I needed a cupcakes recipe to use the salted caramel left over from the previous dessert (I made this amazing No Bake Cheesecake last weekend). Everyone here loves cupcakes… everyone loves bananas… and everyone loves chocolate! So, let’s put all these ingredients together and make some salted caramel banana cupcakes!! The preparation time is just 30 min and the recipe is very inexpensive – you have all the ingredients at home, you can even use overripe bananas!
