Chocolate cupcakes. Rolo candy. Praline frosting.
If there is anything more I need to say I honestly don’t know what it is. The chocolate cake is moist and tender – very chocolatey. You bite through the rich icing and into the dense cake and find yourself with a meltingly sweet Rolo oozing from the center.
Rolos are pretty darn popular here. They are right up there with sour patch kids – but I won’t be making cupcakes from those. Ew. We have a hard time keeping them away from Shiloh, especially – but all of us are pretty addicted to chocolate and caramel combos. Yum.
These are easy. A simple extra dark chocolate cupcake with an easy praline frosting (just leave the coconut and pecans out of the recipe) is filled with one rolo and then topped with a second Rolo – you know, for posterity.
Nutrition info is based on the cupcake alone, without the frosting.
