What's better than a candy bar baked inside of a cupcake?
Don't worry if you couldn't come up with an answer - neither could I.
True Kit Kat lovers will love their favorite crunchy candy bar even more when it's been baked inside of a rich, dark chocolate cupcake and topped with caramel buttercream. This cupcake might even convert some people into Kit Kat fans. The chocolate wafer candy bar really takes these chocolate cupcakes from ordinary to extraordinary.
Kit Kat Cupcakes
1 cup flour
1 cup plus 2 Tablespoons sugar
1/3 cup plus 2 Tablespoons cocoa
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup butter, melted
1 teaspoon vanilla
1/2 cup hot water
1 snack size kit kat candy bar
1 recipe caramel buttercream
Scoop a small amount of batter into paper lined cupcake tins. Break 1 kit kat in half and place on top of batter.
Fill cupcake liners with remaining batter - two thirds full and bake cupcakes 24 minutes.
Top with a swirl of caramel buttercream and the other half of the kit kat candy bar.
The next time you find yourself baking a batch of chocolate cupcakes, try adding a Kit Kat bar and you'll see what I mean about these little beauties.
