Kahlua Chocolate Cupcakes with Salted Caramel
These Kahlua Chocolate Cupcakes with Salted Caramel are so delicious and a wonderful combination of flavors! Kahlua and chocolate are already awesome together, but when you add caramel sauce and a sprinkle of sea salt, it’s a done deal.
So normally I’d tell you about something really funny or great that’s happening. It’s our chance to catch up, you know? Like, “Hey, how’s it going?” And then I tell you.
But as I sit here to write this post, there’s nothing clever. Just life. I’m sitting here next two dogs that are sleeping and snoring like rhinoceros’, reminding me that I’d love to curl up right between them right now.
My kitchen is a freaking disaster, as usual. With all the baking that goes on, it’s no wonder. As soon as I wash a dish, I use it again. It’s ridiculous.
There’s laundry that needs to be folded. I just realized I forgot to take my last dose of herbs for my acupuncture today (the first time I’ve forgotten) and if I take them too late at night they make me pee all night long. And I’m trying not to stress so that I don’t screw up the effects of the acupuncture. And well, that’s stressful. 😉
And darn it, I still haven’t watched this week’s episode of Dancing With The Stars. Priorities!
So seriously, with all that in my head, there’s just nothing witty. No good stories. Just life. For reelz.
But I’m still super happy to share these cupcakes with you. No matter what, I’m always going to be happy about cupcakes. I’ll always gladly talk sweets and shove my face with them – although sugar is apparently back for my acupuncture-ness. Grrr. (see where my mind is going?!) Quite a predicament, right? I’m mean, I’ve gotta live. There’s only so much I can take. Give me a cupcake!
And these cupcakes are definitely worth it. Chocolate, Kahlua, caramel, sea salt. Sweet and salty my friends. The best way to cure both cravings.
Fortunately these cupcakes are pretty easy to make. No complicated ingredients or anything, just a quick mix of the batter, a quick mix of the icing and you’re well on your way to your new favorite cupcake. 🙂
