1/2 cup butter or margarine, softened
2/3 cup honey
1 egg
1/2 tsp vanilla extract
1 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp salt

1/3 cup honey
1 egg

Using electric mixer, beat butter until light; gradually add honey, beating until light and creamy. Beat in egg and vanilla.

In medium bowl, combine flour, salt and baking soda; gradually add to butter mixture, mixing until blended. Spoon batter into 16 paper-lined or greased 2-1/2-inch muffin cups. Bake at 350°F for 10 minutes.

Meanwhile, prepare topping. Using electric mixture, beat honey, egg, vanilla and salt until light; stir in chocolate chips and nuts. Remove cupcakes from oven. Spoon 1 tablespoon topping over each partially-baked cupcake.

Return to oven; bake at 350°F for additional 12 to 15 minutes or until topping is set. Cool in pans on wire racks.
