I have to share these salted caramel cupcakes with you!
I have a box of Favourites chocolates on hand and used this as inspiration for these delicious cupcakes. I would love to say that I stuck my hand in the box and picked out a chocolate at random… but really I picked Caramello because it’s my all time favourite, I guess that is why they call it a box of Favourites!
For this I made a half batch of my Rich Butter Cupcake recipe. I topped these cupcakes with my Traditional American Buttercream recipe, but for a twist I added a couple of drops of Roberts Confectionery Salted Caramel flavouring to the buttercream. DO NOT be tempted to add more than a few drops! My first attempt I added 1.5 teaspoons of the flavouring as my motto was “there is no such thing as too much caramel,” I was wrong.
I piped the cupcakes using the Wilton 190 drop flower tip, for soft ruffles. I then topped these delicious cupcakes with Caramello chocolate cut in half and crumbled flake, because why stop at one type of chocolate.
They tasted great and looked fantastic to present to my family.
