Banana Toffee Cupcakes

These cupcakes are so rich you don't really need frosting. The banana, chocolate, and toffee flavors blend perfectly in this cupcake treat. I used the Heath toffee bits, and added more than called for in the original recipe. You can never have too much chocolate and toffee! I used a yellow cake mix this time, but I am going to use a banana cake mix next time for an even stronger banana flavor.
