Chocolate Malt Cupcakes (aka Whopper Cupcakes)

By Caroline ShupertRecipes cmaude


This recipe came from a Carnation flyer several years ago. These cupcakes are delicious, especially if you like chocolate malt as much as my family does!

I added the Whopper candy on top of the finished cupcake. It seemed like a natural but, of course, its optional.
