Turn boxed cake mix into delicious cupcakes topped with apple pie filling, homemade streusel and vanilla ice cream.
Preheat oven to 350°F. Grease or line twenty-four 2 1/2-inch muffin cups with paper baking cups and set aside.
Chop one can of LUCKY LEAF® Premium Apple Pie Filling into bite-sized chunks. Reserve 1/2-cup of LUCKY LEAF® Premium Apple Pie Filling for topping.
In a large mixing bowl combine cake mix, eggs and LUCKY LEAF® Premium Apple Pie Filling. Beat with an electric mixer on low speed until combined. Beat on medium speed for 2 minutes (batter will be thick).
Fill prepared muffin cups about 2/3 full with cake batter. Bake about 20 minutes or until tops spring back when lightly touched.
Cool in cups on a wire rack for 5 minutes. Remove from cups and cool completely.
For streusel: In a small skillet melt butter over medium heat. Add brown sugar and stir to combine. Add pretzels and pecans. Cook and stir for 1 minute. Remove from heat and set aside.
Place each cupcake on a dessert dish. If using paper cups, pull paper down around bottom of cupcake. Top cupcake with a small scoop of ice cream, then top with reserved LUCKY LEAF® Premium Apple Pie Filling and streusel.
