But these things also have caramel. Salted caramel. Sticky, warm, sweet caramel. Talk about combining four amazing things in one single bite.

Further, these bars can be eaten warm alongside a scoop of icecream (or custard… whatever takes your fancy), or cold. I can’t decide which way I like these bars best. I eat a piece warm and absolutely love it. But then I eat it cold and I also love it that way. So I eat another warm piece in the hopes my mind will be made up. But no, I still can’t decide.

As expected, this is a multiple-step recipe but don’t let that turn you off from baking these bars. They’re seriously amazing, people. The crumbly, buttery base; the tart, crunchy apples; the crunchy topping; the sticky caramel. Need I say more? Go make them now.
