CARAMEL BROWNIE BATTER CUPCAKES

CARAMEL BROWNIE BATTER CUPCAKES

THE INGREDIENTS

FOR THE CUPCAKES:
1 box devil's food cake mix
1/2 cup dry brownie mix
3 large eggs
1 stick of butter, melted
1 cup milk

FOR THE FILLING:
11 oz. bag of caramel bits
3 tbsp. heavy cream

FOR THE FROSTING:
2 sticks butter, room temperature
1/2 cup dry brownie mix
1/4 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
1/4 cup heavy cream
4 cups powdered sugar
1/2 cup shortening
1 jar salted caramel sauce
Brownie bits (optional)

THE PROCESS

  1. Bake your choice of brownies first so they have plenty of time to cool (you don't want to put hot brownies on top of a buttercream frosting).
  2. Preheat your oven to 350ºF and line your cupcake tins.
  3. Whisk together cake mix and brownie mix. Using a paddle attachment or traditional beaters, combine dry mix, butter, and milk. Mix for about 30 seconds.
  4. Add eggs one at a time, mixing well in between and scraping down your bowl as needed.
  5. Fill cupcake liners with about 1/4 cup batter. Bake for 18-20 minutes, or until tester comes out clean. Allow cupcakes to cool in pan for about 3 minutes, then move to rack to cool completely.
  6. Using a cupcake corer or knife, remove the center of each cupcake.
  7. In a microwave-safe dish, pour 3 tbsp. of heavy cream over 1 bag of caramel bits. Heat for 40 seconds and stir. Heat and stir at 15 second intervals until your ingredients are melted and well-combined. Allow 10-15 minutes to slightly cool.
  8. Using a piping bag with a circular tip, filled the center of each cupcake with caramel.
  9. In a large bowl, whisk together powdered sugar, cocoa, and brownie mix.
  10. Using a paddle attachment or traditional beaters, cream your butter. Add in dry ingredients and heavy cream a little at a time, beginning at a low speed and building up to high. Add in 1/2 cup shortening and beat on high until light and fluffy. Don't forget to scrape down the sides of your bowl to make sure all ingredients are well-incorporated.
  11. Frost with a piping bag and your favorite tip. Top with pieces of brownie, drizzle with caramel sauce, and enjoy!
