Caramel Apple Parfait

We are in the last few days of August and with the new month also comes one of our favorite seasons: apple season. As part of the #CreativeBuzz challenge this month, I used my favorite granny smith apples to create an amazing caramel apple parfait.  Seriously, this thing is to die for so just get ready to make it now because I know you won’t be able to resist.

This caramel apple parfait looks divine. I can't wait to make it! #CreativeBuzz

One thing I love about making parfaits is how easy they are. Plus, you can make them ahead of time which makes them perfect for a dinner party or a group dessert. For this one, you could easily make it one big bowl like a trifle or separate them out like I did.

What You’ll Need:

1 1/2 cups milk
1 small package vanilla instant pudding
8 oz cool whip
4 Granny Smith apples, chopped
4 cups Milky Way Bites, chopped
Caramel sauce

Let’s Make It:

1) In a large bowl, whisk together milk and pudding. Stir for 2-3 minutes or it starts to thicken. Place in refrigerator of about 15 minutes. Fold in cool whip.

2) Place apple pieces in the bottom of 6 parfait glasses or mason jars. Top with about 1/2 cup of pudding mixture. Add a layer of milky way pieces and drizzle with caramel and more pudding. Repeat the apple and pudding layer. Top with caramel drizzle and 1-2 Milky Way pieces. Refrigerate until ready to eat. 

This parfait is one of my favorites because I love caramel apples. You could even use a salted caramel sauce to add a more complex flavor to the dessert. Either way, it is one that you will be making over and over this apple season.

Parfaits are one of my favorite desserts. This caramel apple one is perfect for fall! Caramel, apples and milky ways...this parfait has it all! #CreativeBuzz
