This Devil’s Food Snickers Cheesecake Cupcake recipe is easy and fantastic!

These cupcakes are against the grain for me…Notice there’s no giant swirl of frosting up there? Really, what’s a cupcake without a giant swirl of frosting? But just stick with me here.

These cupcakes have something even better baked inside…cheesecake. And Snickers.

I’ll wait a second while you let that sink in.

First and foremost, if you aren’t a Snickers girl or have a nut allergy or something you could totally just sub in chocolate chips or another favorite candy… mix and match.

But I used Snickers.  Because you have the salty/sweet…caramel/nuts. YES.

Just chop up about a cup of the candy you are using…

Then in a medium bowl use your hand mixer to make your simple cheesecake filling…cream cheese, brown sugar, an egg and vanilla…

Fold the candy in at the end.

Then in a separate bowl whisk together the ingredients for the cake portion.

It’s SUCH an easy Devil’s Food cupcake recipe…no mixer needed at all.  Just a whisk and a bowl.

Also, it’s an egg-free Devil’s Food recipe… I’m not forgetting the egg!

Sift the dry ingredients into the wet…

    Wow! These do look dangerous, but oh so delicious! Love that you combined cake, cheesecake and snickers into a simple treat!

  2. I’m normally not a huge cupcake fan (I only get/make them if I want frosting!), but these are calling my name! Candy, cheesecake, and cake all in one. Yesssss.
