Rolo Cupcakes

Deliciously moist with a gooey, chocolatey center !

Rolo Cupcakes are definitely my new favorite cupcake, especially since I only have to scoop the very creamy frosting on top.

These two combinations – the gooey center and the creamy frosting – just work so well with these cupcakes. I would make them everyday had I the choice (and luxury!) of having such rich, sweet treats that often.

But I do not think there are many of us who can eat something awesome like these Rolo cupcakes, and not have any (weight-wise) regrets the next day.

Rolo Cupcakes

I baked Rolo cupcakes before, however the outcome was not the same. The Rolo candies I pressed into the batter before, did not melt and go all gooey.

This time round I broke each Rolo in half and then stuck them into the batter. As you can see, much better.

If canned caramel condensed milk is not available, you can always try a little Dulce de Leche (homemade or store-bought).
