Starring Rolls Butterfinger Cupcake Recipe

Starring Roles Cafe may RIP but the legend of their Butterfinger Cupcakes lives on!

The Butterfinger Cupcakes at Starring Rolls Cafe in Disney Hollywood Studios have always been a fan favorite.  Now that the legendary cafe is closed I am not sure where to find the cupcakes anymore.  Last year when I was on a baking kick I decided to take my chances and give a recipe I found online a try.  You can find the original recipe posted over on A Disney Mom’s Thoughts. I’ve added any updates/changes to suit my taste.

Starring Rolls  Cafe Butterfinger Cupcakes

Cupcake Ingredients

1 box Devil’s Food Cake mix, plus ingredients to make cake
1 batch butter cream frosting
1 can fudge frosting
4 cups chocolate chips
6 Tbsp canola oil 3
King Size Butterfingers (or a bag of miniatures)

Quick Buttercream Frosting Ingredients:

3 cups confectioners' sugar
1 cup butter
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 to 2 tablespoons whipping cream


1.  Prepare cupcakes as stated on the box. Let cool completely.  This is a good time to make your frosting, since you will have approximately an hour of baking and cooling.  (You can also purchase frosting or use a favorite recipe.)

2.  Using a sharp knife, cut a cone shape out on top of the cupcake. Cut halfway into the cupcake. Remove the cake and fill the hole with fudge frosting. Add the cake you removed to the top of the cupcake, with the pointy cone end sticking up.

3. Ice your cupcakes. Let the frosting set for 30 minutes. 

4.  While the frosting is setting, use a food processor to crush up Butterfingers. ( Frozen Butterfingers work best.)  If you do not have a food processor, use the flat side of a meat tenderizer while Butterfingers are still in their packaging.

5.  Combine the chocolate chips and oil in a medium microwave-safe bowl. Heat on high for 1 minute. Stir and continue to heat at 30 second intervals until completely melted. Allow to cool for 5-10 minutes before using.

6. Dip the frosted cupcakes into the chocolate.  I used a spoon to hold the frosting into place on top of cupcake. Immediately coat the cupcake with the crumbled Butterfinger bits.. Repeat until all cupcakes are dipped and covered.

7.  Refrigerate approximately 1 hour to allow the chocolate to set.

Enjoy! Nom!
