Description

These sweet treats are festive enough for a birthday party or other celebration, yet they are supremely easy to make. The "frosting" is actually an easy dulce de leche made by cooking a can of sweetened condensed milk until darkened and caramelized and then piping it onto the cooled cupcakes with a pastry bag (or a plastic bag with a corner snipped off) in random patterns (or use your own creativity). Chocolate sprinkles are a fast and fun garnish.
