I made these this morning with my kids (they’re 8) for Valentine’s Day — we were supposed to eat them after dinner but we “tried one to make sure they were good” for breakfast. I’m a sucker. And they are delicious! I made as directed, using yellow cake mix, chocolate frosting and crushed up Butterfinger candy bars. The kids frosted and “decorated” the cupcakes with the Butterfinger. The candy crumbles made the cupcakes seem fancy to the kids but were simple to use and, trust me, every single bit of candy was used.

Made these for my grandchildren when they came to visit. Instant hit with them! I made my own chocolate peanut butter frosting and I have to say, they are yumm yumm!
