apt-cache show aptoncd
Description: CD-based repository creator for packages downloaded via APT
Tool for the creation of a CD-based repository containing all packages
downloaded via apt-get. Helpful for a post-installation on several
machines or a simple backup method to re-install the system.
The package is in the universe repository for feisty.
I have not tried it, but it looks like what you want...
