So I wanted to make something with caramel in it because after the last chocolate-chocolate extravaganza I was craving something a little different. So I decided to do dulce de leche since a) I’d been wanting to try making it and b) caramel-y things are yummy ^^
Unfortunately I couldn’t find just one recipe that worked – so I used one for the base and one for the frosting. I also made the dulce de leche from scratch as well as buying some from Whole Foods, just in case.
I decided it was time for a nice decadent chocolate cupcake – plus I wanted to make my favorite chocolate mousse again and I thought turning it into a filled cupcake would be really delicious. My biggest concern was whether or not the chocolate cupcake itself would be moist and delicious enough to pair with the mousse.
