Serves 18

Preparation Time: 20 minutes, Cook Time: 20 minutes


  • Cupcake liners
  • 1 box classic chocolate cake mix
  • 1 1/3 cups buttermilk
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 bag of soft caramels
  • 2 containers of chocolate frosting
  • 4 ounces whipped topping
  • Topping for cupcakes: candy bars or caramel ice cream topping

Preparation Instructions

Cupcake Directions: Preheat the oven to 350°F. Place 18 cupcake liners into cupcake pan. Pour the cake mix into a mixing bowl along with 1 1/3 cups buttermilk. Add 2 eggs and mix together (using the paddle attachment) on medium speed until batter is smooth and lump free, 2-3 minutes. Scoop the cake batter into the prepared muffin tins with liners. Fill only halfway full. Place a caramel in the center of each cupcake, right on top of the batter. Bake for 18-22 minutes, until toothpick inserted in cupcake comes out clean. Allow to cool.

Icing Directions: Place both containers of icing into a mixing bowl. Whip until light and airy with the paddle attachment. Don’t over whip. Fold half a container of whipped topping (4 ounces) into the frosting. Finish by piping frosting on top of the cupcakes with a star tip. Garnish with crushed candy bar pieces, or drizzle with caramel ice cream topping.
