Chocolate Caramel Cupcakes


  • Chocolate Cake Mix or Homemade Chocolate Cake Recipe
  • Chocolate Canned Frosting
  • 1 – 2 cups powdered sugar
  • Salted Caramel Sauce (I used Trader Joes brand)
  • Sprinkles


  1. Bake your cupcakes and allow to cool.
  2. With a sharp pointed knife, cut out the center of the cupcake creating a cone shape. Set the cupcake top aside and fill the cavity with some caramel sauce. Cut off the point of the cupcake top and replace the now flat top back on top of the cupcake.
  3. Add the frosting to a mixer with the powdered sugar. You can use more or less of the powdered sugar depending on how thick you want your frosting. Whip the frosting until all the sugar is mixed in. Transfer the frosting to a piping bag prepared with a star tip.
  4. Frost your cupcake being careful not to disrupt the “cap” over the caramel. Drizzle some extra caramel over the frosting and add any sprinkles to decorate.
  5. Serve or cover and refrigerate.
