Chocolate Stuffed Sweet Potato Cupcakes with Caramel Icing

Yield: 20 cupcakes

Prep Time: 20 minutes

Cook: 2 hours 30 minutes

Chocolate Stuffed Sweet Potato Cupcakes with Caramel Icing are my favorite fall season cupcakes! They’re just bursting with incredible flavors and textures.

Tessa's Recipe Rundown...

Taste: The sweet potato flavor is mild, but when combined with the spices and caramel it just tastes like biting into fall. Add some chocolate and WOW. Yum town.
Texture: Soft and fluffy, rich and fudgy, and lusciously smooth. In that order.
Ease: I’ll be honest with you, everything is easy but you are going to make a bit of a mess. Yes, even the caramel icing is easy because it’s cheater caramel icing!
Appearance: Goooorgeous. Especially when you bite into one!
Pros: Such a fun and sinful fall cupcake. But not too sinful because there’s vegetables, right?!
Cons: Messy to make.
Would I make this again? Absolutely.
