Our chococlate caramel corn cupcakes will satisfy any dessert craving. You just can't beat that crunchy popcorn on top of fluffy frosting!
Soooo, question: Is putting popcorn on cupcakes weird? Oh.
What about if it's caramel corn? Covered in chocolate? Yes. I thought that might be acceptable.
Lately, I am eating a lot of caramel corn. It's like a phase. I go through these weird phases where I eat something CONSTANTLY, then I get so sick of it, I don't want to see it again for like a year. But of course, I don't update my husband, so then one evening he'll ask, "can I get you something? Want some caramel corn?" and I'll be all offended and yell things like, "that was over a month ago!! You don't even know me!!"
Then I realize that he left the room because he knows that there is no reasoning with a crazy person.
For right now, these are my new favorite cupcake. Chocolate cake, rich caramel-y frosting, and crunchy caramel corn, all topped with a gorgeous chocolate ganache.
Eat these in front of your enemies. It'll make them super jealous.
