Snickers Cupcake Recipe

There is something about the combination of chocolate and peanuts in a Snickers bar that I just love. The sweet versus salty combination. Having been on holiday it seems like forever since I have been doing any baking. Whilst wandering around the supermarket the other day I saw they were selling a multipack for a pound so I decided that Snickers cupcakes would be on this weeks menu.


I decided that I would use crunchy peanut butter as the main fat content to my cupcakes and add in some chocolate chips to compliment this.

For the frosting I used smooth peanut butter again as the main fat content. The frosting was thicker than usual but had a fantastic flavour. Melted chocolate and a slice of Snickers bar added to the luxurious topping.


Snickers Cupcakes


Makes 10 cupcakes

For the cupcakes
  • 3oz crunchy peanut butter
  • 1oz butter
  • 3oz caster sugar caster sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 4 oz self raising flour
  • 50g chocolate chips

For the frosting
  • 8oz icing sugar
  • 3oz smooth peanut butter
  • 1oz butter

To decorate
  • 25g chocolate to drizzle
  • 2 Snickers bars


  1. Preheat the oven to 180C. 
  2. Mix all the cake ingredients together. 
  3. Divide the mixture between 10 cupcake cases. I find using an ice cream scoop helps to make them even.
  4. Bake until a skewer comes out clean. Allow to cool before adding the frosting.
  5. To make the peanut frosting mix the icing sugar, butter and peanut butter together using an electric whisk.
  6. Pipe this onto each cupcake. The mixture is quite stiff.
  7. Melt some chocolate and drizzle on over the cupcakes.
  8. Slice a small chunk of Snickers bar and add this to the top.

Perfect for any peanut butter lovers. What is your favourite chocolate bar?
