Anyone who has ever known me in life knows that I have a slight caramel addiction.
Growing up, give me the choice between chocolate and caramel and I’d always choose caramel. Toppings for ice cream? Caramel. Drizzled over fruit? Caramel. Cheesecake? Caramel again. You see what I mean. But now that I’m an adult, I choose…. both! Why? Because I can!
This caramel apple chocolate bark is no exception to my new rule. Chocolate and caramel go hand in hand in this dessert. I’ve been meaning to make caramel apples all season but the task has seemed a little too tedious – which I know, it is essentially dipping an apple in caramel. But you have to scrub the apples so that the caramel will stick and get the perfect sticks for dipping. This recipe is much simpler. It uses already dried apples for a no hassle dessert and has no sticks required! Win win in my book! Chocolate bark is one of my favorite holiday treats to make and I love coming up with different flavors such as pomegranate and pistachio chocolate bark and chocolate peppermint bark.
This caramel apple chocolate bark tastes just like a bite of fall. Warm cinnamon spices accent the chocolate layer with melted caramel sauce swirled in. Dried apple, pepitas, almonds and fleur de sel dotted on top. With an extra drizzle of caramel for good measure. You can’t get much more fall flavored then that! You’ll love how easy this dessert is to prepare for all of your fall gatherings!
