Unreal Candy Coated Cupcakes

I have a serious sweet tooth.
It’s no secret.
So when these fabulous Unreal Candy packets showed up at my doorstep, I knew I had to make something fun with them that would allow me to enjoy a sweet treat here and there and not eat the whole bag in one night!
Anyone else have that problem?

So I decided to go with candy coated cupcakes, because we are about to go into the sweetest, #allthecandy week of the year, I thought – why not add extra candy on top of an already delicious cupcake creation?

How To:

 

 

 

 

  1. Preheat the oven to 350 F. Line one 12-cup standard muffin tin with cupcake liners.
  2. Whisk 1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour, 1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder and 1/3 teaspoon salt together in a medium bowl.
  3. In another medium bowl, beat 2 large eggs and 2/3 cup sugar with an electric mixer until light and foamy, about 2 minutes.
  4. While beating, gradually pour in 6 oz, unsalted, melted butter and then 2 teaspoons pure vanilla extract.
  5. While mixing slowly, add half the dry ingredients. Then add all 1/2 cup Stonyfield organic yogurt and follow with the rest of the dry ingredients. Take care not to overmix the batter.
  6. Pour half the batter in the cupcake liners – add in the Unreal Candy of your choice and cover with the rest of the batter – I did a variety of the dark + milk chocolate peanut butter cups, cut in half and a sprinkling of the milk chocolate candies
  7. Bake 18 to 20 minutes. Cool the cupcakes on a rack in the tin for 10 minutes, and then remove from the tin. Cool on the rack completely. Sprinkle with additional Unreal Candy as desired + Icing with the flavor of your choice

I loved for this post that I got to partner with Unreal Candy and try out their gluten free, fair trade, non-GMO treats. So delicious and perfect for Halloween next week! I was also excited about making cupcakes with Stonyfield organic yogurt instead of milk – it was a nice way to make the cupcakes even creamier and delicious!
