Preheat oven to 350. Prepare cupcake liners. Sift flour and next 4 ingredients into bowl ( if substituting sift all substitutions in) Mix liquids together in a measure cup then add to dry sifted ingredients. Quickly mix. Divide batter with disher equally among 20 cupcakes. Sprinkle tops with chocolate chips and desired bits. Bake in 350 oven for 23-25 minutes.
6 ounces cream cheese

This makes a LOT of frosting.
When cupcakes are cooled cut out a small cap for filling. Fill with 1 tablespoon strawberry Motts applesauce. Put plug back in. Frost over choc chips and dried fruits.
We found the cutest little apple mouths with almond teeth to decorate the tops in the disney fun section. Enjoy
