I’m pretty sure that these are the most decadent, mouth watering, soul warming, heart hugging, richest and most insanely delicious cupcakes I’ll ever eat.
I mean let me just let the pictures do the talking eh 😋
Zoom into that surprise centre shall we 😉
Let’s take a moment…to appreciate but also to discuss these little gems from heaven!
It all starts off with the most delicious super moist and chocolatey chocolate cupcake. Once those bad boys are all baked and cooled, we’re going to stuff them with a really simple but mighty delicious peanut caramel sauce. I tell ya, this sauce is so good it just makes you smile once you bite into the cupcake and see it oozing out.
It’s just my regular homemade caramel sauce with a few chopped up salted peanuts. There’s no measurement really, I just added enough peanuts to make sure you get one with each bite but not too much to over saturate the caramel sauce. Just eye ball it and go with what you like.
There is another way you can make a surprise centre for these cupcakes:
Chop up some Snickers into small cubes, freeze those cubes and then push one into the middle of the cupcake batter right before you bake. They should be frozen so that they hold their shape and not just melt into the cupcake.
For the frosting you can go both ways. Either a luscious caramel cream cheese frosting or a lovely peanut butter frosting. I’ve made both and loved each equally so I pretty much just go with whatever ingredients I have on hand.
Once you’ve got the frosting done and piled sky high on top of the cupcakes, you’re going to drizzle on some more caramel along with some chocolate sauce if you like.
And lastly, just a few chopped up pieces of Snickers. I love doing that because the chocolate bar becomes nice and soft from the frosting, caramel etc and kind of melds into the whole cupcake. It’s just delicious!! 😊
Once these babies are ready, make sure you eat one before serving or else you probably won’t get one then, they’re guaranteed to disappear in a flash!
Dig in my friends! 😋
