Sinful Butterfinger Cupcakes

These sinful cupcakes will be the most enjoyable thing you ever indulge in...they are rich, moist and extremely tasty!!! I had to give half the batch away, for fear that I wouldn't be able to contain myself with them sitting on the counter.....they REALLY ARE THAT GOOD!

Sinful Butterfinger Cupcakes

1 chocolate cake mix
3 eggs
1/2 c. water
1/4 c. milk
1/2 c. oil
1 t. vanilla
1 c. sour cream
1/2 can sweetened condensed milk

Caramel Sauce:
6 T. butter
3/4 c brown sugar
1 T water
pinch of salt
1/3 c + 1 T evaporated milk
1 T vanilla

Butterfinger Frosting
4 butterfinger bars
3/4 c butter
4 oz. cream cheese
2 1/2 c. powdered sugar
1 T milk

Caramel Sauce:
Heat butter, brown sugar, water and salt. Boil for 5 minutes, stirring constantly to keep from sticking to the bottom of the pan. Remove from heat, add evaporated milk and vanilla. Stir and set aside.

Place eggs, water, milk, and oil together in a medium bowl. Beat until well mixed. Stir in vanilla, sour cream and cake mix. Place cupcake liners in muffin tin and fill 3/4 full. Bake for 13-15 minutes or until done. Cool before adding caramel sauce to middle.

Mix sweetened condensed milk and caramel sauce together. Stir until completely combined. Pour into a squeeze bottle with a small tip. Insert tip into the top of the cupcake and squeeze a small amount of caramel into the center (kind of like your giving the cupcake a "vaccination"). Repeat until each cupcake has had "its shot". Set aside.

Unwrap butterfingers and place in a large ziplock bag. Slightly crush with a rolling pin. YOU DON'T want powder, just smaller pieces. Set aside. Beat butter and cream cheese for 5 minutes. Add powered sugar a little at a time. When you have met your desired consistency, stir in butterfinger crumbs with a spoon, just until mixed. Pipe onto cooled cupcakes (I use a large ziplock bag with a small piece of the corner snipped off...works like a charm)....AND THEN sit in a chair, with a cupcake in hand, and slowly devour this scrumptious little treat, a treat that will make you feel as though you were in heaven.
Happy Valentines DAY!!!
