I always love the arrival of apple season as it brings with it such warm and wonderful fall flavors, and baking these caramel apple cups fills the kitchen with joyful aromas. Apple, cinnamon, caramel… they warm your heart before you even take a bite.
Caramel Apple Cups
Since they’re so easy to make, you’ll have them in your belly before long too!
Start by cutting up a package of refrigerated biscuits into pieces, and you need those oversized biscuits, not the little wimpy ones. Stir in chopped apples, melted butter, sugar and cinnamon and spoon into muffin cups.
Oooo, this is gonna be good.
Now bake those babies.
While the caramel apple cups are baking, prepare the caramel apple glaze on the stove.
When the caramel apple cups are done baking, drizzle the glaze over the top and serve while still warm.
If you can’t serve them while warm, don’t panic! They’ll still taste great… it’s just that warm apples and cinnamon are always a special treat. Plus, you can pop them in the microwave for a few seconds if you want to recapture some of that magic.
