Best cupcakes I’ve ever made and best cupcakes I’ve ever eaten. I know, I know, bold statement, right?
So here’s the thing, my awesome sister made these for a friend’s birthday and I ate 3 that night. THREE. They were so delicious that I ended up making them a few weeks later.
Here’s where you can find the recipe – http://sallysbakingaddiction.com/2012/06/15/chocolate-fudge-cupcakes-with-salted-caramel-frosting/ my sister made a few small and very helpful tweaks.
First, she doubled the caramel sauce. Since I doubled the recipe (which produced about 52 cupcakes), I would triple the caramel sauce, so when it’s time for the icing you have plenty!
She also added semi sweet chocolate chips. I used about 1 1/2 cups in each of my batters.
Now, when it comes to cooking time, be careful. The recipe says 20-25 minutes. Every oven is different. I checked mine at 19 minutes and they were done. Of course, I did the toothpick test and they came out clean, except for a little chocolate from the chips – but no batter. I would air on the side of caution, no one likes a dry cupcake. But of course you don’t want them to be raw either, so use the toothpick test and you should be fine.
Cute cupcake toppers make it even more fun!
