Butterfinger Cupcakes

Butterfinger Cupcakes - yellow cake loaded with Butterfinger candy bars topped with a homemade Butterfinger buttercream. These cupcakes are sinful! I had zero self-control around these cupcakes. SOOOO good!

Run, don't walk, to the kitchen and make these cupcakes! Chicken Legs took one bite and said they were the best cupcake I've ever made. That is one heck of a statement coming from him!

These cupcakes are loaded with Butterfingers. I happen to LOVE Butterfingers, so that isn't a problem for me! I cheated and used a cake mix for the cupcakes. I made my favorite buttercream frosting and added crushed Butterfingers. Sinful! We could have eaten all 24 in one night, but we decided to give most of these away to friends and family.

Here is a tip for crushing the Butterfingers. I froze the Butterfingers for about 30 minutes and transferred them to a freezer ziplock bag. I hit them with my meat pounder. They were crushed perfectly!

Butterfinger Cupcakes
24 cupcakes
(Printable Recipe)
  • 1 box yellow cake mix (I recommend Duncan Hines), plus ingredients to make cake
  • 4 crushed butterfingers

  • 1 cup butter, room temperature
  • 6 cups powdered sugar (may need a little more)
  • 1/2 cup whipping cream
  • 2 tsp pure vanilla extract
  • 3 crushed butterfingers
Prepare cake mix according to package directions. Stir in crushed butterfingers. Pour batter into lined cupcake pans. Bake according to package directions. Cool completely.

To make the buttercream: In the bowl of an electric mixer fitted with the paddle attachment, cream butter until smooth and creamy, 2 to 3 minutes. With mixer on low speed, add 6 cups sugar, whipping cream, and vanilla; mix until light and fluffy. Stir in crushed Butterfingers and mix on low for 1 minute. If necessary, gradually add more powdered sugar to reach desired consistency.
