Snickerdoodle Cupcakes – All of your favorite snickerdoodle flavors in cupcake form! An amazing sweet treat perfect for a party or dessert tonight!

I just LOVE snickerdoodles! They are one of my favorite cookies to make and I’ve used the flavors in other recipes like my Snickerdoodle Iced Coffee and Snickerdoodle Mug Cake! I ended up making these cupcakes for a party when I was in New Jersey a few weeks back along with some awesome champagne and mimosa cupcakes!

These would also be amazing with some caramelized apples on top to give them a fun fall twist!
