Stepped up Cupcakes

Making cupcakes is one of my favorite activities. There are just so many different things you can do with them from ingredients to decoration. Plus they are so fun to give away to friends and neighbors. So when the urge struck last week I went to my trusty "For My Sweet Tooth" board on pinterest and scoured the cupcake recipes. After much debate I settled on a simpler version of this snickers cupcake recipe. I was not feeling in the make-everything-from-scratch mood and then I remembered the bottle of Hershey's caramel that has been sitting in my fridge, begging for some use. And the idea for these beauties was formed.

What you Need
  • Boxed Chocolate Cake mix and necessary ingredients (I used Betty Crocker's Chocolate Fudge)
  • Cream Cheese Frosting
  • Caramel
  • Sprinkles
  • Cupcake liners 
What you Do
This process is so simple but they create cupcakes that are "Stepped" up and delicious. First you want to mix up and bake the cupcakes according to the package instructions then let them cool. Now comes the stepping up part, take a normal spoon and carve out a round hole in the center of your cupcakes.

Then fill the hole with a spoonful or two of caramel.

Then frost with the cream cheese frosting.

And add sprinkles because sprinkles make everything better!!

And there you go! You have stepped up cupcakes with a surprise in the 
center that will have your family and friends smiling.
