Do you have certain fast-food chain menu items that you were/are obsessed with? Like something that for several years you always had to have when passing by said chain? I have a couple..as a kid it was a Burger King chicken sandwich. I haven’t had one in years but my memory of them is that they were the single most delicious thing on the planet. As a 19 year old though, my obsession changed. I was in college, way too sophisticated for fast food, and very into frozen coffee drinks. Namely, a Caramel Frappuccino from Starbucks. It was my real first taste of coffee and I liked it blended, sweet and creamy- (pretty much not tasting like coffee at all right?)
Anyway, that obsession only lasted a couple years and fifty-some blended coffees later, but I’ll always remember that first sip of frozen, caramel-y, shopped cream goodness. Now I’m a no sugar-just cream in my coffee kind of girl, but I still have a thing for that oh so good flavor combo- enter these cupcakes!
