Caramel Apple Cupcakes

This is certainly more of a fall appropriate treat, but tempting year round to be sure!

Ingredients: Cupcakes (Makes 12)

1 1/4 C flour 
2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp cinnamon
1/2 tsp salt
2 eggs (at room temperature)
1/2 C brown sugar
1/2 C white sugar
1/2 C vegetable pil
2 tsp vanilla
2 baking apples peeled and shredded

Ingredients: Caramel Topping

1 1/2 C chewy caramels
1 T heavy cream


1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
2. Line cupcake tin with liners.
3. Whisk flour, baking powder, cinnamon, and salt.
4. Whisk eggs and both brown and white sugar until smooth.
5. Whisk in oil and vanilla.
6. Stir egg/sugar mixture into the flour mixture.
7. Stir in apples.
8. Spoon batter into lined tin until almost full.
9. Bake 25 to 30 minutes.
10. Cool cupcakes completely before adding caramel topping.

11. Combine cream and caramels and melt in microwave for 1 minute on medium power.  (repeat until fully melted)
12. Spread on cooled cupcakes, allow caramel to cool on top and serve.

* Keep leftovers in the refrigerator otherwise caramel will seep into the cupcake which tastes fine but you lose the gooey caramel coating on top which is a shame!*
