Mocha-Caramel Cappuccino Cupcakes

malena Gilstrap


This is a very rich cupcake, so best to make the regular size(not jumbo)& when I say rich I mean intense taste of chocolate and cappuccino flavors, I copied this recipe from a web site and made it my own with a little adding and subtracting of ingredients, everyone who ate it LOVED it and asked when was I gonna make more.
