Crisp, sweet apples are my favorite Fall flavor.
Why not celebrate the season with all the red deliciousness?
Candy Apples and Apple Juice, the perfect combination

Mini Candy Apple(sauce) Muffins...

Bowls of Candy Apple M&M's...

enjoyed with a refreshing glass of Mott's Apple Juice.
What could be better?

Mini Caramel Apple(sauce) Oatmeal Muffins are easy and delicious,
topped with M&M's and it is a treat you won't soon forget!

Mott's Applesauce and Apple Juice keep them so moist.

Once baked and topped with melted caramel, M&M's and an icing leaf 
(available in most craft stores)
an ordinary muffin is transformed into a caramel apple chocolate sensation.

Caramel Apple(sauce) Oatmeal Muffins
makes approximately 24 mini muffins

1 1/4 cups Mott's Applesauce
1 Tablespoon Mott's Apple Juice
1 cup Old Fashion Oats
1/2 cup unsalted butter, softened
1 cup sugar
1 tsp vanilla
2 eggs
1 1/2 cups flour
1 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp cinnamon
1/2 tsp nutmeg
pinch of salt

1 bag of soft caramels
Candy Apple M&M's or Red Milk Chocolate M&M's
Icing Leaves

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
In medium saucepan over medium heat, cook applesauce and apple juice until just boiling.  Remove from heat, stir in oatmeal and let stand 15 minutes.

In small bowl, combine flour, baking soda, cinnamon, nutmeg and salt. In another bowl cream together butter and sugar.  Add in vanilla and eggs then slowly combine in flour mixture then applesauce mixture.

Spoon batter in to mini muffin/cupcake pan filled with liners.  Bake approximately 14 minutes.

Once muffins have cooled.  Melt 4 caramel cubes at a time, combined with 1 Tablespoon of water in a small saucepan over low heat.  When melted, spoon mixture over muffins and gently spread with back of the spoon. Top with red M&M's and Leaf.  Repeat melting caramels and topping until all muffins are covered.

Candy Apple M&M's and my other new obsession, White Chocolate Candy Corn M&M's are available at Walmart in the Fall Candy aisle.
