I suppose “heaven” could be defined many ways depending upon what you like.  Let the Baking Begin defines heaven as dark chocolate, caramel, peanuts, and chocolate ganache.  That’s pretty accurate.  There is a lot going on here – two layers of frosting and caramel filling – but oh my.  This may be pretty close to cupcake heaven.
