Mini Caramel Apple Cupcakes

I made these mini cupcakes for a Halloween playdate.  There were a bunch of little ones in attendance along with their moms.  I wanted to make a treat that was festive, tasty and easy to eat.  One that both the kids and adults could enjoy.  These fit the bill and didn't disappoint.  The hardest part of the recipe was the caramel.  It dried really fast, so I had get my husband to help me put the toppings on before it dried.  These would be great for class parties or even Thanksgiving potlucks.  Enjoy!
