  • INGREDIENTS

    • 1/2 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
    • 3 large eggs
    • 1/2 cup hot water
    • 2 1/4 cups flour
    • 3/4 teaspoon baking soda
    • 3/4 teaspoon baking powder
    • 1/2 teaspoon salt
    • 1 2/3 cup granulated sugar
    • 1 tablespoon vanilla
    • 3/4 cup sour cream
    • 1 cup butter (2 sticks, cut into small pieces)
    • Frosting:
    • 1/2 Cup Room Temperature Salted Butter (1 stick)
    • 1/2 Cup Salted Caramel Sauce
    • 1 Tsp Vanilla Extract
    • 2 Cups Confectioner Sugar

  • Directions: 

    - Preheat oven to 350 F

    - Line cupcake tin with cupcake liners

    - Mix together the flour, baking soda, baking powder, and salt in a medium bowl, set aside

    - Whisk together the unsweetened cocoa powder and the hot water in a small bowl

    - Heat butter and sugar together in a medium bowl on the stove on medium to low heat setting

    - Heat and whisk until they are just combined and melted together

  • - Add in the cocoa powder mixture to the butter and sugar mixture

    - Remove from heat and blend with an electric beater for 4-5 minutes until it is cool

    - Add in eggs one at a time mixing thoroughly between additions

    - Mix in vanilla

  • - Finally alternate adding in the flour and the sour cream in additions of thirds until they are completely blended in

    - Add half of the butter in cupcake tins and put a frozen mini twin in the center of the batter. Pour a little batter over the top of the candy, just enough to cover it

    - Bake in the oven for 15-18 minutes or until a toothpick can be inserted and comes out cleanly

  • Frosting:

    - Cream 1 stick of softened butter for 3-5 minutes until it is light and fluffy

    - Next slowly add in the powdered sugar and mix well between additions

    - Add the vanilla extract and mix it in 

    - Add the Salted caramel next and thoroughly blend it into the frosting

  • - The frosting should be thick but light and airy

    - Place in a piping bag and pipe frosting onto the cupcakes

    - Place the remaining salted caramel sauce in a piping bag with a small circle tip

    - Drizzle slowly over frosted cupcakes

    - Top with a mini twix

    - Store cupcakes in an air tight container
