Butterfinger Cupcakes bring delicious peanut butter and combine it with with Butterfinger candy. A decadent treat!
Butterfingers are the one candy bar that I cannot avoid. Diet saboteur? Absolutely.
My son loves Butterfingers and unfortunately, so do I. There are regular sized Butterfingers, mini sized Butterfingers, even unwrapped Butterfinger bites that come In a resealable bag. What is this life, I mean seriously. The fact that skinny people exist in this world is nothing short of a miracle.
When I find the candy situation getting out of hand in my house, I find ways to chop it up and bake with it. Then I pass it along to friends or neighbors. Because for some reason, it’s weird to go knock on a neighbor’s door and hand them seven miniature candy bars, but when you bake them into cupcakes or cookies, it’s perfectly normal.
I do not make these ridiculous rules, I just follow them in hopes of having actual human friends.
Enter, these cupcakes. With Halloween right around the corner, I am going to be baking up candy like a crazy lady, and these are just perfect. There are Butterfinger bits mixed into the peanut butter cake, as well as piled generously on top of the peanut butter frosting.
Overkill? No. Don’t forget, friends – we are on a mission. A secret, candy bar passing-off mission. I recommend delivering extra to your skinniest neighbors. You know, just to be nice. Not to sabotage them or anything. Of course not.
This recipe would work well with other candy bars as well – Reese’s cups would be a great addition, should you have some lying around. Or Heath bars, with their buttery goodness. However you bake them up, be sure to save one or four for yourself. Quality control and all that.
