Caramel Apple Cakies

It’s time to start thinking about what you will do for your cookie exchange. If you want something a little different this year why not whip up these Caramel Apple Cakies? They are super simple to whip up as you use a box of Duncan Hines Caramel Apple Cupcake Mix and a few extra ingredients to make a super treat in no time flat.

I made these for a friend and had them put together in the blink of an eye. I think I was doing laundry, writing a few posts and cooking dinner all at the same time. No one has to know that they are super simple…you can still put on your super hero cape and wear it with pride 😉
