Caramel Apple Bars

These decadent bars didn't stand a chance in my house! They are very moist and the gooey caramel topping is to die for.

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.


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


  1. Preheat oven to 350.
  2. Grease an 8x8 baking pan.
  3. In a small bowl mix flour, baking powder, and salt.
  4. Toss the sliced apples in a separate bowl with the cinnamon.
  5. Melt 1 stick of butter over low heat. Remove from heat and add brown sugar. Stir until well blended.
  6. When butter/brown sugar mixture has cooled to room temperature, add vanilla and egg- if the mixture is too hot, the egg will cook!
  7. Add dry ingredients gradually to the wet ingredients. Gently stir in apples.
  8. Bake for 25-30 minutes.
  9. 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.
  10. When caramel sauce reaches room temperature, pour it onto the bars, and spread evenly.
  11. Let bars sit 15-20 minutes before cutting and serving.
