A thick, soft brown sugar crust sandwiching a heaping apple layer that is drizzled with homemade caramel: you down widat?
It’s been way too long since I made dessert. And WHO EVEN SAYS THAT. Not me, normally.
For the majority of my life, I’ve been basically a walking sweet tooth. But the truth of the matter is that something happened to me after coming back from the Philippines or maybe after going sugar free for a period of time. Or also, as I’m getting older. 😑 But, ignore. I just don’t need the after-dinner dessert the same way I used to.
Don’t get me wrong – I have new vices. Mostly vices named salty chips, creamy dips, and all kinds of cheese.
So here’s the miracle of the moment: even though my epic sweet tooth has sort of abandoned me in the last few years, and even though I’m not one to normally choose an apple dessert (just gimme the chocolate already), these bars with their caramely apple layer tucked in by a brown sugar-y crust on both sides absolutely rocked my world in the best possible way.
