Twix cupcakes recipe: a delicious cupcake filled with caramel and covered with crispy chocolate. It is impossible to keep your hands of from this treat!
I love the food blog swap. Every month it's a challenge to choose only 1 recipe from another food blog and give it my own twist. And this month it was really hard because I've found so many delicious recipes on the Eef cooks blog. Eef also has a good eye for the recipes because it all looks nice.

The verdict of the jury (my husband, kids and colleagues): this is good! And it was just like that!
It's a good taste!
