Punkin' Pie Cupcakes with Salted Caramel Crunch

Punkin’ Pie Cupcakes with “Salted Caramel” Crunch

What to call these, what to call these?

Cupcakelettes? Blondies? Muffincakes? Punkin’ Pie Cupblondiecakes?

Not quite a cupcake but not quite a muffin. (What’s the difference, anyway? No really, that’s a question.)

Chewy like brownies, so do I put ’em in a pan instead of muffin liners ‘n call it a day?

Dang, I need help! 😊

Oh and PS, yes I do realize there’s no actual pumpkin in here but these really do taste like they’d be called Punkin’ Pie.

If you have any name ideas, drop me a line, for real.

Ok well, while I ponder the mysteries of the universe, here’s the recipe. It’s soooooo delicious! Enjoy!
