A Little Bit Sticky..

Over the weekend we had some friends over & I knew it would be the perfect time to make the Carmel Apple Cupcakes that I read about in the Rachael Ray Magazine, that way everyone else would eat them all up & I wouldn’t be left with jeans any tighter than they already are.
These cupcakes were pretty good, not as GREAT as I thought they were going to be, but they were all eaten up by time our guest left. (That probably had something to do with the fact that we had 5 guys over who had just played in a soccer game!) We couldn’t find any Rome Apples at the store, so we used another kind, which I’m sure makes a difference in the cupcakes!
Anyways, here’s the recipe! If you end up making them, let me know how they turn out for you!

Carmel Apple Cupcakes!
Makes: 12           Prep: 20 min.     Bake: 30 min.
1 ¾         cups FLOUR
2              teaspoons BAKING POWDER
½             teaspoon ground cinnamon
½             teaspoon salt
2              eggs, at room temperature
½             cup packed light brown sugar
½             cup granulated sugar
2              teaspoons pure vanilla extract
2              rome apples (about 1 pound),
                pealed and shredded
1 ½         coups chewy caramel candies
1              tablespoon heavy cream
1) Arrange a rack in the upper third of the oven and preheat to 350.
Line a cupcake pan with baking liners. In a large bowl, whisk together
flour, baking powder, cinnamon and salt.
2) In a medium bowl, whisk together the eggs, brown sugar and
granulated sugar until smooth. Whisk in the oil and vanilla. Stir into
the flour mixture until just combined; stir in the apples. Spoon the batter
into the prepared pan until almost full. Bake until golden and a toothpick
inserted in the center comes out dry, 25 to 30 minutes. Transfer to a
rack to cool completely.
3) In a small, microwavable bowl, combine the caramels and cream.
Microwave for 1 minute at medium power, then stir; repeat in
30-second intervals until melted and smooth. Let cool. Spread the
frosting generously on the cooled cupcakes.
