Last weekend marked the last of our out of town trips for a while. We went up to northern California and explored the Russian River and Petaluma Valley. It was so beautiful up there but it still felt like summer. With fall coming, I am getting back into the mood of baking cupcakes again.
So I made these.
With one of my favorite candies. Whoa! As I was typing this a Kit Kat commercial came on TV!
This recipe uses a boxed cake mix, I chose a white cake mix.
Kit Kat Cupcakes
1 package boxed cake mix (I used white), plus ingredients per package directions.
3/4 cup chopped Kit Kat Bars.
Crush Kit Kat bars with a sharp knife.
Prepare cake mix per package directions. Gently fold Kit Kat pieces into batter. Pour into prepared cupcake pan and bake per package directions. Be sure to check the cupcakes as they may take a couple minutes longer (depending on oven) with the added chocolate.
See how the cupcakes are full of candy bursts? Honestly, these are good plain. But I topped them off with Buttercream frosting and a piece of the candy.
Kit Kats are one of my favorite candies. What is yours?
