The Fall season is right around the corner and all the yummy seasonal candies are out in the stores already! I posted a link to my Fall Recipe Round-Up that I put together last year and I’ll be adding all of this year’s recipes to it as I make them. This cupcake is the first one of the season!
I saw a bag of new mini Milky Way candy bars at the PX last week… Caramel Apple in flavor. Interesting… very interesting, I thought. But once I popped one in my mouth, the combination of smooth caramel and the apple flavored nougat all covered in chocolate I knew I needed to make a cupcake!
So, I took my favorite chocolate cake recipe for the cupcake, filled with the chopped apples covered in caramel sauce and topped it with a caramel buttercream, caramel drizzle and a Caramel Apple Milky Way bar. I’ve done some apple cupcakes in the past, but none with a chocolate base…. GENIUS I tell you!! DELICIOUS even more!
So… run to Target and find a bag of these and make these cupcakes! Perfect transition into Fall flavors!
