Black Butterscotch Cupcakes


These were super moist and very rich! You have been warned! Break out the milk, cause your going to need it :)


1/2 c unsalted butter
1 3/4 c flour
1/2 c dark chocolate cocoa powder
1 1/4 c dark brown sugar
1 1/4 tsp baking powder
1 tsp baking soda
1 tsp salt
2 lg eggs
1 c milk
2 tbsp vanilla extract
2 tsp vinegar
3/4 c butterscotch chips
Preheat oven to 350º and line muffin cups with paper. Melt butter in a small saucepan over low heat and allow to sit and cool while you combine the other ingredients. Mix all the dry ingredients in a small bowl. Mix melted butter and vinegar - stir quickly to combine and then add to dry mixture. Stir with a wooden spoon until wet and dry ingredients come together. Add chips and gently stir in. Using a scoop, divide batter between the 12 muffin cups. Bake for 17-20 minutes or until toothpick comes out clean

Frosting -
1 c butterscotch chips (melted)
1 c buttercream frosting ( I used Duncan Hines )
Melt chips and mix with frosting until blended. Ice your cupcakes and enjoy!
