Every year my dad tells us that all he wants for his birthday are some Baby Ruth candy bars so I thought this year I’d kick it up a notch and make some super, easy Baby Ruth Cupcakes to celebrate his birthday.  These cupcakes were absolutely amazing with their Baby Ruth filling and Almond Buttercream frosting topped with caramel sauce and a Baby Ruth candy.

    1. You are too sweet Dorothy! You know that means a ton to me coming from you because every recipe you create does that to me. 🙂

    I love Baby Ruths and I don’t see much of them in baking. Your cupcakes look amazing, especially that frosting.

  3. Oh my word, I am glad these are not in my kitchen right now b/c I would gobble them up! They look amazing! Would love for you to come share this & any other recipes over at Sweet & Savory Saturdays! http://dessertnowdinnerlater.blogspot.com/2013/02/sweet-savory-saturdays-1.html

  4. Those looks great! I bet they would work well with other bite sized candy as well.

  6. I did this with our leftover Halloween candy last year!! YUM!!

    1. It has me thinking of all the possibilites out there. Hehe! I don’t think my pregnancy cravings for sugar are helping either.

  7. Those look SO good, Jenny! Love the topping!

    1. Thanks so much Randi! It killed me not to eat more than one at a time.

  8. These are making my mouth water! Pinning!

  9. Jenn says:

    Oh my! Those look DELCIOUS!!!! My kids thank-you! 🙂

  10. Cindy says:

    These look great! Where do you find the frosting though? Or do you make that? Thank you!

    1. Cindy, The recipe for the Almond Buttercream Frosting is included in the list of ingredients and the steps to take to make the cupcakes. The icing is well worth the work of doing it yourself, rather than buying your own.

  11. Lindsey says:

    Yum! Pinning. I love how the candy just falls to the bottom and is a surprise when you bite into it! 🙂

  12. Oh my goodness…these look so yummy! Make sure you’ve gotten them linked up at my party that’s still up and running!

  15. The sun, wind and rain are all important to the tree as is the dormant winter period
    when the tree does not grow. These bantam pieces
    of sunshine can give a touch of elegance to any interiors and exteriors.
    They carry fruits, vegetables and even construction materials.
