Due to an offer I deemed as too good to be true at my local corner shop, I found myself in possession of an abundance of Rolos. I'm a sucker for a special offer, especially one concerning delicious chocolate covered toffee sweeties! When I returned home I was confronted with a feeling of guilt, I couldn't possibly eat all of these Rolos myself and no way could I let Kris loose on them. There was only one thing for it, Rolo Cupcakes!
Take you favorite chocolate cupcake recipe, press a single Rolo into the batter of each cup and bake as normal! Top with caramel buttercream, melted chocolate and your last Rolo. Specially for the one you love most, you!
Need a little insperation, find my go to chocolate cupcake recipe below.
