Caramel Apple Brickle & The Butterfly Exhibit
A long time ago, I went to our friend’s holiday potluck and someone brought this great, kid-friendly dessert of fresh apple slices with a creamy, crunchy, sweet caramel dip. It’s been over two years since that potluck but I never forgot this dessert.
I’ve made this dessert twice in the past year and it’s a great dish for when you don’t have a lot of time. It’s very simple and very quick to prepare. Perhaps more important, is that it’s a hit with both kids and grown-ups. If you’re ever short on time and need a super quick dessert or sweet treat for an impromptu kid-friendly get-together, definitely consider this caramel brickle!
I’m going to keep this post extremely short as I am (still) tired from our weekend (lots of running around and we also took Bebe E to the West Los Angeles Obon – – – a post for the future) and this week is a little crazy (I will explain later)! Before we get to the recipe, below is a few shots from a trip we took a few weeks ago to the Natural History Museum in Los Angeles to experience the butterfly exhibit.
Making caramel apple brickle is very easy and quick.

- Spread the cream cheese or marshmallow fluff onto a plater.
