Cupcakes make me happy. Cupcakes with chocolate cake, vanilla buttercream, Heath toffee bits and salted caramel make me even happier! These were some of the best tasting box cake cupcakes I have ever made and I owe it all to Julie of Joy's Hope. I found Julie's wonderful blog a couple of weeks ago and printed out this recipe as soon as I found it. The cupcakes were super easy to make and they taste fabulous! I used my go-to buttercream frosting recipe. You can find the recipe here. Make this recipe soon and see how happy cupcakes can make you too :)
| Salted Caramel Cupcakes|
from Joy's Hope
One Box Chocolate Cake Mix and ingredients to make it
4-5 Skor Bars, crushed (I used Heath Toffee Bits)
Hershey's Caramel Ice Cream Topping
Vanilla Buttercream Frosing
Bake cupcakes according to package directions.
When the cupcakes are almost done you will make the salted caramel.
Pour caramel into a measuring cup or bowl. Add 1/2 teaspoon of sea salt per 8 oz. of caramel.
Warm in the microwave for one minute. Stir. Pour the warm salted caramel in to a squeeze bottle.
As soon as the cupcakes come out of the oven, inject caramel into each one. Move them to a cooling rack.
At this point you can begin smashing your Skor bars. Since I couldn't find them at my Wal-mart I just used the Heath Toffee bits. After the cupcakes have cooled, frost them with buttercream frosting, sprinkle with the candy bits and then drizzle the salted caramel happiness on top. Makes 24 delicious cupcakes.
Don't they look yummy!
