This Cake Stuffed Caramel Apple On A Stick recipe is a fun way to eat baked apples this fall. They look like caramel apples and have a spiced cupcake inside.
I already posted Caramel Apple Cupcakes but it got me thinking about another kind of caramel apple cupcakes where the cupcake is actually baked inside the caramel apple. It took me a few tries, but I love how they turned out.
In this Cake Stuffed Caramel Apple On A Stick recipe, the hollowed out apple becomes an edible cupcake wrapper and everything is covered in caramel to make it even more fun!
