About 2 weeks ago we went live with our new computer medical records charting system at work. The first week was pretty chaotic to say the least. We all survived though and now things are going much better. To celebrate us all making it through our first week I decided to make cupcakes for everyone at work. The recipe I’m going to post here is for 24 cupcakes, but I multiplied it to make 60 and it was very easy! These butterfinger cupcakes are pretty easy to make and absolutely delish! Everyone was raving about them! All 60 of them were gone by 9am!
You Will Need:
– Box of milk chocolate cake mix.
– Ingredients needed to make the boxed cupcakes
-6 full size butterfinger candy bars (Plus some more for garnishing the top)
-1 stick of butter (set out to soften)
– 1/2 cup creamy peanut butter
-1 cup powdered sugar
-4 Tablespoons milk
-Make the cupcakes according to the box directions. Let cupcakes cool completely before icing
-Using a blender crush up the butterfingers into fine pieces. You would also crush them in a bowl or a ziplock bag.
-In an electric mixer bowl beat the stick of butter until soft and creamy
-Add peanut butter to the butter and mix thoroughly.
-Add the crushed butterfingers and mix well
-Slowly add in the powdered sugar
-Finally mix in the milk until the desired consistency is reached. The icing will be a little lumpy because of the butterfinger pieces.
-You could add orange food coloring to the icing to change the color of it.
-When the cupcakes are completely cooled ice them and place a butterfinger piece on top!
