Cheats-Mini chocolate cakes with salted caramel filling

I’ve got this recipe from my sister a couple of weeks ago, and have been meaning to try it. Until today, I made a batch. It is best eaten when it’s still hot, that way, you get the ozzey caramel filling inside. -Be careful though, not to scald your tongue.

The only thing I would change since making it the first time is: I would add more caramel filling.  Instead of making my own caramel filling, I cheated and used soft caramel chews for the similar effect. (easier too) :P




Recipe: Cheat’s mini chocolate cakes with salted caramel filling

  • sea salt (for sprinkling)
  • 56g melted butter

  2. fill cupcake liners with chocolate cake batter up to 1/3 first, then add 2 caramel soft chews per cupcake (be careful not to push the caramel chews all the way to the bottom) sprinkle with some sea salt then cover with more chocolate cake batter until the cupcake liners are 2/3 filled.
