  • 12 mini Snickers bars, halved

  1. Preheat your oven to 350°F (175°C) and line a muffin tin with cupcake liners, preparing the canvas for our delightful creations.
  2. In a large mixing bowl, sift together the all-purpose flour, cocoa powder, granulated sugar, baking powder, baking soda, and salt, ensuring a smooth and lump-free mixture.
  3. Add the eggs, milk, vegetable oil, and vanilla extract to the dry ingredients, beating on medium speed for 2 minutes until the batter is smooth and well combined, creating a luscious base for our cupcakes.
  4. Stir in the boiling water until the batter is smooth, despite its thin consistency, infusing it with moisture and ensuring a tender crumb.
  5. Fill each cupcake liner about two-thirds full with batter, preparing them for their delightful filling.
  6. In a small bowl, mix together the smooth peanut butter and confectioners’ sugar until smooth and creamy, creating a luxurious peanut butter mixture that will add a delightful surprise to our cupcakes.
  7. Place a teaspoonful of the peanut butter mixture into the center of each cupcake batter, creating a pocket of indulgence.
  8. Press a halved mini Snickers bar into the peanut butter mixture in each cupcake, ensuring that every bite is filled with the irresistible flavor of Snickers.
  9. Bake the cupcakes in the preheated oven for 18-20 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean, indicating their perfect doneness.
  10. Allow the cupcakes to cool in the pan for 5 minutes, then transfer them to a wire rack to cool completely, allowing them to set and firm up.
  11. Once cooled, drizzle each cupcake with chocolate sauce and sprinkle with crushed peanuts, adding a final touch of indulgence and flavor to our masterpiece.
