    In large bowl, beat 1/2 cup butter, 1/2 cup sugar, 1/2 cup caramel topping, the eggs and milk with electric mixer on low speed (mixture will appear curdled). Stir in remaining muffin ingredients just until moistened. Fill muffin cups 2/3 full.

    Bake 20 to 25 minutes or until toothpick inserted in center comes out clean. Cool 5 minutes. Meanwhile, in medium microwavable bowl, microwave 3/4 cup butter on High until melted. In small bowl, mix 3/4 cup sugar and the pumpkin pie spice. Remove muffins from pan. Roll in melted butter, then in sugar mixture. Drizzle with caramel topping. Serve warm.

Tips from the Betty Crocker Kitchens

  • tip 1
    All-purpose flour can be substituted for unbleached flour.
  • tip 2
    You can make your own pumpkin pie spice blend by mixing 4 tablespoons ground cinnamon, 4 teaspoons ground nutmeg, 4 teaspoons ground ginger and 3 teaspoons ground allspice. Store tightly covered and keep on hand to use in this recipe and others that call for it.
