Yield: Yields 12 cupcakes.
The burnt-sugar flavor of caramel of these cupcakes pairs so well with mellow notes of the frosting. If you like, top them with toasted chopped opecans (or pecan halves) to balance the sweetness.

Definitely! i will try to make this at home.....
I thought the butterscotch frosting was excellent so that would actually get 5 stars. However, the caramel cupcakes were way too sweet and even more so with the frosting. So this was not a good combo in my opinion. I will be testing the frosting out with a less sweet vanilla cake recipe though. Thanks for the frosting recipe. I will keep you posted. =)
