Game days just seem better when a dessert is involved.  My husband doesn’t care for sweets that much, but he is a big fan of Snickers candy bars!  I made these Snickers Ice Cream Cupcakes and they were a big hit with the whole family!  The combo of Snickers Bites, peanut butter ice cream, chocolate cake, chocolate shell and caramel whipped cream is amazing!   These are perfect for game day or anytime as a snack!  Just keep them in the freezer until you are ready to serve them.

Start out your cupcakes by baking a small amount of cake batter for the bottom of the cakes.  Once they are cooled you will place the snickers bites inside the cupcake liners.

  • 2 7 oz. bags of Snickers bites
  • 1 box of chocolate cake mix and ingredients to make cupcakes from the box
  • 3 cups of vanilla ice cream
  • 3 tbsp. of peanut butter
  • 2 tbsp. of Caramel sauce
  • 1 cup of heavy cream
  • Chocolate shell
  • Caramel sauce for drizzle
  1. Preheat oven to 350. Place cupcake liners in a muffin tin and place 1 Tbsp. of chocolate cake batter in the bottom of each cupcake liner. Bake at 350 for around 11 to 15 minutes or until toothpick comes out cleanly. Leave the cupcakes in the muffin pan until ready to serve.
  2. Meanwhile mix the Vanilla Ice cream and peanut butter in a medium mixing bowl and then place back into the freezer until you are ready to fill the cupcakes.
  3. Once the cupcakes are completely cooled add 4 snickers bites on top of each cupcake. Then fill the cupcakes to the top of the liner with the ice cream mixture. Keep the cupcakes in the pan and place in the freezer to completely freeze.
  4. Next make the caramel whipped cream for the top of the cupcakes. Mix the heavy whipping cream, powdered sugar and caramel sauce in a medium mixing bowl and beat on high until stiff peaks form.
  5. Once you are ready to serve:
  6. Take cupcakes out from their liners and cover the tops with the chocolate shell. Pipe on the whipped cream (I piped the whipped cream with tip 2A) and drizzle a little caramel sauce on top. Place half of a snickers bite on each cupcake. Serve immediately... within 10 minutes of taking them out of the freezer.

    I made these yesterday & they were a hit! I’ll make them again but next time I think I’ll skip the snickers bites on the inside bc I really don’t like frozen hard chocolates & candies. I think, except for not having peanuts in it, it will still taste like a snickers cupcake w/out the frozen ones on the inside. I’ll still use the snickers bites to garnish. Overall I loved these! Great recipe! Btw, I didn’t see anywhere that you said how many the recipe made. I’m guessing it was for 12? I doubled the ice cream & whipped cream parts, and one bottle of the magic shell was exactly enough to make 24. Thanks again!

    You mention powdered sugar when whipping the cream with the caramel sauce, but it isn’t in the ingredients list.
