Orange Rolo Cupcakes

Rosetta Sperring


I love orange cake and I love Rolos, so what better combination but orange and chocolate together! I took these to work and they were loved by all. One of the physicians said they reminded her of a candy she had while in Germany. I think this would be a great cupcake to add an orange liquior to if desired.

The addition of orange peel in the mix really bumps up the flavor in these terrific cupcakes. But the real delight is when you reach the Rolo in the middle. It is such a great surprise - a definite treat! The Test Kitchen
