How to Make It

  1. Preheat oven to 375°.

  2. Prepare cake mix according to package directions. Stir in vanilla.

  3. Place 33 foil muffin cup liners on a large baking sheet, or place in muffin cups. Divide batter evenly among liners, filling about two-thirds full.

  4. Bake at 375° for 17 to 18 minutes or until cupcakes are golden brown and cracks in cakes appear dry.

  5. Chop apple pie filling in a food processor. Set aside.

  6. Cut a deep slit in top center of each cake to form a pocket. Carefully spoon 1 tablespoon chopped apple pie filling into each warm cake.

  7. Spoon about 2 1/2 teaspoons Caramel Glaze evenly over each cake. Sprinkle about 2 teaspoons granola over each cake.

  8. Note: Nutritional analysis totals include Caramel Glaze.
