Ingredients

  • 2 cups graham cracker crumbs  (I used store bought in a can. I find these to work the best)
  • 12 tbsp butter  (melted)
  • 1/2 cup powdered sugar
  • 4 cups peeled, cored and chopped apples  (we used golden delicious)
  • 1/3 cup sugar
  • 1/4 cup  brown sugar
  • 2 1/4 tbsp  flour
  • 1/2 tsp  cinnamon
  • 1/4 tsp  nutmeg
  • Caramel topping  (store bought!)

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees
  • Grease pan with non-stick butter spray
  • Melt butter
  • In a medium size bowl mix graham cracker crumbs, powdered sugar and butter with a spoon (slowly add the butter and evenly distribute – PLEASE SEE UPDATE/NOTE BELOW)
  • Evenly distribute mixture to the 24 mini muffin cups. Press along the bottom and sides to make a “cup”
  • Bake for 5 minutes and let cool completely
  • Chop the apples into little pieces – I used a mini food processor. Don’t puree, just finely chop
  • Mix apples, sugar, brown sugar, flour, cinnamon and nutmeg in a bowl
  • Bake in a baking dish for 15 minutes on 375 degrees, until apples are slightly softened
  • Scoop a teaspoon or so of the apple mix and place on top of the graham cracker crust cups (while still in the muffin pan)
  • Sprinkle any extra graham cracker on top of the apples (I had some left over!)
  • Bake for 5 minutes on 350
  • Let cool completely
  • Use a knife to loosen from pan and they should pop right out
  • Drizzle with caramel topping
  • Enjoy

Notes

UPDATE/NOTE: Some people have found the crust recipe to work perfect, while some others found the 12 tablespoons of butter was way to much and the butter started to pool – you may want to start by using 1/2 C butter (1 stick vs. 1 1/2 sticks, or 12 T). Melt the butter and add slowly to the crumbs, a little bit at a time, making sure it’s not too wet. You can always add more or save the leftover butter for later. You want a soft dough that sticks together slightly when you try to form a ball, not a wet dough.
