Ingredients

  • 1

    cup sugar

  • 1

    cup buttermilk

  • 1/4

    cup canola oil

  • 1

    teaspoon vanilla extract

  • 1-1/2

    cups all-purpose flour

  • 1/3

    cup baking cocoa

  • 1

    teaspoon baking soda

  • 1/2

    teaspoon salt

  • FILLING:

  • 6

    ounces fat-free cream cheese

  • 2

    tablespoons confectioners' sugar

  • 1

    egg

  • 2

    Snickers candy bars (2.07 ounces each), finely chopped

  • FROSTING:

  • 1/3

    cup butter, cubed

  • 1/3

    cup packed brown sugar

  • 3

    tablespoons fat-free milk

  • 1-1/2

    cups confectioners' sugar

Directions

In a large bowl, beat the sugar, buttermilk, oil and vanilla until well blended. Combine the flour, cocoa, baking soda, and salt; gradually beat into sugar mixture until blended. For filling, in a small bowl, beat cream cheese and confectioners' sugar until light and fluffy. Add egg; mix well. Stir in the candy bars. Fill paper-lined muffin cups one-third full with batter. Drop filling by tablespoonfuls into the center of each cupcake (cups will be about half full). Bake at 350 degrees F for 20-25 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the filling comes out clean. Cool for 10 minutes before removing from pans to wire racks to cool completely. For frosting, in a small saucepan, melt butter. Stir in brown sugar. Bring to a boil, cook for two minutes, stirring occasionally. Remove from the heat; stir in the milk, then confectioners' sugar. Cool until frosting reaches spreading consistency. Frost cupcakes. Yield: 1-1/2 dozen.
