These were awesome. Made them yesterday and everyone loved them. The reason I gave them 4 stars instead of 5 is because the caramel topping is really, really chewy. Not what I expected on top of a cupcake. We left the nuts off because the kids won't eat nuts and we left out the stick, but I bet that would be perfect for a party. After sitting all night the caramel on top became runny (not sure why) and it ran off the top and down the sides of the cupcakes. Glad we made them the same day we needed them. Next time I will make a regular caramel icing to put on top, not just caramel mixed with a little bit of evap. milk.
The caramel hardened before I could even put the peanuts on top - all the peanuts fell off. In addition, it was hard to take a bite out of the cupcake because of the touch caramel.
Great fall dessert. I tried these out and wasn't crazy about the frosting so I tried them again with Caramel Frosting IV and mixed in some the the caramel frosting that this recipe calls for and it was much better. I also put extra apple in the cake and I liked it better also
OMG!!! These cupcakes are AMAZING!!! I couldn't find spice cake mix, so I used yellow mix and put in two medium size apples. After reading some of the other reviews about the frosting, I decided to use vanilla frosting mixed with half cup of caramel dip/topping. It was fantastic!! I'm taking these to work tomorrow for a Halloween party and can't wait to hear what people have to say about them!!
These were wonderful! I used 2 medium sized McIntosh apples because they are just so great to bake with. Instead of using the caramels and evaporated milk I just frosted them with caramel frosting. They were amazing! I share a house with a bunch of girls and they were gone in hours. The apples made them so moist. This recipe is perfect for the fall.
The cupcake is awesome but the carmel topping gets to hard to eat like a cupcake... next time ill either do a carmel sauce or a frosting with a carmel drizzle.
I substituted the frosting by just mixing white frosting with caramel topping.
These sound cute...haven't made them yet...I give them 4 stars for such a clever idea, and I'm sure they are delicious! WHEN YOU MAKE THEM, POST A PICTURE! Wish I could see what they look like on a tray...they must be adorable! :-)
