Inside Out Caramel Apples are a fun fall treat. Fresh apples are cored and filled with caramel and sprinkled with cinnamon before being baked until tender. A sprinkling of pecans and a last drizzle of caramel makes them a wonderfully easy, delicious dessert.

Inside Out Caramel Apples are an easy weekday treat

As much as I enjoy the changing seasons, it’s definitely winter time here in Ohio now. It’s a mild winter, but still, you won’t find me spending nearly so much time outdoors as I might have a couple of months ago.

Yesterday evening found us curled up on the couch, sipping mugs of chai tea, while I considered making more of these apples.

As much as I love these warm, inside-out caramel apples exactly as pictured, I think they would also be delicious with a scoop of vanilla ice cream on top!

Caramel Filled Apples

If you’ve ever tried to eat a traditional caramel apple, you know how hard it is to get a good bite of caramel together with a good bite of apple.

When I try to eat one anyways, I always seem to end up eating the caramel off the apple first and then having a tart apple left at the end.

These inside-out caramel apples are a fun way to switch things up and enjoy delicious bites of caramel and apple together.

  1. Preheat oven to 350°F. Core each apple, leaving 1/2 inch of core at the bottom.
  2. Place each apple on a square of foil. Fill the hollowed appled with caramel sauce, sprinkle with cinnamon and 1 tablespoon of water. Wrap the apples in the foil and place in a baking dish.
  3. Bake for 25-30 minutes, or until the apples have softened. Remove from the oven and let cool a bit.
  4. Drizzle with additional caramel and sprinkle with pecans before serving.

Apple Desserts

As much as I love a great berry crisp or peach pie, (and thanks to a near-endless supply of frozen fruit options, they’re desserts we can and often do make year round) there is something about an apple dessert that just calls to me when the weather cools off.

Caramel Apple Crumb Bars have all the flavor of apple pie in an easy-to-make bar recipe with a pretty caramel drizzle on top!

Easy Apple Blondies are packed full of delicious fall apple flavors in a soft, cinnamon blonde brownie. Topped with a brown sugar frosting, no one can resist sampling these blondies.

Baked Apple Fritters are an easy donut shop favorite that you can make at home now. These fritters are baked instead of fried, making them an easy treat to whip up on a whim.

For a lightning-fast apple treat that you’re sure to love, try these Easy Skillet Apples too. They’re awesome by themself or served with ice cream.
