Baking | Twix Cupcakes


Hello Lovelies,

It feels as though I've not baked in a loooong time so today I thought I would bake some cupcakes but didn't know what kind to make. I even tweeted that I had lost all inspiration so hopefully chocolate would help and it did! I made a wee cup of tea and had a twix with it whilst thinking what I could do and thought, what about Twix cupcakes?! Had never seen them before or even thought to do that but I am so glad I did - Yum Yum Yum! Want to find out how I made them? keep on reading....
 


You Will Need:160g Unsalted Butter
160g Caster Sugar
3 Medium Eggs
160g Self-Raising Flour
1tbs Vanilla Extract
4 x Twix

Buttercream Icing
150g Unsalted Butter
400g Icing Sugar
50g Cocoa Powder

To Make:1) Pre-heat oven to 150c and line a muffin tray with 12 cases

2) Mix together your butter and caster sugar until pale, I have a mixer which is SO much easier, I mix it for around 5-8 mins

3) Lightly whisk together your eggs and vanilla extract and pour into your butter mixture

4) sieve your flour and add to your butter and egg mixture and mix well until pale and smooth

5) pour equally into your cupcake cases and divide your Twix's into 3 and pop a bit on top of your mixture pressing in so it goes into the middle

6) Bake for around 10-12 mins until just cooked so they are still pale

7) To make your buttercream icing, simply mix your butter, icing sugar and cocoa powder together until smooth and lump free, be sure to sieve your icing sugar and cocoa powder beforehand.

8) once your cupcakes have cooled down, pipe your icing on and top it off with a little bit twix!



What are your thoughts on these cupcakes? I personally think they tasted amazing and if you eat them whilst still warm the caramel of the twix just melts in your mouth!
