Chocolate cupcakes with Salted Caramel Frosting

Chocolate and Caramel. I think I need to stop talking about these two ingredients but when put together make the most amazing, spectacular, wonderful, tasty, creamy, dreamy, delicious combination. Do you get my point?  I like caramel and chocolate together. Okay let’s be honest I don’t like it I LOVE it!

I have this love/hate relationship with cupcakes. They are individual sized but I don’t usually eat a ton of them in one sitting. I don’t know if its mental or what because I can eat a WHOLE batch of chocolate chip cookies, I can eat a WHOLE batch of toffee brittle or a WHOLE batch of  Biscoff blondies.

Enough of my eating disorders. I decided to make cupcakes but I made a half batch. The recipe is for a full batch- just cut everything in half if you want. Obvi you know I made Chocolate and Caramel Cupcakes with Salted Caramel Frosting. It just sounded right to me.

I of course used Amanda’s chocolate cupcake recipe from Kevin & Amanda. It’s seriously the best cupcake recipe ever! I LOVE it!

I am saving the rest of the boxed cake mix and jello for another amazing chocolate cupcake coming soon : )

I love anything salted caramel. Or plain caramel for that matter. And chocolate. So yeah, these cupcakes are a winner in my book. :-) Thanks so much for linking up at What’s In Your Kitchen Wednesday!

I love the combination of salted caramel and chocolate and am actually planning to make some caramel this weekend! And I like the idea of stuffing a chocolate in the middle of a cupcake rather than filling them after baking – less of a hassle. This is totally going into my recipe bucket list!
