Caramel and apples are a great pair that come together in this easy dessert. This caramel apple dessert is a nice Fall twist on hot fudge pudding, a dessert my mom has been making since I was a young girl. This is a dessert that makes its own wonderful caramel sauce. You get a chewy delicious blondie type base with tender juicy apples and a yummy caramel sauce. Add in there the spice of cinnamon. Fall is here! Add a scoop of vanilla ice cream and your are set.
Also, I have a updated list to share today of my upcoming appearances. Two are this weekend. Then I have some cooking class thrown in there too. Should be fun! Hope to see some of you there!
