My latest addiction has been making cupcakes using our favourite chocolate bars. I recently made Reese’s Peanut Butter Cupcakes and they were a hit. I saw the Skor Toffee Bits in the baking aisle at the grocery store and thought they would be good melted on top of a chocolate cupcake. Add some chopped up Skor bars to the cupcake batter and you have a divine tasting batch of Skor Cupcakes.
They are really simple to make. I used a Swiss Chocolate cake mix, but you could use any kind of chocolate cake mix you have on hand. They are so rich and if you are having a chocolate craving eat one of these. Sweet and satisfying!
- 1 package of chocolate cake mix
- 2 Skor chocolate bars, roughly chopped
- 1 package of Skor Toffee Bits
- 3 tbsp. whipping cream
- 3 tbsp. butter
- 1/2 cup icing sugar
- 1/2 tsp. vanilla
To prepare cupcakes:
1. Prepare cake mix according to the package directions.
2. Mix in chopped Skor chocolate bars.
3. Pour into muffin tins and bake for the recommended time (and temperature) as on the cake mix box.
4. Allow to cool completely before coating with the toffee glaze.
To prepare glaze:
1. Combine Skor Toffee Bits (set aside about 1/4 to 1/2 cup for topping) and cream in a deep bowl. Microwave on high for 1 minute. Stir.
2. Add butter and microwave on high for 1 minute. Stir.
3. Add in icing sugar and stir till smooth.
4. Spread glaze over cupcakes and top with Skor Toffee Bits. Cool to allow glaze to solidify.
