Caramel Apple Cupcakes



  • 1 box white cake mix
  • 1 box (3.4 oz.) instant white chocolate pudding mix
  • 3/4 cup apple cider or juice
  • 1/3 cup oil
  • 4 large eggs
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon

  • 1 tablespoon all-purpose flour*



  • 1/2 cup caramel topping
  • 2 tablespoons finely chopped peanuts
