Snickers Cupcakes

Easily one of the best cupcake recipes I've come across, these chocolate cupcakes have middles that are filled with bits of snickers covered in homemade caramel sauce. What, did your teeth just tell you to stay away from these? You may want to make a dentist appointment after eating them, but they're amazing and will charm the pants off of your everyone at your party when you bring them out!

Chocolate Dump Cake

It may not have the prettiest title, but this chocolate cake is so easy that you'll actually volunteer to bring it to family functions. No kidding! With a shockingly low amount of ingredients, this chocolate cake spans seasons. Need a quick dessert for dinner? Dump cake. Need to bring a cake into work when you don't care enough to bake something for people you don't even like? Dump cake.

Molten Chocolate Cupcakes

In my long, long history of blogging for Yeah, I'd Bake That there hasn't been a post that has gotten more views or comments than the notorious Chocolate Dump Cake. Something about it has attracted and captivated..four or five people.

So in trying to recreate that same experience, I'm sharing a new super EASY recipe for Molten Chocolate Cupcakes. Let's face it- the best dessert any restaurant ever has is that chocolate cake that's all heated up and oozes out molten chocolate lava. In the kitchen of those restaurants, they just put a piece of cake in the microwave to heat it up and then watch as you 'ooh' and 'ahh' over it. (You can thank my previous work experience for that nugget of insider knowledge) This is exactly that, but in a more impressive way that you can make on your own. This recipe will make your friends think you're moonlighting as a part time pastry chef, and if they don't, then that's the last time you share your cupcakes with them! I mean, come on, could you give some positive feedback at least once if your life Karen?!

The recipe is from Betty Crocker, you can find it online here: http://www.bettycrocker.com/recipes/molten-chocolate-cupcakes

I made this before I started the blog, so there's only one picture. After spreading the icing on the cupcakes I dusted them with powdered sugar, but they'd also be good with whipped cream and strawberries or vanilla bean ice cream. The one thing I should mention is that you shouldn't skip on the whipping cream for this recipe, it's a must!

Try it out and let me know how it goes! In the meantime, I've got a wicked recipe for cookies and creme cupcakes that I just finished and will be posting about soon. Here's a sample of what the post contains: oreos, self rising flour, and a failed attempt at streamlining (and possibly inventing?) cookies and creme icing. Discuss!
