Its that season when everyone starts making Apple Pies and Apple Crumbles. I personally do not care much for Apples Pies but I love love a good Apple Crumble! Then you add the idea of some salted caramel drizzled on top and wow, can that sound any better!
With that said, yesterday whilst perusing through Target I was looking for some cupcake liners and right there was a Pillsbury cake box Caramel and Apple flavored. That is something that made me curious. I am not the kind of person that makes cakes out of boxes, but every once and a while I like testing them out, especially when they have funky flavors that I like!
Instead of making the cake, there was an option on the box to make Salted Caramel Apple Crisp Bars and I was immediately sold on the idea!
Follow the recipe on the box, I am sure it will come out real good or you can add my little twists to it as stated below……
- After I chopped the apples I tossed them in some cinnamon and a squirt of lemon juice
- I added 1/8 cup extra oats to the topping crumble part for extra crunch
- Instead of using the Pillsbury Creamy Supreme Caramel Apple Frosting I used my own Salted Caramel Sauce
They actually became a delicious fall treat, the tartness of the apples complement the sweetness of the caramel perfectly, the smell of the baking apple caramel in the house together with the smell of my lovely “Fireside” candle definitely made our house in Florida smell and feel like fall!
