First of all, please excuse my pictures! Someone who was "helping" me in the kitchen managed to knock 2/3 of my cupcakes off the counter and onto the floor. Let's just say I wasn't a happy camper. These cupcakes are seriously so good and I just could not believe 16 of them were now dead. done for. gone. It really was tragic. But anyways...
To make things easy I started with a cake mix, now you could do it without a cake mix, but why do that when it was so easy?!
I not only melted and mixed in the white chocolate chips but also added some that got mixed into the batter whole.
I just used a spoon and mixed them into the batter as best as I could and then threw them in the oven.
I don't have a picture of them coming out of the oven because I'm a knucklehead and forgot to take one!
I decided to make a buttercream and mix in melted white chocolate chips, make sure your chocolate is as cool as possible so it doesn't just melt the buttercream.
Since these were all that was left I added a little frosting and made some homemade caramel to add to the top.
