My Chocolate Caramel Apple Pouches are my own spin on making a seasonal fruit dessert that the whole family will eat, and en

These little pouches of yumminess are amazing! All the wonderful flavors of apple pie without having a whole pie to deal with. It’s the best of both worlds with these scrumptious little pouches!

Sometimes I peel my apples, but sometimes I don’t. It just depends on what I’m making. Today I didn’t peel my apples. When making a regular size apple pie, I always peel my apples.

Moving on, be sure to always wash and dry your apples. But as far as peeling goes, that depends on your personal preference. There are a lot of vitamins and nutrients, not to mention fiber in the peel. Just saying...something to consider. :)

Notice how the drizzle is a deep golden brown color? That drizzle is SO good and SO tasty! It will definitely put a smile on anyone’s face!

316 This is almost your entire line up of ingredients. You will also need one egg, a little water, and a splash of milk or cream. Pretty easy, huh?

304Today I used store bought pie crust. If you prefer to make your crust from scratch feel free. Cut your rounds MMM.   2014-_09_23-306 This is one of my Chocolate Caramel Apple Pouches before it goes in the oven. There’s an egg wash on the outside and just a touch of sprinkling sugar, you don’t need much.

The chocolate caramel sauce photographs a little dark, but up close it’s the PREFECT color! But most importantly the flavor is WONDERFUL! The Milky Way Simply Caramel bites with just a splash of cream or milk make the best drizzle – the flavors of the caramel and chocolate really come together.

One warning, once you taste this stuff you will probably want to do a face plant in the bowl! The sauce is so simple and so good, keep it in mind for other treats. :)

Chocolate Caramel Apple Pouches

Ingredients:                                                                                              2015-01-27-340 Chocolate Caramel Apple Pouches

2 apples, peeled or unpeeled, each cut into 8 wedges

*I used one Fireside and one Honeycrisp because they are a couple of  my all-around favorite apples. Cortland or Granny Smith apples also work well. Use whatever kind you normally like to use in baking.

1 tablespoon lemon juice

1/4 cup sugar

1/2 – 1 teaspoon apple pie spice, depending on your personal preference

1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon

3 refrigerated pie crusts, brought to room temperature

Egg wash (1 egg slightly beaten with two teaspoons of water)

Crystal Sanding Sugar, optional

Drizzle:

1 cup Milky Way Simply Caramel Bites, cut into halves

4-5 teaspoons milk, or heavy cream

Directions:

1. Heat oven to 425 degrees F. Line 2 cookie sheets with parchment paper. The parchment paper keeps the crystal sanding sugar from making a mess all over your cookie sheets. In a medium bowl, toss apples with lemon juice. In a small bowl, mix 1/4 cup sugar, apple pie spice and cinnamon; toss the apples well to distribute evenly.

2. Allow pie crusts to warm up to room temp following the instructions on the package. Roll each crust to 10-inch round. Using 4-inch round cutter, cut out 16 rounds. Place 8 rounds on each cookie sheet. Place 1 apple wedge off-center on each round. Wet your pointer finger in a small cup of water, circle the outside edge with wet finger. Wrap and press edges together, seal with the prongs of a fork. Brush tops with egg wash; sprinkle with a small amount of crystal sanding sugar.

3. Bake 14 to 16 minutes or until crust is golden brown. Remove from cookie sheets to cooling rack; cool at least 10 minutes.

4. In small microwavable bowl, microwave Milky Way Caramel Bites and milk (or cream) uncovered on High 1 minute, stirring once, until chocolate-caramel can be stirred smooth. Drizzle chocolate caramel sauce over wedges.

Makes 16 servings.
