Once the brownie cupcakes are done cooling, you’ll want to add the chocolate icing. The chocolate icing is definitely going to take this recipe to the next level. Next, drizzle caramel syrup over each cupcake. Lastly, sprinkle sea salt on the top of the brownie cupcake. Are you ready to take a bite yet?
