I asked Matt what he wanted me to make for dessert for our last camping trip. He said he wanted oatmeal cookies.
When he says "oatmeal cookies" he is actually referring to oatmeal raisin cookies... his favorite. Personally, I don't like oatmeal raisin cookies. There's just something about the texture of the raisins that doesn't sit well with me. So, I asked him if he'd settle for a different variety of oatmeal cookie and randomly tossed out the idea of caramel apple. He got pretty excited.
I used pre-bagged Kraft caramel bits (I found them at Target) and diced fresh apples and ended up with super soft and chewy cookies. I think it'd be impossible to dry these suckers out. I don't even care that caramel apple is usually a fall flavor... these hit the spot!
If you can't find the bagged caramel bits, you can use the larger individually wrapped caramel candies. Just unwrap them and cut them into pea-sized chunks and they should work just fine. Enjoy!Print
