Caramel Apple Cupcakes!!

Yes, Carmel Apple Cupcakes... can fall get anymore delicious?! These were so much fun to make!! My house smelled AMAZING!! I don't think I've ever baked anything that smelled as good as these cupcakes did!

A pretty lil picture of all of the ingredients:

Apple Caramel Duncan Hines Cake Mix, 35 caramels, 1/4 cup Evaporated Milk, toppings, popsicle sticks, pumpkin cupcake wrappers =)

I used Duncan Hines "Apple Caramel" cake mix for the cupcakes. DELICIOUS. It has real apples in the cake mix as long as a caramel pouch you mix in the batter. Yum!

For the caramel topping, I used 1/4 cup of a Carnation's Evaporated Milk & 35 caramels. I cooked it on low & continually stirred it until it was all smooth & creamy.

For the toppings, I used what I already had on hand: honey roasted peanuts, candy corn autumn mix, & of course . . . SPRINKLES!

After they were all dressed up, you stick the Popsicle stick in the middle & wooolah!

Cute little things!!

They were DIVINE!

Happy Fall!!
