Caramel Filling

Caramel Filling teams perfectly with chocolate cupcakes and walnuts. Top with a chocolate buttercream frosting or chocolate ganache for an amazing cupcake or cake.

Caramel, or butterscotch filling, has so much flavor that it really explodes when you bit into your cupcakes. If the cupcakes are filled whilst still warm they are a perfect dessert. All they need is a dollop of cream or ice-cream and a sprinkling of walnuts, pecans or fresh berries for a dessert your guests will rave about.

This filling is suitable for cakes and cupcakes, and can also be mixed with cake crumbs to make cake pops.

Ingredients:

  • 6oz (180g) butter
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1-1/2 cups packed dark brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup milk
