Caramel Apple Streusal Muffins

Caramel Apple Streusal Muffins

Remember when we were kids and used to get caramel apples when trick or treating?  I missed those days until today. This muffin has caramel, apples and a delicious streusal on top. I don’t think I have ever made a better tasting muffin than this one!
