Fall Treat: Caramel Apple Bites

This morning, I had a brilliant idea to make something tasty for breakfast, not the usual cereal or nutritional shake. I had some green apples and crescent rolls in the fridge...and upon closer inspection, I found some caramel apples dip as well.


I don't really know a super name for these, but 'Caramel Apple Bites' as a name is descriptive, so works for me. And the combination reminded me of Fall, baked apple pie, and caramel apples on a stick. Mmmmm...I'm licking my lips just thinking about eating them.

Would you like to make your own? I thought you might :)

You will need:
-1 pkg refridgerated crescent rolls
-1 small-medium granny smith apple (or any apple you prefer)
-A knife and/or apple slicer
-Brown sugar
-Ground cinnamon
-Baking dish or cookie sheet
-Non-stick spray for dish/sheet
-Caramel syrup or dip (pre-made or home made will work)

You can also add butter and/or sugar to the tops of the crescent rolls, but I chose not to because I planned on the caramel sauce to be the sweet topping. Go ahead and personalize them how ever you like: with chocolate instead of cinnamon and brown sugar, with apple chutney filling, or maybe use filo dough or any other dough instead of crescent rolls. Just have fun customizing to your family's taste!

Okay, let's begin:

1. Grab your ingredients & preheat oven to 375 degrees (or the temp requested on the crescent roll packaging).

2. Slice your apples: I used the slicer, then cut the apples slices in half lengthwise.

3. Lay out the crescent roll triangles, sprinkle with cinnamon and brown sugar (how much you use is up to your personal preference).

4. Add a slice of apple to the widest part of the triangle, then roll the crescent roll up around the apple.

5. Place rolls onto greased cookie sheet/baking dish.
6. Bake in oven. Time will vary by oven, but mine took approximately 11 minutes to cook through.

7. Take Apple Bites out of the oven, and dish them out. Then drizzle caramel syrup/sauce over the Apple Bites...this is an important step: it's what turns them into Caramel Apples Bites :)
Now take one last look at your yummy breakfast, before it disappears into your tummy.

Widget loved them! She even ate them whole (as in she didn't take the apple out to eat separately, like I expected) then she proceeded to lick her plate clean....which I can't take credit for since I didn't make the caramel sauce. I hope you enjoy them, as well!
