Caramel Apple Cupcakes combine a moist apple flavored cupcake with the creamy homemade frosting you love. Filled with caramel and topped with a sweet and tart slice of a real caramel apple, they are not only delicious, but beautiful to make and share!
NOTE: Marzetti's caramel apple dip is usually found in the Produce section close to the Apples. If you cannot find this brand of caramel apple dip, simply use another brand of caramel topping, but, make sure it's thick and not runny, because it won't stick to the apples if it's runny. ALSO: Don't throw away the apples you cut the tops off of. You can either slice them up and place them in a Ziploc bag, and refrigerate them to be dipped in caramel dip for a snack, or you can save them to make a pie, or Apple Crisp, or to be eaten with cheese. You can slice and freeze them if you need to use them at a later time, and if you're in a hurry, you can pull them from the freezer ready to use. I freeze mine tossed in sugar, brown sugar and cinnamon for a pie. If you don't have time to make pie crust, simply use already made from the dairy case, and when you add the fresh apples, it's semi homemade, and so delicious! You can also serve the baked pie with caramel dip and ice cream for a really great dessert!
