What can you find in Gooseberry’s latest cookbook? Delicious Caramel Apple Cupcakes made with a cake mix.
You will find Everyday Recipes, Slow Cooker Recipes, and Cupcakes & Cookie Recipes in Gooseberry Patch Simple & Satisfying Cookbook. Since I was cooking the pregame meal for my son’s high school football team, I needed a couple of desserts to go with the meal I had planned. This cookbook arrived in the perfect time. I could not wait to make the Praline Brownies, Caramel Apple Cupcakes, and the Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Cupcakes. They were all super easy to make and turned out great. They also made a huge touchdown.
Since this post was getting so long, with the recipes and pictures of these desserts, I decided to add two posts today. This first post includes Praline Brownies and Caramel Apple Cupcakes the second post contains Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Cupcakes.
