Tasty Caramel Apple Cupcakes

Fall Recipe

With the arrival of October it really is starting to feel like fall. Time to embrace the cozy habits of warm blankets and fall spices. I love the idea of caramel apples, but they are not terribly easy to eat, are they? So when I saw this version of caramel apple cupcakes, I knew I had to share it with you! Because it uses a boxed mix, it's quick and easy to make.

What you need

  • 1 box of carrot (or spice) cake mix
  • 2 cups chopped, peeled tart apples
  • 20 caramels
  • 3 tablespoons milk (preferably 2%)
  • 1 cup finely chopped pecans (optional)
  • 12 wodden skewers

How to make them

  1. Preheat oven to 350°F
  2. Add paper cupcake liners to a 12-muffin pan
  3. Prepare cake batter according to package instructions. Fold in chopped apples. Fill cupcake liners 3/4 full. 
  4. Bake until a toothpick comes out clean, about 20 minutes. Let cool 10 minutes before removing from pan, then let cool completely on wire rack.
  5. Add caramels and milk to small saucepan and melt over low heat while stirring constantly. Spread caramel mixture over cupcakes and sprinkle with pecans (optional). Add a wooden skewer to each cupcake.
