Description

Caramel apple in a bar form? Yes, please! If you are looking for a unique (easy) treat this one is a winner. Perfect fall dessert. Or anytime for that matter.

Ingredients

  • FOR THE CRUST:
  • 1 cup Butter
  • 1 cup Brown Sugar
  • 2 cups Quick Oats
  • 1 cup Flour
  • ½ cups Chopped Pecans
  • 1 teaspoon Baking Soda
  • 1 teaspoon Cinnamon
  • ¼ teaspoons All Spice
  • FOR THE FILLING:
  • ½ cups Sour Cream
  • ¾ cups Sugar
  • 3 Tablespoons Flour
  • 1  Egg
  • 2  Medium Granny Smith Apples (cored, Chopped/shredded, See Note)
  • ½ bags (11 Oz. Size) Kraft Caramel Bits
  • FOR THE DRIZZLE:
  • ½ bags (11 Oz. Size) Kraft Caramel Bits
  • ¼ cups Whipping Cream

Preparation

Preheat oven to 350 F.

For the crust:
In a large bowl cream butter and sugar. Add oats, flour, pecans, baking soda, cinnamon and allspice. Press half of the crust mixture in to a 9×13 pan. Bake at 350ºF for 8-10 minutes.

Meanwhile, make the filling.

For the filling:
Mix sour cream, sugar, flour, egg and apple in a bowl.

When it’s done, remove the crust from the oven. Sprinkle the caramel bits over the hot crust. Then pour filling mixture over that. Last, crumble the remaining crust over the top and lightly press down.

Bake an additional 25-30 minutes. Remove it from the oven and set dish on a rack. Let it cool before cutting for an easier cut.

For the drizzle:
Melt caramel bits and the whipping cream in a saucepan over low heat and drizzle over the top of the bars.

Note: You can chop, shred or put apples in a food processor. I like to just process them in the food processor. Also, I leave the skin on one apple and peel the other. You can peel both or leave the skin on. I like a little bit of the flavor and color from the apple.

Wow. This stuff is delicious. It’s definitely not something you want to eat every day for dessert, lots of butter and sugar :) but it’s a delicious treat when you want something special. I thought there wasn’t enough of the apple mixture, so I did 1.5 of what it called for, will double next time because it could use even more apple. I used less sugar in everything because I don’t like things to be over the top and I didn’t use any nuts because I didn’t have any. I also want to try it next time with homemade caramel sauce, that would totally make it over the top. Thanks for such a yummy fall recipe!
