Pumpkin Snickers Cupcakes are a knockout combination of moist pumpkin cake and peanut nougat frosting. Mini Snickers bars are the perfect finishing touch.
I’m not sure if you know this about me, but I’m pretty much a candy expert. If there was ever such a thing as a PHD in candy, I’d have all the fancy degrees hanging on my office wall. It wouldn’t be unusual for me to get an urgent phone call at 3 am and have to rush to an emergency chocolate tasting.
It would be a hard life, but I think I could handle it. Someone has to be willing to make sacrifices around here.
It is with this in mind that I find it my duty to inform you that for those in the know, there is a very distinct candy hierarchy.
There are the lightweight candies: gummies, hard candies, candy corn, salt water taffy. Anything fruity that isn’t incredibly filling or decadent. These candies are basically calorie-free. Like eating air, really. Honestly, one should never deprive themselves of these invisible treats.
Then you’ve got the middleweights: Nestle Crunch Bars, Kit Kats, Peppermint Patties. There is chocolate involved, but they aren’t a valid lunch choice. You’re still walking away hungry and in search of further sustenance.
And at the top of the hierarchy… the heavy hitters. Twix (I mean…you get TWO), Peanut M&Ms, Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups… and the granddaddy of them all, Snickers Bars.
Snickers bars are the meat and potatoes of the candy world. The jackpot. It really doesn’t get better than a Snickers bar, especially straight out of the freezer. And trust me, I would know. I’m the expert.
Because you deserve the very best, I decided to combine Snicker Bars with everyone’s favorite Fall flavor – pumpkin. And what we have here is the ultimate Halloween treat! Pumpkin cupcakes, peanut nougat frosting (it is TO DIE) and Snickers candy bar pieces to finish them off.
Enjoy them as part of your pots-Halloween celebration – they’re party perfect!
