The basics of this recipe are this: a simple boxed, chocolate cupcake mix topped with a two ingredient caramel frosting and a tiny Snickers bar. Sounds easy enough, right? Let’s get started.

Ingredients You’ll Need:

  • Chocolate Cake Mix. Any chocolate brand you’d like to use.
  • Eggs and Vegetable Oil. To follow the instructions on the cake mix box.
  • Vanilla Frosting. We used Pillsbury but you can use whichever brand you want.
  • Dulce de Leche Caramel. This comes in a can in the baking aisle and looks like this.
  • Chocolate and Caramel Sauces. The kind you’ll find with the ice cream for sundaes.
  • Mini Snickers Bars.
  • Peanuts. This is totally optional.

How To Make Snickers Cupcakes

  1. Make Cupcakes. Follow along with the recipe on the back of the cake mix box. Bake as usual and while they cool, you can move onto the frosting.
  2. Make Frosting. Mix together the three cans of vanilla frosting with the can of caramel with an electric mixer.
  3. Frost. When the cupcakes are completely cooled, frost them with the caramel icing. Top with chocolate and caramel drizzle and a mini Snickers. If you want, add chopped peanuts, too.

Snickers Cupcakes

We are obsessed with how easy it is to make Snickers bar cupcakes. I am going to make these for my husbands birthday this year. They remind me so much of the cupcakes I spent way too much money on at the bakery last year. He’s gonna love them!
