We made these using our dairy free cupcake recipe, which was perfect since it makes just 12 cupcakes and the chocolate cake combined with the caramel topping tasted pretty fabulous too! Make sure you melt the caramel topping slightly before drizzling, to make it more like a gravy consistency.

Caramel ice cream topping, melted slightly
Yellow Starburst candies
Directions: Liberally frost each cupcake with white frosting to look like a mound of mashed potatoes. Make a small indentation in the top where the yellow Starburst pat of butter will be set, but before placing it, drizzle caramel topping that has been melted slightly.
(I put mine in a small bowl in the microwave for about 15 seconds, then used a spoon to drizzle it over to look like gravy). Place Starburst pat of butter in place and add a tiny bit more caramel topping to complete the look.
Serve immediately and wait for the smiles! Enjoy!
