Lawn Bombs: Caramel Cupcakes with Chocolate Frosting via Cupcakes! 
Yield: 12 cupcakes

What You’ll need:

  • (For the Cupcakes) 1 ¼ cup all-purpose flour
  • ¾ tsp baking powder
  • ¼ tsp salt
  • 1 cup dark brown sugar
  • ½ cup sugar
  • ½ cup butter, softened
  • 2 eggs, room temp
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • ½ cup milk
    (For the Frosting)
  • 2 tbsp unsweetened cocoa
  • 4oz semisweet chocolate, melted and cooled
  • ½ cup butter
  • 3 cups confectioners sugar
  • 2-3 tbsp milk, as needed

The How-To:

  • Preheat to 350°F. Give yourself a gold star.
  • Mix the flour, baking powder and salt together in a bowl.
  • In another bowl, mix the sugars & butter together. Nice, now add the eggs and vanilla.
  • Alternate adding flour, milk, flour, milk, flour. You’re in the home stretch.
  • Spoon 2/3 full cups into a cupcake pan, bake for 20-22 minutes
  • (Frosting time!) Melt the chocolate together and let it cool for a minute
  • With a beater, mix the butter and sugar together. Add the cooled chocolate, then the milk. Beat until fluffy and presto-chango, you’ve got some baller chocolate frosting for your cuppycakes. 

So yeah, the lawn bomb thing. I kept on seeing pictures of cupcakes with the frosting done up all nice, and of course I chose to do it with chocolate frosting. Yeah, not one of my better choices in life – but I still love it. Presentation is only 50% right?
