Caramel Apple Muffins ~ Love Caramel Apples? Get all the flavor in these muffins full of caramel bits, cinnamon and apples!
Do you love caramel apples as much as me? The just say “Fall” to me when I see them coming out on store shelves. But they are so messy! Who’s with me on that?
That’s why I adore these little Caramel Apple Muffins. I get all the flavors of a caramel apple stuffed into a muffin. What’s not to love about that? They are the perfect breakfast treat to warm your belly up on a brisk fall morning. Just ask my brother-in-law.
He called the other Saturday morning and we may have been still in bed at 8 am. Shhhh don’t tell anyone. When I heard he was coming over because he was missing Miss K, which who wouldn’t miss that kid, I bounded out of bed and ran to the kitchen to surprise him with these muffins. Great sis-in-law aren’t I?
He was welcomed into our house to the sweet aroma of cinnamon baking away in these perfect little muffins. My husband promptly inhaled 5, yes I said 5, of these muffins so I think they are definitely a keeper!
