Gluten-Free Chocolate Salted Caramel Cupcakes

Gluten-Free Chocolate Salted Caramel Cupcakes

These Gluten-Free Chocolate Salted Caramel Cupcakes take two of my favorite flavors and combine them into one. And the best part is they only contain 5 ingredients (not including water).

  • 1 (16-ounce) package Mina’s Purely Divine Chocolate Cake Mix
  • 1 cup water
  • ½ cup vegetable oil
  • 2 large eggs
  • cups prepared salted caramel sauce
  • 1-2 (12-ounce) tubs buttercream frosting
  1. Preheat the oven to 350°F. Line a standard muffin tin with cupcake liners.
  2. In the bowl of an electric mixer, combine the cake mix, water, oil, and eggs. Beat on medium speed for 2 minutes, scraping down the sides and bottom of the bowl once. (Alternatively, you can whisk by hand until fully combined.)
  3. Divide the batter evenly among the prepared muffin tins, filling almost to the top. Bake for 15 minutes or until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean. Let cool completely.
  4. Using a paring knife, cut out a cone at the top of each cupcake, about 1-inch deep. Fill each indentation with about 1 teaspoon of caramel sauce. Cut the tip off the cones and discard. Place the tops back on the cupcakes. Pipe or spread frosting on each cupcake and drizzle with some more caramel sauce. Refrigerate until serving.
Recipe Notes

The brand of cake mix used is noted in the recipe. Take note of how many ounces are in the mix so that if you need to substitute another brand, you can adjust the rest of the ingredients accordingly, if needed. The amount of frosting needed will depend on whether you pipe or spread the frosting on your cupcakes.
