I got inspiration to make some fun caramel apple cupcakes from chokylit a while back, but didn't do them. This year I remembered to do them. Now I'm a single mom and with this economy I'm using Duncan Hines to make the batter. I added 1/3 cup apple marmalade to the batter. I made a marshmallow icing and added a few chunks of melted then cooled caramel and caramel sauce to the icing. I dipped the cooled cupcakes in the batter, added a cinnamon stick to look like the core and threw some sprinkles ontop. Kids love the sprinkles. This cupcake is very sweet. Drink plenty water.
1 jar (7 oz)
1 pkg (16 oz)

Blend in 1 Tb of the milk. Add remaining 1 Tb milk if necessary for desired spreading consistency.
