These Caramel Apple Bars are an easy cake mix bar filled with apples, walnuts, and caramel. Drizzle the bars with a quick sugar glaze before enjoying this delicious fall dessert.
So, the other day I stopped at the grocery store for something. I walked in the door and down a few aisles before realizing that I had absolutely no idea what I was there for. Funny thing is that I still don’t remember what I needed. It must not have been that important.
I decided to just head down the baking aisle because…well, not because I needed anything. My shelves are fully stocked in chocolate chips and candy. But you never know what you might need or what you might find that just has to come home with you.
I am so glad that a spice cake and a container of caramel dip jumped into my cart while I was wandering the store. I really didn’t have any ideas of what I was going to make, but then my mind started to go a mile a minute thinking about all the options I could make with the Crunch Pak apples that were in my refrigerator.
This bar dessert is kind of like a 7 layer bar except it uses creamy caramel instead of the traditional sweetened condensed milk. Let’s just say I am so glad that my husband had a meeting at the church on the same day I made these. It would have been very dangerous for me to keep these in my kitchen. They were so delicious and gooey! Can you just imagine these with a big scoop of vanilla ice cream on it? Yeah, buddy! That just means I need to make another pan of these.
You know a recipe is good when someone texts you and asks for the recipe right away. One of the guys at the meeting wanted his wife to make these Caramel Apple Bars for him. He kept texting until I emailed the recipe. (I was out shopping when he started asking for it.) Then I might have forgotten to send it when I got home…apparently I have remembering issues.
Aren’t you glad I still remember how to bake?
Day two of apple week is definitely an apple success. I hope you had a chance to see the Peanut Butter Apple Pizza I made yesterday.
