Low Carb Caramel Cupcakes

Caramel, toffee and butterscotch are my weak spots. I thought I could never touch them again because all of sugar in them, but when I came across some recipes for the sauce, I was more than delighted. I couldn’t believe it!  I came up with this low carb caramel cupcakes recipe. It’s really good and the only problem is to stop eating them. The first batch I made was gone before I knew it and I had to whip up extra one. The kids loved it so much that I make these cupcakes every week now.
