Twix Cupcake Amazingness


 I set out on a cupcake adventure, best date night ever. I love a good Twix candy bar every once and a while. So we set out to make cupcakes that tasted just like a Twix. My roommates call me a cake snob because I like to make everything from scratch, I think it just tastes better.


This is an intense recipe but it was fun to make with somebody else. These are very delicious and a little bit rich, but you just can not stop eating them. I delivered them to some neighbor girls and they loved them. So here is the

Cookie Bottom Directions

1 cup of the butter, salt, sugar, and vanilla together until thoroughly
combined. Refrain from eating this.  It’ll totally mess up your ratios.
Add the flour and blend until the mixture resembles moist sand with pieces the
size of peas scattered throughout. If you take a small handful and squeeze it,
the mixture should hold together well.
Take about a tablespoon and then press it down at the bottom of the cupcake liners.
Put in the oven for 7 minutes and then pull out and let them cool.

Cupcake Directions

In a medium bowl, whisk together the flours, baking powder, and baking soda.
In a stand mixer fitted with the paddle attachment (or a large bowl if using a
hand-held mixer), beat the butter, sugar, and salt on medium speed until light
and fluffy, about 2 minutes, scraping down the sides of the bowl as necessary.
With the mixer running, gradually add the dulce de leche; beat another minute,
until thoroughly incorporated.
Add the eggs one at a time, beating well after each addition, then mix in the oil and vanilla. Reduce the mixer speed to low; add the dry ingredients in three additions, alternating with the buttermilk and ending with the dry ingredients. Beat each addition just until incorporated.
Divide the batter between the prepared cupcake liners on top of the cookie bottom,
filling each cup about two-thirds full. Bake for 15-20 minutes, until a
toothpick inserted into the center of a cupcake, comes out clean. Transfer the
pan to a wire rack to cool.

Carmel Directions

In a large saucepan combine butter, brown sugar, and light corn syrup until
everything has melted and the mixture comes to a boil.
Reduce to low heat and add the sweetened condensed milk. Stir continuously for about 5
minutes. The longer you stir the firmer your caramel will be, so don’t stir too
long or you will make a caramel lollipop.
Let cool, then fill a piping bag with the cream mixture and use a #4 or a #5 tip (a long skinny tip)
to pipe the mixture into the cupcakes. Make sure that you don’t over-fill the
cupcakes or they will break.

Chocolate Frosting directions

Melt the chocolate chips until smooth, let cool. Then add cocoa and hot water and
blend together and let cool.
Cream softened butter in a stand mixer and then add a chocolate mixer, and gradually add powdered sugar. It tastes a little bit like a fudge. Once you frost the cupcakes
I suggest putting them in the fridge and let everything set up.
Decorate with a mini Twix or we just cut up a regular-sized Twix to garnish the top. So cute and so good! Enjoy!!
