I have to admit to not being very adventurous in the kitchen. I can follow a recipe and maybe tweak it, but have just recently started getting into modifying cake type recipes into cupcakes. It’s usually not that hard, only requiring a change in the baking time or maybe the frosting but this time around I took a cookie bar recipe from Kraft Recipes and made cupcakes. Oh my. The cookie bars were over the top delicious but the cupcakes. Oh the cupcakes are, if I do say so myself, fabulous. And the best part? They are so very easy to make.
The first time I made them, I drizzled the caramel on top of the cream cheese batter but the caramel overflowed a bit and went down the sides of the cupcake. This time, I swirled the caramel into the top of the cream cheese with a knife to create a marbling effect and it worked much better.
