A sweet, caramel and condensed milk soaked chocolate cupcake topped off with fluffy vanilla frosting and toffee bits. It just might be better than sex.
For the cake;
1 recipe of your favorite Devil's Food Cupcakes, I used Duncan Hines cake mix (plus 3 eggs, 1 cup water, and 1/3 cup vegetable oil)
1 can sweetened condensed milk
1 cup caramel sauce
For the frosting
5 tablespoons all-purpose flour
1 cup milk
1 cup (2 sticks) butter, room temp
1 cup granulated sugar
1-1/2 teaspoons vanilla extract
1/4 cup toffee bits
For the cupcakes
Prepare your cupcakes according to your favorite recipe or package instructions. Allow cupcakes to cool.
Poke four holes in each cupcake with a chopstick or other round object.
In a small mixing bowl, stir together condensed milk and caramel sauce. Transfer this mixture to a piping bag or a zip top bag. You can just snip the tip off, but the mixture will be very runny. I highly recommend using a small round piping tip. I used a Wilton #5.
Insert your piping tip or bag into each of the four holes in each cupcake and squeeze the mixture in. This can be very messy, so plan for drips.
For the frosting
In a small sauce pan over medium heat, whisk together flour and milk. Continue to whisk and heat until the mixture becomes thick like elementary school paste. Pop this into the fridge to cool for about ten minutes.
In a large mixing bowl, beat butter and sugar together on medium speed for about five minutes. You want the mixture to be very light and fluffy. Add the vanilla and beat to combine.
Add the milk and flour mixture, and beat on medium for another three minutes. Your frosting should be very fluffy, almost like whipped cream.
I used a Wilton 1M tip to pipe my frosting on. Hold the bag straight above the cupcake and squeeze for five seconds, then pull straight up.
Sprinkle with toffee bits. Take the first bite when no one's looking, just in case it really is that good.
