Caramel Apple Bites

One of my favorite thing’s about Fall time is all the yummy food and treats. Pumpkin, apples, cocoa, caramel, chai, and soup are definitely the top ones! Sometimes the recipes for these foods are really complicated or time consuming, but this one isn’t. It did take a little bit longer than usual with the different steps but it was totally worth it. They turned out very good, everyone in my family loved them! I hope you enjoy this recipe as much as I did and have fun making it!
