Couple of weeks ago I won a contest at Foodie Blogroll, and my delicious prize? 2 jars of Fat Toad Farm Caramel. I made a choice of Cinnamon and Vanilla Bean flavors. My caramels arrived in the cutest box with jars nested inside. I've been thinking of a dessert to make with it and few days ago I came across Apple Caramel Cupcakes and so here we are. Original recipe is from Cupcake Bakeshop.
My favorite part about these cupcakes is that they are not so sweet, I also altered the cream cheese filling recipe and used honey to sweeten it slightly. Caramel from Fat Toad Farm is wonderful, and surprisingly is not overpowering with sweetness as other caramels I've tried. So these I will most definitely make again, I'm already thinking of some fun variations too.
