Last weekend our family and lots of family friends had a big golf outing and then headed back to my parents house for a party afterwards. My dad’s birthday was this past week so I wanted to make him something special to have that night. His favorite dessert is Snickers bars so I decided to make a cupcake that incorporated all the key ingredients from that: chocolate, caramel and peanuts. I made chocolate cupcakes and filled them with caramel, swirled the tops with peanut butter buttercream and topped them with chocolate curls, a drizzle of caramel and chopped peanuts. The star of the show for me was the homemade caramel, which takes a lot of practice to perfect but is so delicious that it’s worth it. The first two pictures were taken the night of the party on my iPhone and don’t do the cupcakes justice, the third one is a clearer view of them! Click here to get the recipe and see how they’re made!
