I don’t think there will ever come a day that Snickers candy bars don’t remind me of my grandpa. I remember hearing from him over and over growing up that he needed to stop eating as many of the fun-size Snickers bars as he used to….because he was working an office job fitting hearing aids and not out working construction anymore and his old habits were starting to catch up to him 😉
As a kid with a fast metabolism, I kind of shrugged it off – what was he talking about anyway? Once I got into high school and college and wasn’t quite as active on a regular basis….yeah, it started making sense about then. But Snickers bars are soooo addicting! Thank heaven I developed a mild running addiction to balance my poorly-controlled sweet tooth :p
Aaaanyway. Back on track here. The cupcakes in these pictures weren’t my first batch – the first time I made them was with my niece and nephew. We were too busy to bother with pictures. 😉 We were wrangling the piping bag – it was their first time piping frosting – and chatting and having fun; our phones got pretty much ignored. This batch I finally got my act together and got pictures!
This is a great recipe for any beginning cupcake-frosting-pipers – if the piping doesn’t go the way you want, just throw enough chopped peanuts, sprinkles, and Snickers bars on to cover everything up and chalk it up to a good practice run! 😉
