Preheat the oven to 350°F degrees. This recipe makes 16-18 cupcakes, so prepare one pan (or maybe two) with cupcake liners.
Melt the caramels, butter, and milk in a microwave-safe glass or ceramic bowl in 30-second intervals, stirring after each melting. Set aside to use in the buttercream recipe as well as the caramel drizzle.
