Ingredients

  • 1 pkg Duncan Hines Moist Deluxe Caramel Cake Mix
  • 1 can Duncan Hines Creamy Homestyle Chocolate Buttercream Frosting
  • 1 pkg softened cream cheese
  • 1 egg
  • 1/3 cup sugar
  • 1/8 tsp salt
  • pkg caramel square candy for garnish, if desired

Baking Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Prepare cake as directed on package. In a separate bowl, beat the cream cheese, egg, 1/3 cup sugar and 1/8 teaspoon salt until light and fluffy. Stir in the chocolate chips and set aside. Line muffin tins with cupcake liners. Pour batter into cups about 2/3 way. Spoon a small dollop of cream cheese mixture in the middle of each batter-filled cup, then cover with more batter. Bake as directed, or until toothpick inserted comes out clean. Allow cupcakes to cool. Tip to double size of your frosting - transfer frosting to a bowl and whip with electric mixer on medium speed for a few minutes until volume is almost doubled. Fill a pastry bag with frosting, using a star tip to pipe frosting in circular motion on top of each cupcake, bringing to a point. Top each cupcake with caramel square candy, if desired

Tips

Preventing Peaks & Tunnels

Preventing Peaks & Tunnels

You can avoid peaks and tunnels if you add the liquid to the dry ingredients and stir only until they are moistened. If you stir out all the lumps, your muffins will have peaks and tunnels and may also have a tough texture.


Glazing a Cake

Glazing a Cake

When completely glazing a cake, let the excess glaze drizzle off, then before the glaze sets, remove from the plate to allow for a clean finish on the bottom of the cake.
