Gluten Free Mocha-Caramel Cappuccino Cupcakes- Sweet Saturday!

 
Hello everyone, and happy Sweet Saturday!
 
Sweet Saturday
 
I know this is rather late for a Sweet Saturday post to be going up but my parents were out during the day having a little Valentines day lunch and I wanted to make them once they got back so we could all enjoy dinner and a little sweet together!
 
I know I call just about every recipe delicious but to emphasize the goodness of these cupcakes I will tell you that my entire family said that these might possibly be the best cupcakes I have ever made! These have a coffee flavor that isn't too strong but it is evident enough to give nice flavor. The frosting tastes like a Starbucks Frappuccino in my opinion. The cake and frosting are both super fluffy and those of you who are gluten-free, just won't believe your taste buds. These little guys are flat-out incredible. Give these a try when you get the chance!
 
P.S- These were the quickest cupcakes I have ever made too, so bonus points for that!
 
Ingredients:
- Chocolate Cupcakes (I use the Gluten-Free mix from the Fresh Market because I think it tastes delicious for being so quick but feel free to make your own as well.)
-4 3/4 teaspoons instant espresso granules
-1/2 pint heavy whipping cream
-2 tablespoons powdered sugar
- Chocolate chips for topping
-Caramel topping
 
Directions:
Prepare oven and cupcakes as your mix describes except add 4 teaspoons of the espresso granules in with the mix.
Divide batter among lined cupcake tins and cook cupcakes according to your directions.
In a bowl with an electric mixer, beat whipping cream, powdered sugar, and remaining 3/4 teaspoons of espresso granules on high speed until peaks form. You will have to beat it for several minutes so be patient.
To serve, place each cupcake on a plate or in a coffee mug if desired and top with your frosting. Then drizzle caramel on top and garnish with chocolate chips as you wish.
Prepare for your guests along with yourself to be blown away!
 
I hope you enjoyed this recipe and give it a shot. Happy Valentines day as well. As always don't forget to comment or email me with any thoughts or questions! Talk to you soon!

    1. OH definitely try them if you are a cupcake lover! This tastes so good even after a day of being in the refrigerator... Don't forget to drizzle some caramel on top of the cupcakes... That is one of the best parts! Can't wait to see how it goes for you, I hope you love them as much as we did!
