Seriously you guys 😋😋 These cupcakes are one of those treats that will surprise you 😉 I mean you don’t think you know what your going to taste until you take that first bite! Ohh man are they scrumptious! 🙂
You would think that Bounty chocolates pair best with chocolate but damn these vanilla versions are good!
I mean just look at this super luscious and thick frosting 😉
I had tons of fun making these. I chopped up some Bounty bars and added them to the batter which just happens to be my favourite buttery vanilla cupcake batter.
Then I frosted them with my favourite cream cheese frosting, I don’t know there’s just something about Bountys and cream cheese frosting!!, and topped with more Bounty pieces. They were devoured instantly! 😉
Definitely one of my all time favourite cupcakes! Try them for yourselves and see how delicious they are 🙂 🙂
