Slow Cooker Caramel Apple Crisp

I’ve always been in love with caramel apples. They were a special treat from the fair, we made them at home and I loved to dip apple slices into caramel sauce.  Slow Cooker Caramel Apple Crisp is one of those caramel apple treats that we love!

The crisp of the apples with the sweetness of the caramel is just so, so good. While I loved caramel apples as a child, it was later in life when I discovered my love of apple crisps. Since I love them both, why not combine those two things together!?

Slow Cooker Caramel Apple Crisp

I’ve been using my slow cooker a lot, I finally got a new one and I think that’s why I’ve been trying to make everything in it lately. This is a take on my regular “oven” apple crisp but I’ve added sweet caramel to it and cooked it all in the slow cooker so that dessert can cook but I can still have the oven for dinner.

This slow cooker Caramel Apple Crisp takes about 2 hours to cook. The longest part of the prep time is chopping the apples into wedges and peeling the skins from them.

Chocolate Dipped Banana Pudding Pops

Welcome to new contributing writer, Angie from Big Bear’s Wife!  I got to meet Angie in person at the Food Blog Forum conference in Disney World, where we chatted over Monsters Inc. cupcakes.  I’m excited to have Angie sharing recipes with us here.  And these Chocolate Dipped Banana Pudding Pops look right up my alley!

These Chocolate Dipped Banana Pudding Pops have become one of my recent “go-to” snacks and they’re so easy to make. I’ve always been a fan of popsicles.  I remember having the molds as a kid and making popsicles with anything I could get my hands on.

Kool-aid pops, fruit juice pops and pudding pops where stuffed into every section of our freezer. Banana pops were one of my favorite flavors growing up! Do you remember those? The banana pops with the two sticks that broke apart in the middle. I think they were made like that so that you could share, but I’m not sure if I ever wanted to share my banana pops. They where the “King” of all popsicles in my eyes.

I love banana pudding and the combination of chocolate and banana is just the perfect match, so it was only a matter of time before I combined them together into this frozen treat! These come together in a flash with the longest part of the whole process being the wait for them to come out of the freezer. Plus, you only need 4 ingredients to make these beauties happen: Banana Pudding Mix, Milk, Chocolate Magic Shell and Crushed Vanilla Wafers.

The banana pudding freezes but still remains pretty creamy, the chocolate shell hardens in seconds and the crushed vanilla wafers add the perfect “banana pudding touch”! Where I’m from, banana pudding isn’t banana pudding without vanilla wafers!
