PB & Snickers

So, for some reason, I've been on a Snickers kick lately. I think I saw some wonderful Snickers brownies somewhere, and they made me crave Snickers. I finally broke down and made some Snickers treats.

Peanut Butter goes great with the original Snickers. I guess that's why the Snickers company started making Snickers Peanut Butter Squared. These are also perfect for an after school snack. Are you ready for the recipe?

2 1/2 cups of flour
2 cups of brown sugar
1 cup of peanut butter
1/2 cup of vegetable oil
2 eggs
1 1/2 cup of milk
1 tsp vanilla
2 tbsp lemon juice
36 mini Snickers

Preheat oven to 350.

Combine flour, brown sugar, and peanut butter. At this point, the mixture may be clumped. It will smooth out once you add the rest of your ingredients.

Add vegetable oil, eggs, vanilla, and lemon juice to the peanut butter mixture. Use your mixer to mix well.

Add 1 cup of the milk, and mix until well combined. Now, add your remaining milk, and again mix well.

In a blender, blend 24 mini Snickers into small pieces. Use a spoon to separate large clumps of blended Snickers that have melted together.

Add the Snickers pieces to the cupcake mixture and combine.

Bake at 350 for 20-25 minutes or until an inserted toothpick comes out clean.

Let your cupcakes cool completely, and top it off with Chocolate Buttercream. Halve the remaining 12 Snickers and place one half in each of the cupcakes icing. This adds a really wonderful accent to the cupcakes.

Hubby took some of these cupcakes to the neighbor across the street. Her exact words were "These look wonderful." Then, a few hours later she stopped Hubby outside and proclaimed, " The cupcakes were really good. I've never had anything like that!"

Well, now you have the recipe. Go out and buy some Snickers and get to baking!
