Prep Time



Total Time






bars (2.1 oz each) chocolate-covered crispy peanut-buttery candy
box Betty Crocker® SuperMoist® white cake mix
Water, vegetable oil and egg whites called for on cake mix box
container Betty Crocker® Whipped milk chocolate frosting
  1. Heat oven to 350°F (325°F for dark or nonstick pans). Place mini paper baking cup in each of 70 mini muffin cups. Finely chop enough candy to equal 3/4 cup (about 2 bars).
  2. In large bowl, beat cake mix, water, oil and egg whites with electric mixer on low speed 30 seconds, then on medium speed 2 minutes, scraping bowl occasionally. On low speed, beat in chopped candy just until blended. Divide batter evenly among muffin cups (two-thirds full). Refrigerate any remaining cake batter until ready to use.
  3. Bake 12 to 16 minutes or until toothpick inserted in center comes out clean. Cool 5 minutes; remove from pan to cooling rack. Cool completely, about 30 minutes.
  4. Frost cupcakes with frosting. Coarsely chop remaining candy. Place candy pieces on frosting, pressing down slightly. Store loosely covered.

Make the Most of This Recipe With Tips From The Betty Crocker® Kitchens
Bake these cupcakes, but don't frost them. Place in an airtight container and freeze. A few hours before serving, remove them from the freezer, frost and decorate.
If you have only one pan and a recipe calls for more cupcakes than your pan will make, cover and refrigerate the rest of the batter while baking the first batch. Cool the pan about 15 minutes, then bake the rest of the batter, adding 1 to 2 minutes to the bake time.
