Milky Way Bar Cupcakes

Milky Way Bar Cupcakes

We’ve posted plenty of recipes for candy bars posing as cupcakes, but this recipe has a little something new. These Milky Way cupcakes aren’t just topped with pieces of Milky Way or baked with a little candy bar goodness inside. Instead, this recipe tops simple, but delicious, yellow cupcakes with Milky Way frosting. Yes, you read that right. You won’t need one single candy bar for the cupcakes themselves, but the frosting recipe calls for 12 ounces of Milky Way. Whether you opt for a few large bars or 12 small ones, this frosting is sure to hit that chocolate sweet tooth in all the right spots.

Salted Caramel Cupcakes

Salted Caramel Cupcakes

Sweet and salty is all the rage these days, and these salted caramel cupcakes are a sure winner anywhere you take them. They’re based on a vanilla cake recipe, but tasty, homemade salted caramel sauce kicks these treats to another level. Top them with salted caramel buttercream and a final drizzle of caramel for a collection of cupcakes capable of causing salted caramel overload, which is totally a good thing, right?

Classic Pumpkin Cupcakes

Classic Pumpkin Cupcakes

The “pumpkin spice season” may be over, but for events and gatherings during colder months, you can always rely on pumpkin to come to the rescue (without the toppers, of course). This easy-to-make, classic pumpkin cupcake will never fail you, especially if you top it with the smooth and creamy cream cheese frosting included in the recipe. Autumn, schmautumn. These cupcakes are delectable any time of year, especially…now!

Butterfinger Cupcakes

Butterfinger Cupcakes

No matter how much you love Butterfinger, it’s impossible to deny the sticky, almost painful mess that is Butterfinger in teeth. If only there were some way to get the delicious flavor of that luscious peanut butter and chocolate combination without the inability to open your mouth for the rest of the day. These Butterfinger cupcakes are the perfect combination of that flavor, without the pain and suffering of Butterfinger aftermath. Topped with a delicious, crunchy Butterfinger frosting to offset the very strong (but delicate) chocolate cake underneath, these are simply a must-make (and a must-eat) for any chocolate / peanut butter lover.

Snickers Cupcakes

Snickers Cupcakes

There’s nothing quite as comforting, during any season, as the perfect candy bar, and Snickers may be just that. Of course, we’re fans of cupcakes as the perfect sweet treat. Thankfully, these Snickers cupcakes combine the best of both worlds with their yummy rich chocolate base and chocolate peanut butter frosting. That combination is enough of a treat in itself, but drizzle your creation with caramel sauce and top it with a slice of Snickers, and there’s just nothing else to be desired. These scrumptious dessert cups are a real crowd-pleaser, especially if you’re indoors braving a cold winter. So make a few extra, in the spirit of giving.

Double Chocolate Reese’s Pieces Cupcakes

Double Chocolate Reese's Pieces Cupcakes

It’s Friday and officially the season to eat yummy goodies all the time. There are more than enough cupcake recipes to get you through the season with a new one each day, but this glorious recipe is all about Reese’s, which is absolutely alright with me. Along with some Reese’s Pieces worked into the batter and slathered on top, the recipe includes absolutely divine double chocolate batter that will make you cry tears of chocolatey delicious joy. Plus, there’s a lovely layer of chocolate peanut butter frosting on top of this cupcake – what more could you possibly need from a seasonal sweet?

Pumpkin Snickers Cupcakes

Pumpkin Snickers Cupcakes

A pumpkin cupcake is certainly not hard to find, and neither is a Snickers, but this recipe combines the two glorious flavors into one, promising cupcakes you won’t be able to resist. These delightful morsels are topped with a nugat frosting and chocolate that looks like it took four hours. (It doesn’t…unless you eat it all and have to start over. No one will judge.) Based on sight alone, it would be tough to judge anyone for eating too many – that orange and brown is the perfect combination of delicious.

Pumpkin Patch Cupcakes

Pumpkin Patch Cupcakes

Cute, functional, and delicious – that’s a pretty desirable cupcake, if you ask me. These little guys look tasty tasty in addition to actually being tasty. They’re the perfect balance of “how adorable!” and “I need to eat that right now.” Pumpkin is in, and these cupcakes take full advantage of that seasonal flavor while it’s still here. If you need more convincing, just remember the adorable little tootsie roll that is the pumpkin stem and enjoy!

Kit Kat Cupcakes

Kit Kat Cupcakes

Nothing makes a sweet treat (think cupcake) better than combining it with something else delicious. Sometimes this is fruit. Sometimes it’s a flavoring of some sort…and sometimes it’s just more sugary goodness (i.e. chocolate). While these wonderful little morsels are great for that “leftover” Halloween candy you just have “laying” around, they’re also great for any sort of event or just ‘cuz since Kit Kats – yes, you heard me – are available year around at any friendly neighborhood checkout stand. Psst: the secret ingredient is love…or really…some coffee, but still, that’s almost the same thing.

Slasher Movie Cupcakes

Slasher Movie Cupcakes

It’s hard to argue that slasher movies are great occasions for popcorn, but this little cake in a cup might give that idea a run for its money. This goolish, haunting cupcake makes a GREAT treat for Halloween and will spook up any party without creeping out your guests (hopefully). With a little detail, a fork, and some red food coloring, you can make these already-tasty cupcakes the stars of your party. Paired with a (hopefully fake) knife and some other wonderful treats, these make a great choice for just about any event this eventful candy season.
