Caramel Apple Crumble

Fall is such a wonderful season! Especially in Vermont where the folliage turn from bright shades of green into lovely jewel tones. Theres nothing better than taking in that scenery while breathing in the crisp autumn air.

Actually theres one more thing that I happen to love more than the pretty leaves changing color - caramel apples!

I wait each season for those sweet, tart, gooey treats to show up on my local grocers shelves to signal the beginning of fall and then proceed to buy as many as I can carry : j

Those yummy treats were the inspiration behind a quick dessert I made after scanning my fridge eagerly for the last caramel apple only to be disappointed after realizing that I probably ate it already. lol...

Heres a simple, grown-up, minus-the-stick version of the beloved caramel apple.
