Rolo Cupcakes

Pin It
My mini candy obsession continues with Rolos this time.
Chocolate, caramel and more chocolate - yum!


















Cupcakes:
Hershey's Perfectly Chocolate Cake recipe or use your favorite box mix
1 bag Rolo minis
Hershey's Hot Fudge Sauce
Hershey's Caramel Sauce

Preheat oven to 350 degrees and place liners in cupcake pans.
Follow directions for Hershey's Perfectly Chocolate Cake for cupcakes.

While cupcakes are baking, pour some caramel sauce (about 3/4 cup)  into a measuring cup or bowl and heat in the microwave for 30-40 seconds.  Stir.  Pour the warm caramel into a Wilton squeeze bottle.
As soon as the cupcakes come out of the oven, inject caramel into the center of each cupcake.
Let them completely cool before frosting.

Vanilla Buttercream

3 sticks unsalted butter, at room temperature
6 cups confectioners sugar
1 T whipping cream
1 tsp. vanilla extract

In the bowl of your stand mixer add butter and mix for about 1 minute.
Add confectioners sugar one cup at a time.
Add whipping cream and vanilla extract and beat until light and fluffy.
Pipe frosting onto cooled cupcakes.
 
Top with a Rolo mini and drizzle with caramel and chocolate fudge.
