Best. Cupcakes. Ever.

Okay, so maybe they’re not the BEST, but they’ve got to be close.

My step-father turned 85 recently and, as he’s diabetic, I wanted to make him something that he can really enjoy.

I had a batch of my amazing Low Carb Caramel Sauce in the fridge, so I thought that a batch of Salted Caramel Cupcakes would be perfect.

I was right. 

And for those of you counting, one of these mini cupcakes works out to just 1 gram of carbs.

Enjoy!
