So today is totally one of those days where I feel like I have a million things going on at once. As a mom we usually feel this way most days. You feel me on this one? I woke up to a super messy house, only because I was too tired to clean last night, a sink full of dishes and about 6 loads of laundry to fold (ughhhhh). On top of all this my son decided to be extra messy today. Awesome! I do love the little guy though, he is just too cute. Any who on top of all this chaos I was told last night (of course) that my daughter has a swim party and we need to bring something. So I whipped up some yummy cupcakes between doing dishes, laundry, cleaning up,chasing my little one around the house and being a taxi driver for my eldest.
Here is the finished product:
mmmmm I'm drooling just looking at this pic! What are they you ask? Chocolate cupcakes with butter cream frosting, drizzled with caramel with heath bits sprinkled on top. Yeah my daughter better love me for this one!
The inspiration came from a blog I was reading this morning. Although I didn't really follow the recipe exactly, here is the link love if you want to check her version out.
First a special shout out goes to:
Box of Duncan Hines devils food cake
Jar of smuckers butterscotch/caramel sauce (this was the only kind without high fructose corn syrup, yucky stuff)
Buttercream frosting recipe found here
So now bake cupcakes according to box
Let cool for 30 min
Frost them ( I have a Wilton cake decorating kit so I frosted them fancy style)
Drizzle with caramel
Sprinkle on heath bits
Enjoy! mmmm so good!
So I will be folding laundry now if anyone is interested in joining me (yep hearing crickets on that one)
