Double Chocolate Cupcakes with Salted Caramel Buttercream | The Little Kitchen. Double Chocolate Cupcakes with Salted Caramel Buttercream I have a thing for cupcakes. Maybe because they are small? And salted caramel. Well because it’s caramel and butter is involved. I have a good friend, Carrie, who tells me all the time she doesn’t like salted caramel. I’m so glad to be working with Land O’Lakes again to bring you another recipe and because this one’s a little special, I consider this a holiday recipe. You can make your own caramel sauce or use store bought. Also, when I’m making these cupcakes, I usually put the cupcakes in the oven, make the salted caramel and then the buttercream but you can honestly make the caramel and the buttercream ahead of time, even a couple of days before!

Sift all of the dry ingredients, especially, the cocoa powder because it always has hard bits in it, except the salt. Take two tablespoons of the dry ingredients and mix in with the chocolate chips ahead of time, then set aside. Cream the butter and the sugar together. Add eggs and mix. Chocolate Oreo Cake. This Chocolate Oreo Cake is to die for! A moist chocolate cake full of Oreo icing! And not just any Oreo icing – it is FULL of crushed up Oreos. An Oreo lover’s dream. So you might remember that last year I mentioned that the hubs and I were going to South Africa, both to visit his family and for me to see the country. Well, we were supposed to go over Thanksgiving and into December, but ended up having to postpone the trip because of a delay with getting the hubs’ citizenship.

It has taken a LOT longer than we expected based on some other people’s experiences, but finally the hubs has the final interview and test on Monday! You can be sure that once we have the citizenship, we’ll be applying for his passport and re-booking the trip. But for now, he’s been studying for the test. It came up during the Super Bowl on Sunday night. He went and got it and started reading out the questions. But I’ve been quizzing him the last few nights, so now we are both ready for the test! You guys. 1. Enjoy! Chocolate Raspberry Zebra Cake. The Best Chocolate Cupcakes. Hello, hello! Quickly before I dive into these unbelievable cupcakes (which are every bit as amazing as they look), a quick apology for the lapse in posts last week.

However, I’m back (and MARRIED!! … more on that later!) And way overdue on getting your kitchen dirty. Now, let’s talk cupcakes! First things first – the cake part of these cupcakes is phenomenal. Oh, that frosting. I don’t believe I’ll ever search for another chocolate-chocolate cupcake recipe ever again.

Black Magic Cake. While I’ve often said I’m not a big fan of chocolate… and I’d never fight you for a slice of chocolate anything, my friends, let me state right here… this is the cake that would make me change my mind. Although it is homemade from scratch, it rivals any cake by a professional pastry chef in a 5 star restaurant.

It is incredibly moist… incredibly rich… incredibly flavorful… and incredibly delicious. Yeah, this cake is black magic alright because it would pretty much take some black magic to make me love a chocolate cake this much! Suffice it to say that if there were two of us at the table… and only one slice of Black Magic cake left… oh yes indeed I would push up my sleeves, slip off my earrings, kick off my shoes and wrastle you right there in public. And rest assured I would emerge victorious. This chocolate cake is that just.that.good! Once again, I won’t bore you with an excess of words because I think the pictures speak for themselves.
