"I couldn't find the caramel bits so I used a half a teaspoon of caramel topping for each muffin. It made a mess, but it was worth it. I used 2 tablespoons of butter for the topping and used more apples like others suggested."

"I just made a double batch! After making these three separate times I realized I needed to double it because they disappear so quickly. Instead of cutting caramels I used a bag of the Kraft caramel bits ( minus the few handfuls I threw in my mouth ). These are absolutely delicious!!!!"
