The windows are open and a cool breeze floats through my home. That breeze carries a rich, spicy smell that makes the air not only feel like fall, but smell like fall.
I have been in the kitchen today. Making a batch of Caramel Apple Cupcakes.
I used a box mix and whipped up a spice cake. Before baking I folded in 1 cup of diced apples. I made 24 cupcakes and then allowed them to cool completely.
For the topping you take 24 unwrapped caramels and 6 TBS of milk (I used whole milk) and melt over a low heat.
Dip the tops of the cupcakes into the caramel mixture and then roll in nuts. Insert a popsicle stick and you have a delightful treat!
I will refrigerate these. I am afraid that if I don't then the caramel might melt if it gets warm. Enjoy!
I hope you are taking time to enjoy the simple moments!
