Ingredients

  • 11 oz. Kraft Caramels
  • 1/2 cup heavy cream
  • 2 Honeycrisp apples diced small
  • 1 cup flour
  • 1 cup rolled oats
  • 3/4 cup brown sugar
  • 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • 1/4 tsp kosher salt
  • 3/4 cup melted butter
  • 1/2 cup chopped pecans
  • 1 /2 tsp cinnamon

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 350°F. Peel and dice the apples, set aside.
  • In a small saucepan over low heat melt the caramels and heavy cream, stirring until smooth. Set aside to cool slightly.
  • Combine in a medium bowl the flour, oats, brown sugar, soda, salt and melted butter to form crumbs. Press half the crumbs into the bottom of a parchment lined 9x9" pan. Bake for 10 minutes. With the remaining crumb mixture I added a half cup of chopped pecans for flavor and texture.
  • Sprinkle the diced apples over the partially baked crust. Pour the cooled caramel over the apples, sprinkle cinnamon on top and remaining crumb mixture. 
  • Bake for 22 minutes. Allow to set and cool, middle might appear undone, but will set and firm up. Chill bars for 60 minutes for easy cutting.
