Chocolate chestnut caramel cupcakes *gluten free*

I made these for a Halloween morning tea we had at work, but they could easily be made for Christmas, with the chestnuts, its kinda christmassy, and they are good!

ok I confess, the cupcakes were from a packet mix, its a new packet mix made with chestnut flour, I didn't have enough time to make any from scratch, I have a recipe, but I have to order chestnut flour on line as its not in the shops yet. sooo..

make 1 batch of chocolate chestnut flour cupcakes.
1 marshmallow per cupcake
red food colouring
black food colouring
chocolate melts
can of condensed milk turned into dulce de leche
150g cream cheese
1 cup icing/powdered sugar

using the cone method, cone out your cupcakes and fill with caramel replacing the top.
mix cream cheese, icing sugar, 2 tbsp caramel. put 3 tbsp of mixture in another bowl and add red food colouring to desired colour.
top cupcakes with the caramel icing, then red icing.
with a toothpick, dip into red food colouring and make squiggly vein lines on your marshmallows
melt chocolate and add a few drops of black colouring, pipe small round for the eyeballs pupil on wax paper, and pop in freezer for 10mins to set.
using a small bit of melted chocolate attach choc pupil to marshmallow eyeball and set onto top of cupcake nestled inside the red icing. voila!!
