Caramel Nut Cupcakes

Posted by cuppiecakes on January 30, 2009

I found this recipe online and decided to try these out.  They were very easy to make and very tasty.  They actually had more of a muffin texture than that of a cupcake.  I made them using the regular (not sugar-free/reduced sugar) cake mix, frosting, and caramel topping because I already had them in my pantry.  Here’s what  you need for the cupcakes.
Crisco® Original No-Stick Cooking Spray
1 (18.25 oz.) package Pillsbury® Reduced Sugar Yellow Cake
3 tablespoons Crisco® Pure Canola Oil
2/3 cup water
3 large eggs
3/4 cup Smucker’s® Sugar Free Caramel Spoonable Ice Cream Topping
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1 cup chopped walnuts
1/2 cup Pillsbury® Reduced Sugar Vanilla Frosting
1 tablespoon Smucker’s® Sugar Free Caramel Spoonable Ice Cream Topping


1 HEAT oven to 350°F. Place 24 paper baking cups in muffin tins. Lightly coat baking cups with no-stick cooking spray.
2 COMBINE cake mix, oil, water, eggs, 3/4 cup caramel topping and cinnamon in large mixing bowl. Beat at medium speed of electric mixer for 2 minutes. Stir in walnuts. Fill each baking cup with a scant 1/4 cup batter.
3 BAKE 25 minutes or until wooden toothpick inserted in center comes out clean. Cool completely on cooling rack.
4 PLACE frosting and 1 tablespoon caramel topping in resealable plastic bag. Knead until blended and smooth. Cut a small tip off one corner. Drizzle caramel frosting over cooled cupcakes.
TIP Be sure cupcakes are completely cooled before removing baking cup.
