Scrumptious! You can use bottled caramel sauce to save some time, and it works just fine.

This was a tasty treat!!I cut the apples into big chunks and then put the pieces into my food processer and "pulsed" them until they were finely diced.I also added another teaspoon of water to the caramel mixture to give it a pouring consistency. I will be making this again; however,I will probably reduce the amount of marshmallows by half as we found the amount called for a little bit overwhelming for our tastes!!Tasted great warm or cold!!
I also tried this recipe from the Recipes Plus Calendar! I was attracted to it by the ww flour and the unpeeled apples. The only changes I made were to cut the amount of marshmellows in half and to add 1 tsp cinnamon to the oat mixture. Thanks for posting the recipe, Love2Eat! M&Mers
