Milky Way Cupcakes

{This is a sponsored post}

If you've recently walked down the candy aisle at your local grocery store or Walmart, you may have noticed these awesome little bags from MARS candy. MARS has taken some of your favorite chocolate candies like MILKY WAY, 3 MUSKETEERS and SNICKERS and has turned them into bite sized snacks. They are the perfect size to add to most of your favorite dessert recipes. I'm sure you'll find many ways to #EatMoreBites.

I headed to my nearest Walmart to purchase some MARS bites to add to my cupcakes. I found these new and awesome MARS bites in the candy aisle only with other MARS candy items. I picked up a bag of 3 MUSKETEERS, MILKY WAY and MILKY WAY Simply Caramel.

These cupcakes feature a chocolate and caramel surprise in the center. All you need is your favorite cupcake recipe and a bag of MILKY WAY Simply Caramel bites.

1 box of yellow cake mix or your favorite cupcake recipe
MILKY WAY Simply Caramel Bites
Chocolate frosting

  • Prepare cake mixed as instructed.
  • Pour cake mix in a cupcake pan. Filling 2/3 of the way.
  • Add a MILKY WAY bite to the top of the cupcakes. No need to push the candy into the cupcake, the chocolate will sink in on its own.
  • Bake your cupcakes as directed. 
  • Top with Chocolate frosting.
These taste the best when they are warm and fresh from the oven. You get a warm and gooey chocolate and caramel center.
