Snickers Cupcakes

post #1 of 395
Thread Starter 
Ok, I played around with the idea we discussed in the 'huge' cupcake thread and this is what I came up with, complete with some pix to illustrate. I don't know why... just for fun I guess. icon_rolleyes.gif But I thought I'd share what I did for them. These could be quite popular with candy lovers!

At first I wasn't sure what flavor to make the cupcakes themselves, I thought about making them like the nougat, but I love chocolate cake. So, I decided to make a filling in the cupcake to be like the nougat, and used devil's food cake.

I filled the cupcakes with bettercreme that was whipped with Hershey's Dulce de Leche syrup to sort of serve as the nougat.

I made home made caramel but only cooked it to about 242 degrees so it would stay nice and malleable, spread it on a cookie sheet and sprinkled it with peanuts, which I gently pressed into the caramel to stick. I cut out circles of caramel with the largest metal cutter in the Wilton round fondant cutter set. (I used the medium sized one to cut out circles with no peanuts for mini Milky Way cuppies.)

After filling and topping with the caramel I dipped them in melted milk chocolate. YUM!!!

Now, my biggest problem... what to call them? Can't call them Snickers because that's a copyright issue. Chuckles is already taken as well. So, do I call them Sniggers, Snickles, Giggles, etc.? What do you think?

Why thank you!! I suggest you all try them... they are crazy good! One thing that I might do differently... after cutting out the caramel, stretch it a little to completely cover the top of the cupcake. Maybe not... who knows. They are good the way they are!!

Hahaha, Holy Cows would be cool!

DH says he likes either 'Snickles' or 'Chucklers'. His first choice was 'Titters', but that's kind of for a different reason. Hehehe.
