Galaxy Bites Chocolate and Caramel Cupcakes

chocolate and caramel cupcakes recipe topped with rose buttercream and galaxy bites flower gold soft pearl centre

I’d love to tell you more about these but, truth be told, they have sat on my phone for about 2 months (the photos, not the cakes!), and my memory is, well, hazy at best!

The key ingredient I can tell you is my latest addiction in the chocolate market, Galaxy Bites. Think of a malteaser, but with creamy galaxy chocolate on the outside and smoooooth galaxy caramel inside. Yum!

The cupcakes were made form a basic vanilla sponge mixture. I used half light brown sugar to add a more caramel-y taste to the sponge, and a good handful of caramel bites, mixed in with the flour so they wouldn’t sink to the bottom on baking.

The baked cupcakes – a golden caramel colour and with sneaky peeks of chocolate!

To decorate – it couldn’t really be anything else but more chocolate! A rose swirl of chocolate buttercream, topped with a quartered caramel bite, and finished with a soft gold pearl centre.

  1. As I sit here munching into what should have been a red velvet cup cake (but is actually just a chocolate cup cake!) with no topping on at all because it went wrong and I have to try again this after noon I am very jealous of your Galaxyness! Nom, Nom.Nommmm

      I am jealous of your being able to bake mid-afternoon! Oh to not be stuck at my desk…
      PS is there ever really anything wrong with chocolate cupcakes?! Who needs them to be red anyway! x

    Yum! I imagine this would also be amazing with some kind of salted caramel (the liquid not the hard kind) chocolate like you can get in hotel chocolat, oh my days!

        Most amazing chocolatiers do them, they’re INCREDIBLE! Had some artisan du chocolat ones too.


  3. Yum! I think those instructions are fine 🙂
