CARAMEL APPLE CUPCAKES
(from Allrecipes)
"Cute spice-apple cupcakes with dreamy caramel frosting even have sticks to make them look like candy apples."

INGREDIENTS:
1 (18.25 oz) package spice cake mix
1 1/3 cups water
1/3 cups vegetable oil
3 eggs
1 large Granny Smith apple, cored and chopped
35 carmels
¼ cup evaporated milk
½ cup chopped peanuts (or other, if preferred)
24 wooden sticks

DIRECTIONS:
1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Line 24 cupcake cups with paper liners
2. Place cake mix into a large bowl, and pour in water, vegetable oil, and eggs. With an electric mixer on low speed, beat until moistened and combined, about 30 seconds. Increase mixer speed to medium, and beat for 2 minutes. Stir in the chopped apple, and fill the prepared cupcake cups about 2/3 full.
3. Bake in the preheated oven until lightly browned and a wooden toothpick inserted into the center of a cupcake comes out clean, about 20 minutes. Remove cupcake pans to a wire rack to cool.
4. When cupcakes have cooled, melt the caramels with evaporated milk in a saucepan over low heat, stirring constantly until smooth and combined, about 4 minutes. Apread the carmel icing over the cupcakes, and sprinkle with chopped nuts. Insert a wooden stick into the center of each cupcake.
