Cooking with Cadbury – Caramel Nibbles Cupcakes

The boys love baking and they love chocolate (well okay, I love chocolate too!) So when we were asked if we would like to have a go at making so Cadbury’s Caramel Nibbles Cupcakes it was an easy decision to make.


We were kindly sent two packs of Cadbury’s Caramel Nibbles which are required for the recipe and away we went.   

To make Caramel Nibbles Cupcakes you will need:

·         1 x 175g pkt Caramel Nibbles
·         180g caster sugar
·         100g butter
·         100ml milk
·         220g plain flour, sifted
·         1 ½ tsp baking powder
·         3 large eggs, beaten
·         2 tsps vanilla extract
Icing ingredients
·         1 x 175g pkt Caramel Nibbles
·         180ml double cream
·         200g icing sugar, sifted

·                     Edible gold glitter (optional)

1.       Preheat the oven to 160c Fan/180c/Gas Mark 4. Cream together the butter and sugar with an electric mixer, add the vanilla extract and mix well. Then add the eggs, flour, baking powder, milk and mix until thoroughly combined.
2.       Take the first packet of Caramel Nibbles and melt to a paste in a bowl over a pan of hot water. Add the paste to the cupcake mix and mix well with an electric mixer to distribute the caramel loveliness thoroughly. Place cupcake wrappers into your cupcake pan and fill each wrapper with cupcake mixture 2/3rds full.
3.       Bake in the oven for 18-20 minutes until golden on top then allow to cool for a couple of minutes in the tray before transferring to a wire cooling rack.
4.       For the frosting take the second packet of Caramel Nibbles, take out 12 Caramel Nibbles and set aside. From the remaining Nibbles measure out 120g and chop into small rough pieces to make the frosting.
5.       Place the double cream into a pan over a low heat. Add in the chopped Caramel Nibbles and continue to heat gently, stirring to melt the chocolate pieces. Keep the mixture moving with a spatula to encourage the pieces to melt. This will take about 4 minutes over a low heat. When all the pieces are melted down, remove from the heat and place in a bowl to cool. Cover with food wrap, pressing it down onto the surface of the Caramel mixture to stop a skin forming.
6.       When your icing mix has cooled, completely transfer to a large bowl and add 200g of sifted icing sugar. Mix well with an electric mixer. If the mixture is slightly too runny, add a little more icing sugar to stiffen.

7.       Now we’re ready to go! Spread the frosting on top of the cupcakes or pipe for a professional finish. Add one Caramel Nibble to the top from those you set aside earlier. Finally a sprinkling of edible gold glitter!

The boys and  I found the recipe easy to follow and they loved helping to sieve and mix the ingredients.  Here is our finished result what do you think? 

 I think I need to invest in a good piping bag so I can make my cakes look more professional.  But these are certainly very delicious cakes and did not last more than a day.  We made 24 cakes from the ingredients.  Why not have a go and see what you think.
