SNAPPY TIPS: I didn’t chop my walnuts, but you could use chopped nuts. You can use more melted butter on top if the cake mix still appears dry.

SNAPPY SUBSTITUTIONS: Instead of caramel topping you could use butterscotch. Instead of walnuts you could use pecans or your favorite nut, or omit entirely. Instead of cinnamon you could substitute apple pie spice.
