How to make Caramel Apple Bars

How to Make Caramel Apple Bars

Caramel + local apples = the perfect fall dessert! The recipe below is slightly modified from the original recipe posted on the Goetze's Candy Company website. These decadent bars didn't stand a chance in my house! They are very moist and the gooey caramel topping is to die for.


For the caramel topping:
10 oz bag of Mini Cow Tales (Cow Tales unwrapped and chopped into 1 inch pieces)
1/4 cup evaporated milk (I didn't have any evaporated milk and used this substitute)
1/2 stick of butter

For the bars:
1 cup flour
1 tsp baking powder
1/4 tsp salt
1 stick of butter
1 cup of brown sugar
1 large egg
2 tsp vanilla extract
3 small apples, cored, peeled and sliced thinly
2 tsp cinnamon


  • Preheat oven to 350.
  • Grease an 8×8 baking pan.
  • In a small bowl mix flour, baking powder, and salt.
  • Toss the sliced apples in a separate bowl with the cinnamon.
  • Melt 1 stick of butter over low heat. Remove from heat and add brown sugar. Stir until well blended.
  • When butter/brown sugar mixture has cooled to room temperature, add vanilla and egg- if the mixture is too hot, the egg will cook!
  • Add dry ingredients gradually to the wet ingredients. Gently stir in apples.
  • Bake for 25-30 minutes.
  • For caramel topping: warm butter and milk over low heat. Add Mini Cow Tales pieces and stir continuously until Cow Tales are melted and well blended with the butter/milk mixture.
  • When caramel sauce reaches room temperature, pour it onto the bars, and spread evenly.
  • Let bars sit 15-20 minutes before cutting and serving.
