Skinny Caramel Apple Spice Cupackes
I love to cook but when it comes to sweets I am not much of a baker. With fall right around the corner I wanted to make something that reminded me of the season. I love the Caramel Apple Spice Cider from Starbucks and thought it would be fun to create my favorite fall drink into a cupcake and make it somewhat diet friendly. Both my husband and toddler gobbled these up. They were so good and tasted just like the drink!
Skinny Caramel Apple Spice Cupcakes
Cal 131, Carbs 25.3, Fat 3.1, Protein 1.7
1 box Betty Crocker Spice Cake Mix
1/2 Cup Applesauce
3 eggs (I used Egg Beaters)
1 cup water
3 tbsp caramel sauce, divided (I used Smuckers)
Betty Crocker Whipped Cream Cheese Frosting
In a large bowl mix together cake mix, applesauce, eggs, and water. Mix until combined and smooth.
Evenly pour cake batter into 24 cupcake tins. Place a 1/2 tsp. of caramel sauce into the batter of each cupcake.
Bake at 325 for 20 minutes. Once completely cooled frost each cupcake with 1 tbsp. frosting. Enjoy!
