Friday Recipe of the Week – Taffy Apple Cupakes

These fun little treats are not only easy, but really cute and yummy too.  Great for a kids party or your upcoming Halloween party. Thanks Pinterest for another great idea. Our guests gobbled these right up the other night.

Taffy Apple Cupcakes – Serves 12 


1 package carrot cake mix, 1 C apples, cored, peeled and finely chopped, 1/2 tsp. cinnamon, 20 caramels, 1/4 C milk, 1 C walnuts, finely chopped, 12 wooden craft sticks

Prepare cake mix according to package directions. Stir in apples and cinnamon. Fill paper lined- regular muffin cups 2/3 full. Bake 350 degrees for 20-25 min. When cool pop out  muffins.

Combine caramels and milk in a saucepan over low heat. Stir until melted. Spread caramel over cooled cupcakes. Sprinkle nuts over the top and insert a craft stick in the center for effect.
