    Courtly's Note:

    "My husband remembers his mother making "little black cupcakes with caramel icing." I never thought caramel icing would taste good on chocolate cucpakes, boy, was I wrong. His mother passed down this recipe to me. It's to die for!" Submitted to Taste of Home by Cathy Bodkins

      I made these out of the Taste of Home magazine too; they were a huge hit with my four kids. The icing is very sweet and there was a lot of it; the cupcakes themselves were very moist with a very delicate crumb. Next time I make this recipe, I'm going to just put the batter into a greased & floured 9x13 pan -- it will be a great sheet cake.

      These cupcakes caught my eye immediately in the TOH magazine. I love caramel and chocolate together. These cupcakes are great... very sweet, so if you don't like sweet cupcakes, skip these. If you do like these, give them a try!
