How-To
If you have only one 12-cup mini muffin pan, cover the extra dough to keep it from drying out. Bake one pan at a time, cooling the pan completely before refilling with dough.
Substitution
Other flavored liqueurs, such as Irish cream liqueur or coffee-flavored liqueur, can be used for the caramel-flavored liqueur.
