Ingredients

  • Cupcakes:
  • 1 15.25 oz box Caramel cake mix may use butter pecan
  • 1 cup International Delight Caramel Macchiato Iced Coffee
  • cup vegetable oil
  • 3 large eggs
  • ¼ cup light brown sugar
  • 1 ½ teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • Cream Cheese Frosting:
  • 2 8 oz blocks cream cheese, softened
  • ¼ cup butter, softened
  • ¼ cup International Delight Caramel Macchiato Iced Coffee
  • 1 ½ cup powdered sugar
  • 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
  • cup English toffee bits
  • ground cinnamon for dusting

Instructions

  • Preheat the oven to 350°F and line 16 muffin cups with liners. Alternately spray cups with cooking spray.
  • Place all of the cake mix, iced coffee, oil, eggs, brown sugar and cinnamon into a medium mixing bowl. Beat using a whisk or an electric mixer for 2-3 minutes until fully combined. Divide the batter between the muffin cups.
  • Bake for 22-25 minutes or until a toothpick inserted into the center shows moist crumbs. Cool completely.
  • To make cream cheese frosting: In a medium mixing bowl whip together the softened cream cheese, butter, iced coffee, powdered sugar and vanilla. Beat until fluffy and smooth around 3 minutes.
  • Frost the cooled cupcakes as desired. If using a piping bag, chill the frosting to firm before piping onto the cupcakes.
  • Dust with cinnamon and garnish with toffee bits.
  • Store chilled.

Notes

If you're unable to find caramel cake mix, butter pecan will work,
