They aren't really related to any book I've read recently (unless you figure in that Kit-Kats were my favorite candy bar growing up, and I've been reading a lot of memoirs about childhood lately, but that's a stretch). Basically, I've just been craving chocolate lately and while I hate to stray away from what this blog is for, I thought I could still share the recipe and a few mouthwatering photos with you!
I got the recipe from here: http://tastykitchen.com/recipes/desserts/crunchy-kit-kat-cupcakes/
But like I usually do, I played with it a bit. I added a few sprinkles of just regular sugar to the batter and coated the bottom of the liners with powder sugar. I think doing this makes them taste more homemade.
I did, however, make a rookie mistake of cooking them too long. I did 23 minutes, peeped in the oven and thought they still looked too gooey. I ended up with slightly burnt bottoms, but still completely edible and delicious cupcakes! The kit kats on the inside are really what make these awesome!
