These Harry Potter inspired Butterbeer Cupcakes are the best! A rich butterscotch cupcake topped with sweetened whipped cream makes these perfect for any witch or wizard!

1⅔ cup butterscotch baking chips divided
¼ cup water
½ cup butter softened
¾ cup sugar
¾ cup brown sugar
3 large eggs
1 t vanilla extract
2¼ cup all-purpose flour
¾ t baking soda
½ t baking powder
½ t salt
1 cup whole milk
2½ cups heavy cream divided

Preheat your oven to 350 degrees. Line two muffin tins with paper liners and set aside.
Combine ⅔ cup butterscotch chips in a microwave safe bowl with the water. Heat until melted making sure to stir every 20 seconds. Set aside.
Stir together the flour, baking soda, baking powder, and salt in a large measuring bowl. Set aside.
Whisk together the butter and both sugars in the bowl of an electric mixer until fluffy. Add the eggs, one at a time, followed by the vanilla extract. Slowly stir in the slightly cooled melted butterscotch mixture. Fold in the dry ingredients with the 1 cup of milk until incorporated.
Divide between your prepared pan and bake 15-17 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean. Cool completely.
Place the 1 cup of butterscotch chips in a glass bowl. In a saucepan heat 1/2 cup heavy cream until just simmering. Pour over your chips and allow to sit for 5 minutes. Whisk until smooth. Fill each cupcake with about 1 tablespoon of the mixture making sure to reserve 3 tablespoons for the frosting.
Place a clean mixing bowl in the freezer for 15 minutes. Once chilled whisk 2 cups heavy cream with 3 tablespoons of your butterscotch filling until fluffy. Pipe onto your cupcakes and enjoy. This can be as simple as placing it in a sealable bag, and snipping off one corner, to pipe the frosting onto the cupcakes!
