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!

Check out my week of cupcakes here.

    These are amazing! And they’re very chocolatey. Definitely need a glass of milk with them 🙂

    Hi Jan. These Orio Crunch Brownies look delicious and I would like to try an make them. Being in Australia the recipe needs some clarification for me. How much butter is in a stick? We get butter in 1kg and 500 gm packs… Thanks so much. Just found your blog today and oh! oh!, everything looks so nice. I would like to leave my email address for you: jong2505@hotmail.com

    Thanks ever so much…

    These look so great! Can I eliminate the instant coffee or is it essential to the taste? I am making these for my 3-year-old niece’s birthday party, and she LOVES chocolate, but I don’t think she should have something with coffee in it. What are your thoughts?

    Sarah – The coffe in the brownies is there to enhance the flavor of the chocolate. It is not necessary, you could definitely take it out without any issues. I hope you enjoy the brownies!

    Sorry to be a pest with questions, but what kind of pan is the size you mentioned? I did a search online and I got two results – a jelly roll pan and also a much deeper roasting pan. The brownies in your photos look thick but I’m not sure if I need to pick up a new pan. Thanks for all of your help!!! 🙂

    Sarah – Sorry for not getting back to you sooner. The pan I used is 11x17x1. So it’s not very deep. I always call it a jelly roll pan. Hope that helps!
