Who could resist this recipe for Caramel Pecan Apple Bars? There is always something special about the flavor of caramel against pecans and apples, and that combination of tastes goes back a very long way. Whether it is the sultry flavor of the caramel, or the sweet crunch of the pecans, or the tart and tangy taste of apples, who knows why this combination is so appealing? But any way you try it, this combination always tastes great, and every one loves it. And so will your family when you make this dessert for them tonight.

This recipe begins with a commercial box mix. These box mixes can be very handy to have around, and they are a great place to begin when you want to make a terrific dessert. Apples are chopped with the skins on. That means the fiber in the apples is bumped up, along with the already great nutrition that this fruit has to offer. The pecans are also chopped and sprinkled on to the spice cake mix. Pecans have a light crunch and sweet taste that really works in a spice cake.

This cake is a lovely and sweet combination. Using a box mix to make it means that anyone can likely put it together with great success. The flavor works well, too. The apples have a slightly sharp flavor that picks up on the sweeter and smoother flavors of pecans and caramel. This cake might be most tasty served warm, with a side of ice cream or even whipped cream. Make the whipped cream from scratch for the best flavor possible. Choose the side your family enjoys most—or why not make up both? That will make dessert tonight a very special offering.
