Caramel Apple Cupcakes

Caramel Apple CupcakesIt is time for The Secret Recipe Club

Yes, I know how time flies, and must say this is the quickest I have ever made my chosen selection. I was assigned From Chapelhill to Chickenville this time around, and I think I made my assignment about two days later. After reading through every single recipe I finally decided to give these Caramel Apple Cupcakes a try. They were delicious! Even my husband, a I would rather have chips than a dessert sort of guy, really liked them. I tried to whip that icing up into a frosting but mine still turned into more of a glaze but hey that was one yummy glaze and the caramel portion of this recipe makes your house smell divine. All my kids came in from the park proclaiming the house smelt like Christmas. Make these, enjoy these, I highly recommend!

Caramel Brownies

BrowniesI’ve got to say, I love me some brownies. I tend to especially like brownies with add-ins. Like nuts, or a mint layer. Chopped oreos, mixed cherries. I’ll even take them plain, or with icing. I think I may have found a new favorite though. A nice layer of gooey caramel in the middle and chocolate chips because extra chocolate is never a bad thing.

Original recipe from AllrecipesCaramel

  • 1 (14 ounce) package individually wrapped caramels, unwrapped
  • 1/3 cup evaporated milk
  • 1 (18.25 ounce) package chocolate cake mix
  • 3/4 cup butter, melted
  • 1/3 cup evaporated milk
  • 1 cup semisweet chocolate chipscrumbled topping

1. Mix together cake mix, melted butter and 1/3 cup evaporated milk. Press half into a greased 13×9 inch pan. Cook for 10 minutes at 350 degrees.

2. While the brownie is in the oven melt caramels and 1/3 cup evaporated milk in saucepan over low heat until smooth.

3. When brownie comes out of oven pour caramel mixture on top. Top with chocolate chips.

4. Using your hands crumble remaining dough on top of chips. Bake for an additional 15 minutes.

5. Cool in refrigerator until caramel has set. Cut into bars.
