Crunchie Cupcakes

Crunkie CupcakesToday I made Crunchie Cupcakes! They were super easy since it was just smashed up Crunchie bars added to a plain vanilla mixture. While I was making these I ate so many Crunchie pieces and I realised that it had been absolutely AGES since I had eaten one and I’d forgotten how much I liked them.

Anyway, the cupcakes themselves were a little disappointing because the honeycomb had completely melted into the cake when I was expecting there to be pieces, but apart from that they were alright.

Crunchie Cupcakes:


225g of unsalted butter, softened

225g of caster sugar

225g of self-raising flour

1 tsp of baking powder

4 eggs

1 tsp of vanilla essence

2 King Sized Crunchie bars smashed into little pieces

1. Preheat the oven to 175C (350F) and line tins with baking cases.

2. Sift the flour and the baking powder together in a large bowl.

3. Add the butter, sugar, eggs, and vanilla and beat until just combined.

4. Stir in Crunchie pieces.

5. Fill the cases about halfway and bake for 20 minutes.

Allow to cool completely before decorating.

Makes 18

Chocolate Buttercream


375g of icing sugar, sieved

225g unsalted butter, softened

100g Cocoa, sieved

Pinch of salt

1. Sieve together the icing sugar and cocoa in a bowl

2. Add the butter and beat together until smooth.

Pipe (or spread) onto cakes and top each one with a piece of Crunchie bar.

The Vanilla Cupcake recipe I used is from 500 Cupcakes by Fergal Connolly.

    I’ve been kinda slack the last month on keeping up to date with reading blogs so I’m playing catch up.

    Your crunchie cupcakes look so yummy! how much does it suck that the honeycomb just melts into them though. My friend tried making pinky cupcakes and she put mini marshmallows all through the cake mix, but it just melted away while they baked. Doh!

    I know, it’s sucks. I also tried making Pineapple Lump Cupcakes but the pineapple stuff just disappeared completely and left all the chocolate behind. 😦

    i know this is a late reply, but i had the same problem with the yummy stuff melting away.

    i haven’t tried it yet, but i’m thinking if you make mini cupcakes they dont need baking as long and the filling is hopefully more willing to hang around where it should. it make sense in my head, but of course i’d have to try it, i hope it works!!! 🙂
