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.

What’s even better is the recipe is SUPER simple. And can be made and eaten in under an hour…


So let’s discuss the virtues of these Devil’s Food Snickers Cheesecake Cupcakes.

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…

And simply whisk until combined!

Fill your cupcake liner half full…

Then add a heaping tablespoon of the cheesecake mixer …

After they’re baked they will look like this…

And when they’ve cooled go ahead and add some hot fudge sauce.  I mean, only if you want…

And I think it’s pretty to top them with some more chopped Snickers.

  1. Another one to add to the must bake list. I love the combination of everything in these and the hot fudge sauce instead of buttercream sounds divine =)

  4. 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.

  5. Cathy Pollak ~ Noble Pig

    You would have to lock me up and away from these before I ate every single one. You are like a dessert temptress!

  6. I have been making a very similar version for years….but I now “cheat” and use a cake mix from the store…so yummy!
