Dessert doesn’t have to be a formal dish served with a fork and spoon. This recipe is so good because it make finger food, so you might like to consider it if you’re preparing dishes for a buffet, potluck dinner or you want portable food for a boxed lunch. They’re also tasty served in a bowl with vanilla ice cream or whipped cream. In fact, however you choose to serve these caramel apple bites you’re definitely going to fall in love with their sweet, rich flavor.
A can of biscuit dough is handy for making these apple pie bombs, although you can make your own dough if you prefer. Crescent roll dough would work at a pinch, but biscuit dough gives more of an apple pie type texture, so that’s the best option here. Using caramels instead of a caramel sauce is also best, since caramel sauce won’t stick to the apple pieces as much.
Bite-sized sweet snacks are always wonderful and if you love apples, caramel and cinnamon sugar, this recipe is a no-brainer. Served hot, these are sure to put a smile on every face.
