Dulce de Leche is Spanish for Amazing

Dulce de leche is the Spanish phrase for AMAZING!

Ok, so not really, but it should be.

Today I made the most perfect chocolate cupcakes, filled them with dulce de leche caramel and topped them with chocolate fudge and sea salt.

The cupcakes were made using coffee instead of water, so they have a little caffeine kick to them. The dulce de leche caramel is sweetened milk that was slowly cooked down to a thick creamy caramel. Once the deliciously caffeinated  cupcakes were cooled I pumped them full of creamy caramel goodness. Last but not least I made a chocolate fudge to top them off and sprinkled just a pinch of sea salt on top.

Now, please excuse me while I slip into my sugar coma...


  1. Ohhh!!!! Look yummy, wish I had them! When you filled them did you just stick the piping bag in them or did you scoop a lil out and then filled? Last time I stuffed cupcakes I cored them with a apple corer but that was a pain...lol

  2. I actually just stuck my finger in them once they cooled. I stuck it in and wiggled it around a little bit (sounds kinda dirty lol)
