Salted Caramel always seems to be a big thing during Christmas doesn’t it? Lately I’ve been loving Costa’s Salted Caramel Brownies and I know they also do a salted caramel cappuccino, so people definitely seem to associate Christmas with it!
With that in mind, this weekend I decided to hop on the ol’ bandwagon and make my own Salted Caramel cupcakes.
The cupcakes themselves are just chocolate cupcakes, topped with Salted Caramel buttercream that I made using Sugar and Crumbs Salted Caramel flavoured icing sugar.
I then topped them with Dr Oetker’s Milk Chocolate stars to add a more “christmassy” feel, but you can add whatever you like to them!
These cupcakes would be perfect for a subtle christmas snack, perfect for those Scrooge’s in your life!
