Ingredients Nutrition

  • 14 cup dry roasted peanuts
  • 2 large granny smith apples, peeled
  • 34 cup butterscotch caramel sauce, divided
  • 2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
  • 1 (15 ounce) package refrigerated pie crusts, softened according to package directions (2 crusts)
  • 12 caramels, unwrapped


  1. Preheat oven to 400°F
  2. Chop peanuts using Food Chopper; set aside for later use.
  3. Cut peeled apples lengthwise into quarters using Utility Knife. Lay each quarter cut side down; angle knife, cut out and discard core. Coarsely chop apples with Food Chopper. Combine apples, 1/2 cup of the caramel sauce and flour in Classic Batter Bowl; mix well using Small Mix ‘N Scraper®. Microwave on HIGH 5-6 minutes or until bubbling and thickened; stir and set aside.
  4. Meanwhile, unroll one pie crust onto lightly floured Cutting Board. Spacing closely together, cut 12 disks from crust using outer tube of Measure-All® Cup (nine around outside edge and three in center). Press disks into wells of Deluxe Mini-Muffin Pan using Mini-Tart Shaper, ruffling edges. Repeat with remaining crust.
  5. Cut caramels in half using Utility Knife; place one piece into each tart shell. Spoon apple mixture evenly into tart shells; sprinkle with peanuts. Bake 14-16 minutes or until edges of tartlets are golden brown. Remove tartlets from pan to Stackable Cooling Rack. Drizzle with remaining 1/4 cup caramel sauce. Serve warm.
  6. Cook's Tip: To easily drizzle caramel sauce over tartlets, place resealable plastic bag into Measure-All® Cup. Pour caramel into corner of bag. Twist top of bag; secure with Twixit! Clip. Cut corner off tip of bag to allow caramel to flow through.

These are very good. Next time I will use homemade pie crust and more apples (3 or 4). I used pecans instead of peanuts.

I am a Papmpered Chef consultant and used this recipe for the first time last week. It is awesome. You can substitute any fruit you'd like that goes good with caramel!

I make these for some of my cooking shows, except, I've found that taking out the caramel candy, andincreasing to 3 apples, 3/4 cup caramel sauce, and 3 Tbsp. of flour for the filling makes for an even better recipe :-)
