Picture caramel apple pie, only in cupcake form. No, make that upside down cupcake form. Yes, you read that right. These caramel apple cupcakes start off with a yellow cake mix that is prepared according to its included instructions. Once you have that base, the fun begins. Butter, brown sugar and canned fried apples (yes, they do exist!) are placed on the bottom of each cupcake liner. The batter is poured over them. Bake, let cool, remove the liners and serve apple side up. No frosting required.
