Easy fall dessert and made with 7 ingredients, Baked Caramel Apple Crisp Dessert tastes like caramel apples! Serve warm with scoops of vanilla ice cream.
This recipe for apple crisp dessert has a story to share. While on vacation at a lake house in Minnesota, I went wine tasting with my girlfriends. One beautiful winery had gorgeous Honeycrisp apples for sale.
That box of apples caught my eye, and then this happened…
Can you handle what is happening here?
True confession: I made this apple crisp recipe twice in a couple days at the lake house. Can you believe that?
And there were several happy people enjoying our apple crisp dessert, and it became a “breakfast situation”.
Served with coffee, it was incredible. After dinner with ice cream, it was a huge hit.
- 8 cups sliced Honeycrisp apples
- 14 oz pkg. caramels each caramel cut in four pieces
- 3 cups oats

Gooey melted caramels and juicy Honeycrisp apples bake together in this apple crisp dessert and it tastes like, caramel apples! How can 7 simple ingredients come together and be so good?
Happy Fall Colors…
During our wine tasting adventure, the trees were in full color and it was beyond spectacular.
Who knew that wine tasting would lead to a new recipe? But hey, that is how it goes in my life. And I am so glad that Honeycrisp apples and I have become friends.These apples, are now my absolute #1 favorite!
Honey Crisp apples are super huge, juicy, sweet, firm, and tart which makes them great to eat raw. The Honeycrisp also retains its pigment well and boasts a relatively long shelf life when stored in cool, dry conditions.
The other thing that makes this recipe special, is that Honeycrisp apples were originally cultivated in Minneapolis, Minnesota back in 1974, and came to market in 1991.
Now this recipe will always remind me of our Minnesota vacation, what an awesome trip souvenir!
Lake vacations are deliciously relaxing…the sounds of lake life, the quiet, the pace.
So thankful, grateful, and blessed to spend time with my wonderful girlfriends in their family lake house cabin, on this gorgeous Minnesota lake. Memories were made on this vacation, making the Caramel Apple Crisp, our endless giggles, our canoe adventure, the wine tasting day, and our long chats at dinner, and walks through the fall colors.
Continue to enjoy fall and happy cooking!
All the Best,
