    medium sized bowl and combine.
    4. Add the wet ingredients to the dry ingredients and beat
    until well combined.
    5. Slowly add the water to the batter and mix on low speed
    until well combined. Scrape down the sides of the bowl as needed to make sure
    everything is well combined. Please note that the batter will be very thin.
    6. Fill the cupcake liners about 3/4 and bake for 15-17
    minutes, or until a toothpick comes out with a few moist crumbs.
    7. Remove the cupcakes from oven and allow to cool for 2
    minutes, then remove to a cooling rack to finish cooling.

  • 9. Cook for 5 minutes, stirring constantly Add heavy cream, vanilla and salt and stir to combine completely
  • 10. Remove from heat and let cool slightly before transferring to a bowl or jar to cool to room temperature.

  • 14. Pipe buttercream onto cooled cupcakes

To make chocolate topping:

  • 15. Heat the cream in a small saucepan over medium heat. Add in the chocolate chips and
    allow them to sit for a minute or two to soften, then stir until the chocolate starts to melt and turns into a ganache. Stir in the corn syrup.
  • 16. Drizzle a small amount of the chocolate sauce over the top of the cupcakes, allowing it to drip down over the buttercream. Dip the broken sugar cones into the salted caramel and place on top of cupcakes. Top with chopped peanuts
  • 17. Allow the chocolate to set for a few minutes before serving.
