I love to make these cupcakes for my children and they love to eat them. It warms my heart to see their eyes close with that first bite and whipped cream on their little noses. It's just a handful of bliss.
For the cupcakes you will need a box of dark chocolate fudge cake mix. Prepare according to package directions.
For the cream filling...
1 quart heavy cream
1 cup confectioners sugar
2-3 T bottled or jarred caramel sauce
Whip heavy cream in a cold bowl until it begins to thicken and get fluffy. Add sugar and caramel sauce. Whip for a total of ten minutes. Place finished whipped cream in a pastry bag and set aside.
When cupcakes are cooled to room temperature, Place the tip of the pastry bag into the center of the cupcake and squeeze until the filling peeks from the top. Repeat until all cupcakes are filled.
Top the filled cupcakes with the remaining whipped cream, vanilla butter cream or chocolate ganache
