How to Make Caramel Apple Cake Mix Bars

This dessert is super easy to make with only a few simple ingredients. In a large bowl, combine a box of cake mix, an egg, and melted butter. Press dough into the bottom of a 9×13-inch baking dish. Chop apples and toss with cinnamon. Sprinkle chopped apples, toffee bits, and caramel bits on top of the crust. Pour a can of sweetened condensed milk evenly over the apples. Bake in a preheated oven. Remove from the oven and cool completely on a wire rack. Sprinkle with powdered sugar, if desired.

Helpful Tips & Frequently Asked Questions

  • You can use any flavor of cake mix. I think spice cake mix would be delicious. 
  • For best results, place the cooled bars in the refrigerator for a few hours before serving.
  • I use caramel bits. You can substitute chopped caramel candies.
  • Feel free to add some chopped nuts to the bars. Pecans, walnuts, and peanuts are all delicious.
    • Butterscotch chips, peanut butter chips, or semi-sweet chocolate chips are also a great addition.
  • Line the baking pan with parchment paper or aluminum foil to easily remove the bars from the pan.
  • Store leftovers in an airtight container in the refrigerator.
    • Remove bars from the refrigerator to come to room temperature before serving.
