Kit Kat Cupcakes

Pin It
Give me a break, give me a break, break me off a piece of that Kit Kat bar.
Remember that 90's jingle?
Well now you don't have to break off a piece of your Kit Kat bar to share it with a friend
because they come in adorable mini size.  They're unwrapped and ready to eat!

Whoever came up with the idea of mini candy bars was a genius.
Minis are SO much cuter and make the best cupcake toppers!

Kit Kat Cupcakes

Cupcakes:
1 box Devil's Food chocolate cake mix
4 eggs
1 cup buttermilk
1/3 cup canola oil
1 bag of Kit Kat Minis for garnish

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.  Line pan with cupcake liners.
Sift cake mix into a large mixing bowl.
Add eggs, buttermilk and oil.  Using an electric mixer, mix until ingredients are all combined.
Using a large cookie scoop, fill liners 2/3 full.  Bake for 18-20 minutes or until done.
Cool in pan for a few minutes and then place the cupcakes on a wire rack to continue cooling.

Vanilla Buttercream

3 sticks unsalted butter, at room temperature
6 cups confectioners sugar
1 T whipping cream
1 tsp. vanilla extract

In the bowl of your stand mixer add butter and mix for about 1 minute.
Add confectioners sugar one cup at a time.
Add whipping cream and vanilla extract and beat until light and fluffy.

Pipe frosting onto cooled cupcakes (I use a Wilton 1M tip)
Top with chopped mini Kat Kat bars and one mini Kit Kat.
