  1. Place the wet ingredients in a large bowl and mix well. Then sift in all the dry ingredients and mix lightly until combined.

  3. Bake them at 180 degrees Celsius for about 20 minutes, then wait for them to cool.

Homemade Caramel

  1. Put sugar and water into a small saucepan and heat on medium heat. While heating, do not stir, or you will have lumps in the caramel. If there is some sugar around the edges, brush it off with a wet pastry brush.
  2. Cook until the sugar turns golden brown. Then remove the pot from the stove and pour the heavy cream to the sugar and mix well to get a smooth texture.
  3. Add butter and reheat the caramel on a medium heat to bring it to a boil. When it boils, add salt and then pour it into the jar.

Nutella Frosting

  1. Put all the ingredients in a large bowl and mix well to get a smooth frosting. Store it in the refrigerator before use.

Cupcakes Assembly

  1. Dig holes in the middle of cupcakes, to do that help yourself with a spoon, knife or a piping bag attachment.
  2. Fill cupcakes with salted caramel and peanuts, then decorate them with a frosting as desired.

  • Read my caramel recipe for more detailed homemade caramel information.
  • If you do not want to make caramel yourself, you can buy it at the store, or you can melt caramel candies (for example Werthers original) in a double boiler and get the caramel that way. However, homemade caramel is quite simple to make, and the taste is amazing. So I highly recommend that you make your own.
