    Heart Chocolate Dulce de Leche Cupcake

    1 c boiling water
    3/4 c unsweetened cocoa powder
    1/2 c milk
    1 t vanilla extract
    1 c unsalted butter, softened
    1 1/4 c dark brown sugar
    3/4 c granulated sugar
    4 large eggs
    2 c all-purpose flour
    1 1/4 t baking soda
    1/2 t salt
    2/3 c dulce de leche

    In a bowl, whisk the boiling water into cocoa until smooth and whisk in milk and vanilla extract. In a large bowl, beat together butter and sugars until light and fluffy, about 2 to 3 minutes, and beat in eggs, 1 at a time, beating well after each addition. Into another bowl, sift together flour, baking soda, and salt and add to egg mixture in batches alternately with cocoa mixture, beginning and ending with flour mixture, and beating well after each addition. Stir in the dulce de leche. Fill each wrapper slightly more than 1/2 way. They will rise a lot. Bake in a preheated 350F oven for about 18 minutes. Cool on a wire rack.

    dulce de leche

    1/2 gallon of milk
    2 cups sugar (I used vanilla sugar to make it extra vanilla flavored. You can also put vanilla beans into the pot if you have some.)
    2 teaspoons vanilla extract

    Pour milk, vanilla, and sugar into a pot over medium-high heat (make sure the pot is big enough so that milk won’t spill over the sides when it boils). Bring to a boil, whisking constantly.
    Turn heat down and slightly simmer over very low heat for about 2.5 to 3 hours. Check the mixture every once in a while to make sure it isn't simmering too much. When done, stir until smooth and pour dulce de leche into jars. Refrigerate any leftovers.
