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.

Caramel, chocolate and vanilla go together very well, especially when they are in the form of these Rolo cupcakes. The chocolate cupcake batter contains a secret ingredient: a frozen Rolo shoved into the middle. The batter also has chocolate pudding, which makes these into a very moist, flavorful treat. Each cupcake is topped with homemade vanilla and caramel buttercream, and before chocolate ganache is drizzled over it. Add on another Rolo, just for kicks, and serve!

A stroopwafel is a dutch treat — a waffle-shaped cookie flavored with caramel and maple syrup. They even have caramel sauce on the inside, making them all of the more tasty. If you can’t find stroopwafel’s in a grocery store near you, these cupcakes are the next best thing. The batter is enhanced with a little ground cinnamon, maple syrup and caramel sauce, and the frosting contains more of the same (minus the maple syrup.)
