Preheat oven to 350°F. Make cake batter according to the box, or use your favorite yellow cake recipe. Take out your cupcake pan and put the paper linings in. Next take a spoon and put a small amount of batter on the bottom of the lining. There should be enough to cover the bottom evenly.
Stick into the oven and check on it every so often. When it appears as though the batter has 'puffed' up about half way take it out and deposit half of a caramel into one. If the caramel does not sink then go ahead and put the half of the caramels into the cupcakes. Pour more batter on top of the caramel and let it bake until golden brown.
Stick about a cup of chocolate chips in the microwave on high for about 30 seconds. Heat as needed and spread melted chocolate on cupcakes. Eat warm.
