Embrace fall with these delicious and crunchy Caramelized Apple Bites. They are like mini apple pies with a crispy shell!
The littlest kiddo loves apples. She loves them so much that if we drive by a fast food restaurant, she screams for “apples in a box,” meaning that she wants the apples in the kid’s meal…not the cheap toy or the french fries!
The problem with a toddler that love apples, is that she only will eat half an apple at a time. So I’m left with an apple I don’t know what to do with. I’ve been putting them in a container in the fridge, sprinkled with a little lemon juice to prevent browning.

The idea of these crunchy caramelized apple bites came about when I was going through my freezer. Last year I was sent a bunch of wonton, eggroll and gyoza (potsticker wrappers) for a this chocolate almond cream cheese wontons recipe.
These little bites are fun to eat and easy to make. The crunch from the wrappers is fantastic and these bites were devoured! They are quite an easy substitute for apple turnovers!
I had some Torani Caramel Sauce that I drizzled on top of the crunch caramel apple bites and it was delicious! You should try it!
