Ingredients:

CHOCOLATE CUPCAKES:
  • 3/4 cups all-purpose flour (make sure to properly measure the flour!)
  • 1/2 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/2 cup (1 stick) unsalted butter, softened
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 1/2 cup sour cream
CARAMEL BUTTERCREAM FROSTING:
  • 1 cup (2 sticks) salted butter, softened
  • 2 Tablespoons light corn syrup
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 4-5 cups powdered sugar
  • 1/4 cup heavy whipping cream
  • 1/4 cup caramel sauce
  • 12 mini Twix Candy bars, cut in half
  • chocolate sprinkles

Directions:

PRE-STEP: Preheat oven to 350F degrees. Line (1) cupcake pan with 12 cupcake liners. Set aside.

STEP 1: In a medium bowl, mix flour, unsweetened cocoa powder, baking powder, baking soda and salt. Set aside.

STEP 2: In a large bowl, using an electric or stand mixer  on medium speed, beat eggs and sugar for about 2 minutes, or until light and creamy.

STEP 3: Add the butter and vanilla extract and beat on low speed for about 1 minute, or until well blended.

STEP 4: Beat in the dry ingredients on low speed until blended. DO NOT OVER MIX!

STEP 5: Add the sour cream and beat until smooth.

STEP 6: Fill each cupcake liner about 3/4 the way full with cupcake batter. Bake 18 to 20 minutes or until toothpick inserted in center comes out clean. Allow cupcakes to cool before frosting.

MAKE CARAMEL BUTTERCREAM FROSTING:

STEP 7: Using an electric or stand mixer, cream together butter, corn syrup, and vanilla extract until light and fluffy. Beat for about 3 minutes.

STEP 8: Slowly, add powdered sugar and heavy whipping cream. Mix until frosting becomes light and fluffy, adding milk until the mixture reaches desired consistency. Add caramel sauce and mix until combined.

STEP 9: Frost cooled cupcakes using a piping bag or knife. Top with SPRINKLES & a Twix bar.

*For the frosting, heavy cream or half-and-half will give your frosting the creamiest texture. You may use milk instead, but the frosting won't be as creamy.

    I noticed that corn syrup was listed on Step 7 for the buttercream, but it was not listed in the ingredients. How much is needed (if any)? Thanks!

      Thanks for catching my mistake! You will need 2 Tablespoons light corn syrup!

    I love Twix too. When you combine it with a chocolate cupcake and caramel buttercream frosting it sounds awesome!
