I just cannot get enough of Halloween. I call this a ‘Semi-Homemade’ treat, because this time of year who has time to make anything from scratch?
What you need:
1 white cake mix
18 cupcake wrappers (red is what I used, but you can use any color)
2 apples (any kind) peeled & chopped
½ cup of white sugar
2 tsp of cinnamon
1 dash of nutmeg
1 can of caramel apple frosting
1 tube of red decorating gel
Here’s How to do it:
Prepare your cupcakes from mix using the directions on the box (it’s okay to make the whole egg version) for cupcakes, and prepare your cupcake pans. Bake and let cool.
Peel and chop your apples, in a medium sauce pan, add your apples, sugar, cinnamon and nutmeg, mix well. Slowly bring the mixture to a boil, stir occasionally. Reduce heat and let the apples cook until they are soft. Remove from heat and allow to cool.
Once your cupcakes have cooled, cut a circle in the top, remove that cake, fill with apple mixture and place the ‘top’ back on the cupcake.
With the red decorating gel make a line down the center of each cupcake. Using the frosting and a decorating tip, ‘swiggle’ lines down the cupcake.
That’s it. You are done, no trick!
