Twix Cupcakes

Here is the recipe for the Twix cupcakes we made for Aaron's birthday yesterday.  You will need the following:
  • One chocolate cake mix with the eggs, oil and water as listed
  • 1/2 cup sour cream
  • 1 small box of instant chocolate pudding mix
  • Twix candy bars
  • Werther's Original Chewy Caramels
  • Keebler shortbread cookies
  • Pillsbury butter cream frosting
Follow the directions on the cake mix box adding in the two special ingredients of the instant pudding mix (dry) and sour cream.

Place one Keebler shortbread cookie into each cupcake tin.  Pour batter on top of cookies....
Push one Werther's caramel into each cupcake.....
The tricky part is determining how long to set the oven timer for.  Do not follow the baking time recommendation on the cake mix box.  Since the shortbread cooking is taking up some of the space as well as the caramel, baking time is greatly reduced.  I think we did 12-15 minutes.
Let the cupcakes cool down and frost them with the Pillsbury butter cream frosting.  Slice up the Twix candy bars and arrange a few pieces on top of each cupcake.....
Totally optional: 

Display those wonderful, rich, gooey centered cupcakes in these perfect little cupcake stands.  Available at Stephanie's store, ROOM 5 Home Decor Boutique in Ozark MO.

  6. Have you had any reviews on these yet!? They look delicious!

  7. Yes, you do set the oven to the temperature on the cake box instructions.

  8. I made these tonight and they turned out delicious. :) I even put some Twix in my food processor to crush them and sprinkled them on top with half a Twix mini on it. They looked and tasted amazing. :)

  9. These sound great! Found you from KK.


  10. These look amazing, I'm planning on making them this week! Which cake mix did you end up using? I bought Betty Crocker Triple Chocolate Fudge, but it says pudding is in the mix so I wasn't sure if it would be too pudding-y if I add the pudding too! Any thoughts?
