Snickers candy bar was created around 1930. Made by Mars Inc, Snickers is one of the world’s favorite candy bars. I have loved this candy bar since childhood. There are many variations to choose from, Snickers Almond, Snickers Crisper, Snickers Original, Snickers Bites and more.
This delicious cupcake recipe incorporates the Snickers minibars to create a cupcake your kids will love. This decadent dessert creation is something to enjoy on occasion but is worth it. Easy to make using a cake mix and Nestle Dulce de Leche Caramel and Pillsbury Vanilla Frosting. You can certainly make your homemade vanilla frosting. I prefer this, but on a time crunch, the canned frosting is what I use. For more dessert recipes click here. Enjoy!
