Baseball season is in full swing, and these sweet treats are a nod to the quintessential stadium treat: Cracker Jack! The cupcakes are unbelievably simple to assemble and are sure to impress party guests or any little sluggers you have at home.
Begin by baking a few dozen butter flavored cupcakes. You can feel free to make yours from scratch; mine were 100% Betty Crocker. After they have cooled, frost each of the cupcakes with your choice of vanilla or cream cheese frosting. If given the option, I always choose cream cheese frosting. Always.
Next, drizzle a small amount of caramel sauce over the frosting, and sprinkle with a pinch of sea salt. Notice that I used two liners on my cupcake. You are more likely to catch the caramel overflow when you double up the liners.
Finish it all off with a few pieces of Cracker Jack (or similar caramel/popcorn/peanut confection).
Just like that you have a very chic looking baseball-themed dessert. The cupcakes will look gourmet, so I won’t blame you if you don’t choose to tell your guests that they came from a box mix!
