These Highway to Heaven Cupcakes are Shamelessly Over-the-Top

Indulge in shameless decadence with these aptly titled Highway to Heaven Cupcakes. Created by blogger Rosie, from the sugar-coated blog 'Sweetapolita,' these chip-crowned cakes have everything you could possibly want and more. Sure, these babies may wreak havoc on your love handles, but honestly, how can you possibly say no?

These cupcakes start out innocently enough with a rich base of coffee-spiked chocolate cake. Once baked, the cakes are topped with a reduced coffee syrup and a swirl of bittersweet chocolate buttercream is added for good measure. Things start to get ridiculous with the addition of several rippled potato chips and, if that wasn't enough, a lush drizzle of salted caramel sauce.

Step away from the scale and tear into these Highway to Heaven Cupcakes with wild abandon, because I'm willing to wager you deserve it.
