Salted Caramel Cupcakes Recipe
Ingredients
  • 1 box spice cake mix such as Duncan Hines, prepared as directed and baked in cupcake wrappers (mini or regular sized both
  • work)
  • 1/4 cup caramel sauce such as Smucker's Caramel Topping
  • 1 8 oz package cream cheese softened
  • 1/4 cup salted butter 4 tbsp, no substitutions
  • 2 1/2 cups powdered sugar
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 tsp coarse or flaked sea salt
Instructions
  1. Make sure your cupcakes are entirely cooled before attempting to frost them.
  2. In a mixer, blend together cream cheese, vanilla extract, and powdered sugar until fluffy. Place in a frosting bag with a medium tip, or use a large plastic ziplock baggie with 1/4 inch snipped off one corner as a disposable frosting bag.
  3. Place the caramel sauce in a small plastic ziplock baggie.
  4. Pipe the cream cheese frosting onto the cupcakes as desired.
  5. Knead the caramel sauce inside the baggie until liquidy, then snip one corner off, about 1cm. (This will seem like a very tiny hole, but it'll make it so the flow of caramel is easier to control).
  6. Pipe the caramel sauce over the frosted cupcakes in a zigzag pattern.
  7. Sprinkle a very small pinch, about 10 to 15 grains, of the coarse or flaked sea salt over the top of each cupcake.
