It has been so long since I’ve done a cupcake post! I got a little distracted this summer with moving to a new house. We have been doing quite a bit of light home renovating since the move. I tell you about our Fireplace upgrade here , here and here. The final post is coming soon on our amazing fireplace mantle transformation series! We are delighted with how it came out!

Recently our daughter, Ellie, had her first birthday party. Her Princess Cupcake Dress ‘WOWED’ the family in both design and flavor, and Ellie had her own, perfect, one year old sized smash cupcake! Creating her birthday ‘cake’ called me back to baking. I enjoyed getting back into the swing of cupcake things. Time for more cupcakes!
I volunteer at a local youth group. Our church Christmas party needed treats. I put my thinking cap on and decided that the kids would like Twix cupcakes. They truly did! These cupcakes were gobbled up and there were lots of little faces with chocolate and caramel all over them smiling back at me! I will probably make these again for Christmas day! This Twix Cupcake recipe is easy and yummy!
Recipe Notes for Twix Cupcakes:
This recipe makes 30 cupcakes:
I made these cupcakes using a chocolate recipe from my popular Chocolate Nutella cupcakes. The topping was a simple caramel buttercream frosting. I must admit, I had an awful cold while I was making these cupcakes so I didn’t make my own homemade salted caramel sauce. I just went to the store and I bought a jar from the ice cream topping section. If you go my route and you decide to purchase the caramel sauce, make sure it is a sauce and not a caramel syrup! Here’s our recipe for homemade Buttermilk Caramel Sauce (It is easy and delicious!), if you want to make yours from scratch. you need the thicker consistency of the sauce to hold your buttercream together. Otherwise you will end up with a melting slimy mess.
