Whenever I get a box of chocolates I bite my way through each one until I find the one with caramel in the middle. The sweet milk chocolate and the creamy, chewy caramel are like little bites of heaven. Recently, while eating a chocolate caramel, visions of cupcakes stuffed with these little treasures began dancing around in my head. So I gave it a try. These sinfully delicious cupcakes are the result.
As much as I wanted to eat my way though a couple of boxes of chocolates to find the caramel ones, I figured it wasn’t a good idea. Instead, I turned to my favorite chocolate candy and made these scrumptious Rolo Cupcakes. And because no cupcake is complete without frosting, these are topped with deliciously sweet cream cheese frosting.
If you store these in the fridge, I suggest removing them a few minutes before you plan to eat them. If you don't the Rolo becomes hard in the center. Enjoy!
