Milky Way Cupcakes

Halloween has come and gone and I bet you’re left with lingering candy. So, what do you do with those massive quantities of leftover candy? We bag it up, stick it in the freezer and incorporate it into our baking.

To make these Milky Way Cupcakes, I took our regular box of cake mix and gave it a twist by using leftover Milky Way bars. The caramel and chocolate will get melty and gooey, keeping the cupcakes super moist. We love how these turned out and we know your family will be fans too!

Milky Way Cupcakes



  • 1 box of milk chocolate cake mix – each brand is different. Make sure you read and ingredients on the package to bake as directed
  • 1 cup of frozen chopped Milky Way candy bars
  • 1 box of instant vanilla pudding mix
  • 1 cup of cold milk
  • 1 tub of Cool Whip


Preheat your oven and prepare cake mix as directed on the box. Pour batter into cupcake liners, filing them about half way full. To each liner add about 1 tbsp of the chopped candy bars. Bake according to the chart on the back on the cake mix box.

To a small prep bowl, whisk together pudding mix with milk. Once the mixture becomes thick, gently fold the Cool Whip (a couple scoops at a time).

Remove the cupcakes from the oven and allow to cool on a rack for about 2 hours. Frost cupcakes as you wish by using a pastry knife or piping bag. You could top off each cupcake with a drizzle of caramel and chocolate.
