Caramel Apple Bars
Total TimePrep: 25 min. Bake: 25 min. + cooling
These bars are terrific! You have to watch the melting caramels to keep from scorching. Using a double boiler would help. I used half Kraft caramels and half boiled cider caramels from this recipe: https://leitesculinaria.com/106858/recipes-apple-cider-caramels.html The boiled cider adds an intense apple flavor. I don't think I would make caramels from scratch just for this recipe, but I had made a batch and had a lot left over since Halloween was a bust this year...
After reading the reviews regarding melting the caramels, I substituted a 7.7oz jar of King's Cupboard Organic Caramel Sauce, which is available from Kingarthurflour.com. I ordered 2 jars and found that 1.25 jars were perfect. Will use the rest as ice cream topping. Delicious recipe!
I made these a lpng time ago and still remember the good caramel apple taste!! Yum!!
Terrible recipe came out awful. The topping never melted browned. To fix it I ended up pouring brown sugar and melted butter on the top. We'll see if they taste good.
This is amazing! The next time I make it, I will make it without the caramel sauce as it ended up a little watery except for around the edges where it was chewy. I'll drizzle it with caramel sauce when I serve it. Otherwise it was perfection!
Just made these for our adult kids' fall birthday party. (They were all born in the fall.) These bars were a big hit. I made them as written but omitted the nuts due to allergies. Unwrapping all the caramels and then worrying about them burning was a pain. Next time I will try warming a jar of caramel ice cream topping and drizzling that over the apples.
these are great. We use ice cream on top of each bar or they are toooo rich!
Eat these hot with a dollop of vanilla ice cream and you will enjoy a little piece of heaven.
The caramel burned when I went to do something else, so I did not use it. But the bars were very good without it!!! I eat them cold.
