They are the perfect fall treat or holiday dessert.  We love these and are going to be sharing them with our family this year.

After enjoying this fun twist on the classic apple pie, you may never go back! A tender, buttery sweet bread is stuffed with juicy tart apples in a creamy caramel sauce and baked to perfection. 

When you bite into one of these heavenly dessert bombs, a river of sweet caramel runs over them, making this a perfectly satisfying, sweet portable treat.


Before Munchkin was born (actually, the year I was pregnant with her), Chad’s mom taught us how to prepare a special family recipe that we have now been making together for years.

Munchkin even gets in on the action and helps.

That recipe starts with stuffing bread dough, and it inspired the invention of all of the scrumptious bomb recipes that we have made.

These explode with flavor and are loaded with ooey-gooey deliciousness.

This bread is super simple, great for a party, and can be prepped ahead of time if you're in a pinch when party planning. It's a great touch on a holiday table as an alternative to traditional rolls.

    Crazy Caramel Apple Pie Bombs

    Crazy Caramel Apple Pie Bombs are the pull apart bread of your dreams. This fabulous recipe is packed with caramel and apples and baked to perfection. Pull one open and a river of sweet caramel runs over the apple pie bombs.
    prep time: 15 minscook time: 30 minstotal time: 45 mins

    Ingredients

    • 4 tablespoons melted unsalted butter, divided
    • 2 medium apples, peeled cored and diced (I used gala)
    • 6 tablespoons light brown sugar, packed
    • 1 tablespoon ground cinnamon
    • 30 caramels, unwrapped and divided (I use Kraft)
    • All-purpose flour, (for dusting)
    • 12 frozen white dinner roll dough balls, (I used Rhodes)
    • 2 tablespoons heavy cream

    Instructions

    1. Preheat the oven to 350°F.
    2. Butter an 8 x 8-inch baking pan with 2 tablespoons of the butter and set aside.
    3. Combine the apples, 2 tablespoons of the brown sugar and the cinnamon in a medium bowl and toss to coat. Set aside. Unwrap the caramels and cut 18 of them into quarters. Set aside. Lightly flour your counter top.
    4. Flatten each dough ball into a circle about 3 inches across. You can use a rolling pin or you can pull the dough around the edges like you are making a mini pizza. Add 1 tablespoon of the apple mixture and 6 of the cut caramel pieces.
    5. Carefully pull each side over the center to create a “package,” and then roll the dough into a ball. Be careful to make sure you cannot see through the dough. If you have any tears or can’t seal the dough, tap your fingertips in flour, pinch any tears and roll again.
    6. Place the dough ball in the prepared dish, seam side down. Repeat until all of the apple pie bombs are in the dish. Brush the apple pie bombs with the remaining 2 tablespoons of melted butter and sprinkle with the remaining 4 tablespoons of brown sugar. Bake the bombs for 30 to 35 minutes, until the tops are golden brown and they are no longer doughy.
    7. Meanwhile, place the remaining 12 caramels and the heavy cream in a microwave safe bowl and microwave until melted, 30 seconds at a time, stirring after each interval. Once you have a smooth mixture, set aside to cool.
    8. Remove the apple pie bombs from the oven and drizzle with the caramel sauce.
    9. Serve and enjoy!

    8. I don't understand what is meant by " frozen white dinner rolls, (uncooked)"? Is this a can/roll of refrigerated biscuits?

      1. They're in the freezer section at the grocery store with other breads. Not biscuits.

    10. Hi, I'm from South Africa and I don't think we get these "caramels" which you mention. Can you explain what they are or is there anything I can use instead of caramels? Thanks

      1. If you do not have any caramel candies, you could use make a simple caramel syrup and chill it until thick. Then scoop about a teaspoon in each popper. Enjoy and let us know how it goes.

    11. We don't have frozen dinner rolls here. Any thoughts on a substitution?

      1. Absolutely. You can mix up dough and portion it out to use. Check out our Jalapeno Popper for a great dough recipe (prepare dough as instructed and then follow caramel apple pie bomb recipe). http://www.theslowroasteditalian.com/2014/01/jalapeno-popper-cheesy-pretzel-bombs-recipe.html

    12. What do you mean by "divided" caramels?

      ReplyDelete
      Replies
      1. It means the total quantity of the ingredient (in this case, caramels) is divided. The caramels have multiple additions in the recipe. So, you add 1/2 at part 1 and half at part 3 (example only).,

    13. How could you make or adapt these for a diabetic?

      1. I am not familiar with diabetic cooking. You could substitute the filling ingredients with diabetic friendly ingredients. Enjoy and let us know how it goes.

      1. How about an 8x8 brownie pan!

    15. To make it easier to remove the cellophane from the caramels, first put them in the freezer and they will peel right off.

    16. OMG these are so good. I have made them several times now. I have discovered that Kraft makes Caramel Bits found near the Chocolate Chips at the grocery store (Meijer stores for sure carry them). 8 = 1 Caramel Square. So much easier and the work great.

    17. I think you could make this recipe where you put brown sugar melted butter and nuts on the bottom of your 9 x9 pan. set the pies on top and then bake fill done. Then invert when they're done cooking and then all that good creamy caramel topping Pours Down Over the Top of the pie rolls. I make pecans cinnamon rolls this way and they are so Breaking GOOD!!!

    18. Could you use a metal 9×13 pan? Baking time difference?

    19. Could I use apple pie filling??

    20. These look sooo tummy 😘 but we don't have frozen dinner rolls in Norway, do you think I can use puff pastry?

      ReplyDelete
    21. Looks like you don't let the rolls rise before baking. Is that correct? Will definitely be trying these.
