Tips to Make Chocolate Toffee Cupcakes

  • Start with your favorite chocolate cupcake recipe. If you’re anything like me, you definitely need a “no-fail” cupcake, so I always fall back on my Lazy Girl chocolate cupcakes. Done right every time–and they’re always so moist it’s sinful.
  • If your heart is just set on it, you can make a cream cheese frosting, sure. But the best, most light and fluffy frosting you can pipe with a decorating bag is this awesome homemade buttercream in this recipe, with confectioners sugar and all the yummy salted caramel flavoring.
  • Always always always let your cupcakes cool to room temperature before you frost them because warm frosting is no fun. Particularly when you’re drizzling salted caramel over it. You’re just asking for the frosting to just melt on you then. LOL!
  • Don’t skimp on the heath bar bits. If you want my personal opinion, you’ll just plan on loading up a half of a these awesome heath bars on each cupcake. So yummy.
