1 box white cake mix

3 eggs

½ cup vegetable oil

1 cup water

 

Caramel Buttercream

½ cup softened unsalted butter

2 cups powdered sugar

2 tablespoons bottled caramel sauce

¼ teaspoon cinnamon

 

1 cup M&M'S Caramel Candies

PREPARATION:

1. Preheat oven to 325℉.


2. Fill mini muffin tins with cupcake liners.  


3. Make cake batter according to package instructions. Fill the cupcake liners with cake batter ⅔ of the way full. Bake 12–15 minutes until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean. Set aside to cool.


4. To make the buttercream, beat the soft butter until light and fluffy using a hand mixer.  Slowly add the powdered sugar and mix until fully incorporated. 


5. Add the milk, one tablespoon at a time and blend until the consistency is creamy and smooth. Add the caramel sauce and blend until fully incorporated. Set aside.


6. Poke a hole in each cooled cupcake with the back of a spoon. Fill the hole with caramel sauce and 1 Caramel M&M.  


7. Frost the cupcakes with buttercream, top with Caramel M&M’S, and enjoy!
