    Karen From Colorado's Note:

    These cupcakes will need an extra-large cupcake pan to hold all the pecans, topping and batter. They are wonderful served warm with ice cream or at room temperature with whipped cream.

      These were easy to make, and look very impressive when they are done. My family loved the caramel and pecan topping. I will be making this again!

      I believe this recipe is from Elinor Klivens "Cupcakes!" cookbook (the ingredient list looks the same). If so, they were very tasty!
