  • About 12 Hostess Sea Salt Caramel Cupcakes, unwrapped (or any flavor cupcake)
  • 2 sticks butter, at room temperature
  • 1 Tbsp vanilla
  • ¼ cup cocoa powder
  • About 5 cups powdered sugar
  • ¼ cup milk, if needed
  • Chocolate-caramel candies, for garnish
  1. In a large bowl of a stand mixer, cream together the butter, vanilla and cocoa powder with the paddle attachment until creamy, about 2 minutes. Add in the powdered sugar, about a cup at a time, until frosting is light and fluffy. Add in the milk only if the frosting is too thick and pasty.
  2. Pipe the frosting high onto the Hostess Cupcakes. Garnish with a chocolate-caramel candy. Serve immediately.
