My daughter, Sydney, LOVES these cupcakes. She said, “I love the way the chocolate melts in your mouth and I especially love to dig for the candy bar at the bottom of the cupcake. It’s like finding hidden treasure.”

Frosting suggestions: Chocolate Fudge Frosting, Peanut Butter Frosting, or Caramel Frosting.



Leftover Halloween candy bars are perfect for this recipe.
