1 ¼ cups butterscotch ice cream topping, divided (you can have store-bought or make it your own, recipe provided below)
¼ cup shortening
½ teaspoon vanilla extract
Pinch of salt
1 ½ cups brown sugar
1 cups of powder sugar
Chocolate butterscotch candies
I use 1 triple chocolate cake mix and just follow the instruction on how to make the cupcakes.
Divide batter between 24 cupcakes liners. Bake for 20 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean. Use a straw to poke several holes in the top of each cupcake, or I use an empty condiment bottle tip to make holes and fill the cupcakes with butterscotch sauce.
For store-bought butterscotch ice cream topping: Heat 1 cup of the butterscotch ice cream topping the microwave for 30 seconds. Then fill the hole with butterscotch sauce with condiment bottle or drizzle the topping into the holes in each cupcake and let it cool down entirely. For homemade Butterscotch sauce recipe, you can find it below.
In a medium bowl, beat the butter and shortening on medium speed for 3 minutes or until smooth and creamy. Add the vanilla, ¼ cup butterscotch ice cream topping, salt with the mixer running. Slowly add the powdered sugar until thoroughly mixed in. Increase to high speed and beat for 3 minutes or until light and fluffy. Top each cupcake with a swirl of frosting. And put the chocolate butterscotch candy on top.
¼ cup unsalted butter
¾ cup packed dark brown sugar
¾ cup heavy cream
2 teaspoons pure vanilla extract
½ teaspoon salt
In a medium saucepan over medium heat, combine all ingredients. Then whisk in cream, let the mixture bubble and thicken for 5 minutes without stirring. Bring to boil. Cool to room temperature.
