Caramel Almond Chocolate Cupcakes


I can’t believe Cupcake Week is half way over already! Did you know that yesterday was National Cupcake Day? Be sure to check out the debate over at i[heart]cuppycakes and enter in her cupcake giveaway too!

Today I bring you a cupcake that is amazing. Simply amazing. The filling in these guys is to die for. I was eating it with a spoon. It’s also awesome over ice cream. You really can’t go wrong with homemade dulce de leche, so it’s not surprising. However, homemade dulce de leche does take a while to make (3 hours simmering in a pot), so be prepared to put some time into these cupcakes. It’s well worth the effort. Hubby agreed these are one of the best cupcakes I’ve ever made

Next time I make these, I might leave the chocolate out of the caramel ganache. As you can see, it looks more chocolatey and I would have prefered to have it be caramel. It has a great caramel flavor, but I would have liked the color contrast of having a caramel sauce.

I followed the recipes from Fields of Cake exactly, so I’m not going to repost them here. Definitely go check out her post and amazing pictures!

Don’t forget to enter in my 2nd blogiversary giveaway by midnight on August 28th!

    Ack, your blog is making me gain weight! I’m vegan so I’ll be trying these… I think I’ll use almond milk in place of the soy milk however. I like the flavor of almonds with chocolate.
