Yum...yum... Carmel Apple Bites

Caramel Apple Bite


2 cup graham cracker crumbs (I used store bought in a can.  I find these to work the best)
12 tablespoons butter, melted
1/2 cup powdered sugar
4 cups peeled, cored and chopped apples (we used golden delicious)
1/3 cup sugar
1/4 cup brown sugar
2 1/4 tablespoons flour
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon nutmeg
Caramel topping (store bought!)

Preheat oven to 350 degrees
Grease pan with non-stick butter spray
Melt butter
In a medium size bowl mix graham cracker crumbs, powdered sugar and butter with a spoon (slowly add the butter and evenly distribute – PLEASE SEE UPDATE/NOTE BELOW)
Evenly distribute mixture to the 24 mini muffin cups. Press along the bottom and sides to make a “cup”
Bake for 5 minutes and let cool completely
Chop the apples into little pieces – I used a mini food processor.  Don’t puree, just finely chop
Mix apples, sugar, brown sugar, flour, cinnamon and nutmeg in a bowl
Bake in a baking dish for 15 minutes on 375 degrees, until apples are slightly softened
Scoop a teaspoon or so of the apple mix and place on top of the graham cracker crust cups (while still in the muffin pan)
Sprinkle any extra graham cracker on top of the apples (I had some left over!)
Bake for 5 minutes on 350
Let cool completely
Use a knife to loosen from pan and they should pop right out
Drizzle with caramel topping
