"This recipe is from Quick Cooking - September/October 2001. I use the paper liners for the jumbo muffin pans because it makes for easier transporting of the cupcakes. They seem to stay fresher, too. These are great for a bake sale or even for a Halloween party."
Serving Size: 1 (79 g)
Servings Per Recipe: 12
"Super good flavor! I have a jumbo muffin pan but couldn't find the jumbo paper liners, so we made them in regular size liners. Needed to double the nuts and carmels for that. Subbed toasted walnuts for the pecans and it was still fabulous!The apple made for extra moist cake and not overly sweet. Will make them again, for sure!Thank you for posting this great recipe."
"Well these turned out to be quite a treat. Initially I was attracted by the popsicle stick idea but these proved big on that apple / spice flavor. I used a spice cake mix and I was able to find the texas-size muffin cups, the only thing I did different was to double the caramel / pecan mixture. My mistake was that I should have cut back on the milk, cause when I doubled it the mixture was quite runny making it rather difficult to eat these without a mess. Other than that I would highly recommend these as a change from the usual."
"Great cupcakes, but the serving size posted is not accurate. I wanted 24 cupcakes, so doubled the recipe...ended up with close to 40 cupcakes!"
"I made these for a bake sale at school, using the spice cake mix. Some people said they didn't like the apple in the cupcakes. Others were pleasantly surprised. The Popsicle sticks were a great idea. They smelled heavenly, too. The frosting was a slight problem though. It was hard to put on the cup cakes, and then it made the cupcakes really soggy after a few hours of sitting on top. Thanks for posting, but the next time I make them I'm going to be changing a few things."
"These cupcakes were pretty easy to make. I made them for 24 normal sized cupcakes. I used twice the amount of frosting ingredients. The only problem I had was with the frosting. It is hard to put on and then after all that work it melted and ran down all over the cupcakes. So if the weather is warm at all make sure to store in the fridge. Thanks."
"caramel apples cupcakes! I never herd something so yomy mmmmmmmmmm."
"Damn good recipe"
"Great flavour! I did have to use carrot cake as the spice cake mix proved to be quite elusive in my town. The cupcakes are nice & moist but the topping melted off & made eating very messy."
"Made them for Halloween party, needed more."
"I just made these for my preschooler's Christmas party. They are so tasty and the spice cake is delicious. I love the way they look after the popsicle sticks are added. I didn't use nuts though because of allergies. Make them!!!"
"Coffee filters are a good substitute for big muffin or cupcake liners. Enjoy........Judy"
