So what the “Forks”for dessert is the topic of the day………


This time of year all I think about are sweets. Candy, cookies, but mostly CAKE!!!!!

I love cake. I also have become a huge fan of salted caramel……anything. So why not have all in one? So Dark Chocolate Salted Caramel Cupcakes with Salted Caramel Frosting (I know long title right?).I originally made these for Thanksgiving. I know pumpkin pie blah, blah, blah but my family is not a huge fan of the pumpkin pie. But we all love chocolate!

These turned out so well that they were requested again for Christmas. I will be all to happy to oblige.
