Trick or treat, smell my feet, give me something good to eat…
Preferably chocolate. Bonus points if alcohol is included.
This recipe was just that.
S’mores and I were invited to a Halloween party, so of course I volunteered to bring dessert. Since Halloween was on a Saturday (teachers everywhere are thanking their lucky stars) and it was an adults-only party, I wanted to add a little booze to the mix.
We had a TON of candy for trick or treaters (Target had a sale! I couldn’t help myself). After surveying the candy, the majority of it were Snickers bars. Chocolate, peanuts, nougat, and caramel – what’s not to love? May I present to you
Schnockered Snickers Cupcakes with Caramel Vodka Cream Cheese Frosting
Oh yes. They were DELICIOUS! And pretty easy.
S’mores even helped!
I mixed up a box of dark chocolate cake mix according to the directions, scooped it into mini cupcake liners, and threw some chopped up Snickers in those bad boys.
For the icing, I kind of made it up.
- 2 sticks of butter
- 1 8oz brick of cream cheese
- splash of vanilla
- 4 cups powdered sugar (plus more if you like your frosting a little thicker
- caramel vodka (you be the judge of how much you’d like… 😉 )
For the garnish, I drizzled a little caramel sauce, chopped up Snickers bars, and a little chocolate spider (it was Halloween after all). They were a hit!
