  • Prep

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
  2. Place 14-16 liners in muffin cups. (Baking tip: Spray top of pan with cooking spray for cupcakes to release from pan easier.)
  3. Mix batter according to directions. Spoon batter into muffin tin, about two-thirds of the way full. You will have enough batter for 14-16 cupcakes.
  4. Mix caramel pouch as directed on box. Spoon a heaping teaspoon of caramel on top of the batter. Do not mix into batter. Gently swirl caramel into surface of cupcake using a knife.
  5. Bake for 21-24 mins. Cupcakes will be golden brown and spring back when touched in center. Allow to cool completely before frosting. Frost with Duncan Hines(R) Creamy Home-Style Vanilla Frosting and decorate.

There is an error in the recipe says chocolate frosting and then in preparation it mentions Vanilla frosting!

I used Cream Cheese frosting and also had extra caramel to drizzle over the top of each cupcake. Making it in cake form was also very good!
