    Chocolate Caramel Turtle Cupcakes | MSST

    Quarantine has me going crazy! You’d think that with all of the free time I have now, that I’d be getting loads of stuff done and that my productivity would be at a max. Uhm… I’ve definitely been setting a bunch of far-fetched goals for myself that I have yet to complete, in a sad attempt to try and motivate myself. Hopefully some of you can relate to the slump I’m trapped in! These past few weeks, I’ve been mindlessly playing video games and not paying much attention to the schoolwork I should be doing. And, as you can probably tell, since I haven’t posted since January, I’ve clearly been way too lazy to drag myself into the kitchen to bake.

    But today, I was feeling a little creative kick, and so I ended up spending the whole morning whipping up a batch of delicious turtle cupcakes, featuring sweet caramel buttercream frosting, an oozy chocolate ganache filling, and some pecans to garnish on top. The cake is perfectly fluffy and moist, and loaded with the rich, chocolatey goodness we all know and love; the frosting has just the perfect hint of caramel flavor; the ganache filling gives another unexpected burst of rich chocolate; and the chocolate and pecan topping ties everything together. These cupcakes are probably one of my favorite recipes I’ve made on the blog!
