Mashup Cupcakes

This recipe came out of our Chocolate Trends report, which says that people are delighting in putting unusual combinations together. It’s the DIY world at its best–playing with food!

"Mashup" is the term given to technology or music that is a hybrid from more than one source. So, in cooking, it's generally ingredients that you wouldn't think to put together--like candy and cake.


  • 1 box chocolate cake mix
  • Chocolate wafer cookies
  • Mini peanut butter Snickers, chopped (or candy of your choice)


  • 1 Preheat oven to 350°F.
  • 2 Line a muffin tin with paper liners.
  • 3 Place a chocolate wafer in the bottom of each liner.
  • 4 Drop a few pieces of candy on top of the chocolate wafers.
  • 5 Make cake mix as indicated on package.
  • 6 Spoon cake batter over the candy to fill the liners.
  • 7 Bake for 10-12 minutes.
