Run…run as fast as you can…and grab the ingredients for these Caramel Apple Nut Bars! But, be prepared to share them with your friends, neighbors, co-workers, family…anyone, because if you don’t…you will eat the whole pan full! Trust me…they are THAT good!
Like most bar cookies, these Caramel Apple Nut Bars are easy to put together and easy to serve. They start with a partially baked crust, topped with chopped apples, nuts and caramel topping, then more crust.
Apple season is early this year around here. The orchards already have some varieties gone. I think it’s because of the crazy weather we had in the Spring. But I’m not complaining, any excuse that I have to bake with apples is fine by me. Did you see the Caramel Apple Nut Cupcakes I made last Friday? They are frosted with a fluffy Marshmallow frosting…Yum!
Oh and the Homemade Apple Cinnamon Marshmallows…oh my! You MUST try them!
