Chocolate Chip Cupcakes with Banana and Caramel Filling

They’re smooth, succulent and packed with banana caramel and chocolaty goodness. Should you really want to boost the caramel taste of the cupcakes, then drizzle some caramel topping all over its banana flavored chocolate icing!

If you love caramel like i do then this is going to be a real treat for you. The caramel is pretty basic to make just watch the pot and don’t burn it. Burnt caramel – not so yummy.

Banana – i absolutely love fruit and anyone who knows me would know that i would have fruit any day over any other food – well besides cupcakes. I love bananas so this is a welcome addition to the cupcake. And for those of you who need there chocolate fix (By the way – chocolate is a vegetable or at least a bean so categorically fits into the healthy category) there is plenty of chocolate chips.
