Caramel Apple Bars

Recipe by Amy020

This is from Warning: you can't eat just one! I'm generally a healthy eater but polished off several of these delicious beauties before they were even cool. YUMMMMMMM!

I've made this twice in the past week, it's delicious! I followed recipe to a "T" except I did add some apple pie spices to spruce it up and I also used caramel ice cream topping for times sake. Its super easy and my entire family loves it! Made it for a party as well and had to hand out recipe a few times. Will definitely be added to our permanent fall baking goodies:) Thanks for posting.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Heat oven to 400* F.
  2. Mix brown sugar, butter and shortening in large bowl.
  3. Stir in 1 3/4 c flour, the oats, salt and baking soda.
  4. Reserve 2 c of oat mixture; press remaining mixture in ungreased 13x9x2 inches pan.
  5. Toss apples and 3 T flour; spread over mixture in pan.
  6. Heat caramels over low heat, stirring occasionally, until melted; pour evenly over apples (don't worry if it's not perfect- caramel will even out during baking).
  7. Sprinkle with reserved oat mixture; press lightly.
  8. Bake 25-30 minutes or until topping is golden, apples are tender, and caramel is set.
  9. Store covered in refrigerator (if they last that long!).
