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.

I am an all food loving chocoholic. Chocolate is AHHmazing! My parents are from England and the rest of my family lives there so I was privleged to grow up eating some of the best Cadbury's Chocolate!! My mother was always in the kitchen baking and cooking, and it was only natural I too would love it. I also love to travel (especially to places with good food)!! I am extremely blessed for my family, boyfriend and friends. I love my life!
