Caramel Irish Cream Cupcakes

These cupcakes are inspired by some brownies I made a few years back. also using Irish Cream liqueur and “hidden” caramel. You can find a link to that recipe in the “You Might Also Like” section below.

Irish Cream and chocolate play really well together. As do chocolate and caramel, of course. So the combination of all three is an easy home run (or touchdown, layup, or goal, depending on your preferred sports analogy).

The really great part is that the Rolo candy you press into the top of the cupcake after they come out of the oven remains soft and gooey after they cool down. The hubs and I both really enjoyed these – I hope you do, too!

Equipment

  • 24 paper cupcake liners
  • 1 24 cavity muffin tin

Ingredients
  

Cupcakes:

  • 15.25 ounce box chocolate cake mix
  • 10 ounces 48 piece Rolo chocolate covered caramel candies, unwrapped, divided

Frosting:

  • 1/2 cup butter softened
  • 3 cups sifted confectioner's sugar
  • 2 tablespoons Irish Cream liqueur
  • 1-2 teaspoons heavy cream as needed
  • 2 tablespoons milk chocolate shavings

Instructions
 

  • Preheat oven to 350F.
  • Prepare 24 cupcakes as directed, using milk and 2 tbsp Irish cream in place of water. Since cake mixes differ, I am leaving that amount out, so adjust your nutrition facts accordingly.
  • My cupcakes baked approximately 14 minutes.
  • Push a Rolo upside down into the cupcakes while they are baked but still hot. This uses half the Rolos (put only one into each cupcake).
  • Allow them to cool completely.
  • Whisk together frosting until smooth.
  • Frost cooled cupcakes, topping with a right side up Rolo. Sprinkle with a small Hershey bar grated with a microplane.
  • Allow frosting to dry before packing away.
