put a hole in the middle. I use one of those things you can de-core an apple with. Works like a charm.



Now, the magic really happens. Take the mini marshmallows and stuff one of them into each hole.



Then cut up some mini Snickers and stuff a bit of that into each hole, too.



And then (because these cupcakes are insane!) you pour caramel sauce into the whole. Preferably, it is now warm but not too hot. The chocolate and marshmallows should only just slightly melt.

While you let the whole thing cool of, you whip up the cream cheese and the molten chocolate into a frosting. Wrap it in cellophane and let it cool off in the fridge. Then you put the frosting on top.



Decorate and devour. Might cause a massive sugar shock. But,...you know,...YOLO and stuff...
