Butterfinger Cupcakes -Vegan & Gluten Free!

Oh yes, decadence. I don’t go there a lot but there was a birthday and that’s always a damn good excuse. I saw a few vegan recipes floating around and settled on the one from Not Your Parents’ Granola.

I started off making the candy. It’s super easy, don’t be intimidated. As with the last recipe I didn’t bother dipping it in chocolate. I had other chocolately plans. The recipe for the candy (found here) also comes with a cupcake recipe but I wasn’t feeling chocolate cupcakes. I made the light peanut butter cupcakes but made them gluten free with Bob’s Red Mill Gluten Free Baking Mix. Honestly, they were looking a bit soupy so I ended up adding the whole bag of flour to the mixture to get the texture I like for cupcakes since this was originally a cake.

Honestly, the cupcakes were a bit crumbly. Why? Well, first of all I probably added a bit too much flour. But then I pushed the envelope and used a pastry tip to fill them with chocolate buttercream. Yeah. Oh, don’t worry, that wasn’t enough so I topped them with dark chocolate ganache before the candy was crushed on top.  The structural integrity of these cupcakes was compromised for the sake of a flavour explosion. And everyone who had one was completely fine with that sacrifice.

Beware, this recipe made 24 cupcakes. That’s a lot of sugar bombs to share. I hope that my new and old friends really liked them though!
