Chocolate Marshmallow Caramel Cupcakes Recipe

Today, I’m headed to Reviewer’s Retreat. In fact, by the time this post goes live, I should be well on my way to Pine Mountain, Georgia. I figured I shouldn’t post something that I needed to report a link to someone on immediately. Then, I remembered that I shared a picture of the chocolate marshmallow caramel cupcakes I made on social media the other week. Since they are ridiculously easy to make, I thought I’d share the recipe with you. Also, please note, this is not a sponsored post. My mom purchased the supplies for these cupcakes and I thought up the combination because I thought it would be good.

Caramel Cupcakes

This whole thing came about because my mom loves caramel. As such, she made a point to buy a caramel cake mix and some caramel Duncan Hines Frosting Creations after learning about them. Then, she told me about them and then walked away. Haha! I took it to mean she wanted some caramel cupcakes. However, I decided to be more creative with them. I used the Chocolate Marshmallow Frosting Creations flavor packet we had on hand and created these things.


Chocolate Marshmallow Caramel Cupcakes
Recipe type: Dessert
Prep time: 
Cook time: 
Total time: 
Easy caramel cupcakes with chocolate marshmallow frosting.
  • Duncan Hines Signature Caramel Cake Mix
  • 1⅓ Cups Water
  • ⅓ Cup Vegetable Oil
  • 3 Large Eggs
  • 1 can of Duncan Hines® Frosting Creations™ Frosting Starter
  • 1 packet of Duncan Hines® Frosting Creations™ Chocolate Marshmallow Flavor Mix
  1. Preheat oven to 350. Combine the cake mix and ingredients (water, oil, and eggs) according to the box's directions.
  2. Place cupcake wrappers into a muffin tin. Then, pour the batter into the cups and bake following the box's instructions.
  3. Remove the cupcakes and allow them to cool. Open the can of Frosting Starter and pour the packet of chocolate marshmallow flavor mix into it. Stir it up.
  4. Frost the cupcakes.


See how easy that is? Now, I will say that I actually used 2 cans of frosting and 2 packets of flavor mix to frost all of the cupcakes. I did half of them in chocolate marshmallow for me and half in caramel for mom. She really liked the caramel on caramel cupcakes. I (along with my boyfriend and his family) enjoyed the chocolate marshmallow caramel cupcakes. So, what do you think of my concoction? Would you try it?
