These Caramel Apple Gooey bars are one of my favorite versions yet!
Okay, yes. I know I have a problem. A gooey bar problem.
I just can’t. Get. Enough!
And, well, you know me. When I find something I like, I buy 7. So…more gooey bars for you! But that’s not a problem, right?
YOU like gooey bars as much as I do!
And you’re gonna love these Caramel Apple Gooey Bars!
I seriously can’t stop thinking of combos. I mean, stand in the candy aisle at Walmart for a minute and just imagine.
Peanut Butter Cups.
Rolos. That’s what spawned these. Rolos are amazing – caramel and chocolate. Two things that go so well with apple.
These bars, as usual, start with a cake mix. I used a yellow cake mix. (I’m partial to Duncan Hines.) You make a dough out of it, and press half into the pan.
Then you spread apples and Rolos on top. And give those a bath in sweetened condensed milk. Topped with the rest of the cake mix dough, you bake and then swoon in delight.
Apples + Caramel + Chocolate = Good.
A note about the recipe: I didn’t pre-cook my apples, so they’re a little chewy. I wanted them that way in this. If you can’t stand that, then pre-cook them. It won’t affect the rest of the recipe, and I’ve made a note in the recipe itself.
Either way – these are the perfect way to use up those apples from the orchard.
And the perfect excuse to buy Rolos.
Not that you really need an excuse. Those suckers are good!
