I made these for my friend's birthday knowing that her favorite candy bar is the 100 Grand bar. The idea for the icing came from the Peanut Butter Passion Cake recipe posted on this website. A big thank you for that recipie since I can imagine several variations. I love caramel and thought that they were absolutely divine! (This is my first recipe to post!)

Makes 24 Cupcakes

Ingredients

FOR THE CUPCAKE:

1 box
milk chocolate cake mix (do not substitute)
1 box
instant milk chocolate pudding mix
1 c
whole buttermilk
1/4 c
vegetable oil
4 large
eggs
1 tsp
vanilla extract

FOR THE ICING:

1 - 8 oz. pkg

1/2 c
confectioner's sugar
1/2 c
caramel ice cream topping
12 oz. pkg
non dairy whipped topping
16 small
100 grand candy bars, diced
gold sugar sprinkles

Directions Step-By-Step

1
Preheat oven to 325 degrees. Line muffin pans with paper liners (makes 24).
2
Combine all ingredients for the cupcake in a large mixing bowl and beat well, approximately 4-5 minutes. For uniform sized cupcakes, use an ice cream scoop to fill each liner. Bake approximately 18-20 minutes or until cupcakes spring back when touched lightly. Cool completely before frosting.
3
For the icing: (Best to do this step several hours or even overnight and refrigerate before icing cupcakes.) Using an electric mixer, beat the cream cheese with the confectioner's sugar until light and fluffy. Beat in caramel topping. With a spatula, gently fold in the whipped topping until well combined.
4
Pipe icing onto cupcakes. Dust with gold sugar and top with diced candy bar pieces. Keep refrigerated.
