These Caramel Apple Bars are loaded with apples, walnuts, and caramel. Try it warm with a scoop of vanilla ice cream for an awesome 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 I just wanted too. Not because I needed anything. The pantry 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 apples that were in my refrigerator. This caramel apple bundt cake is usually my go to fall cake recipe, but I wanted to do something different.
This bar dessert is kind of like a 7 layer bar except it uses caramel dip instead of the traditional sweetened condensed milk. 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!
One of these warm bars with a big scoop of vanilla ice cream on it is to die for! Trust me on that one!
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.
