First off, I just wanted to let you all know that I am posting over with Kiki today, so click HERE and check it out!
Here is a ridiculously decadent dessert that tastes like an ooey gooey caramel apple. And what says Halloween more than caramel apples?! Is this calorie friendly....not at all. But hey, sometimes splurging is SOOO worth it! One of the things I love about trifles is that they look really impressive for any occasion, but are really easy to put together.
Caramel Apple Trifle
1 baked cake (apple, white, pound, or even angel food cake would be great!)
1 can apple pie filling
1 jar caramel sauce
Apple Cider donuts (approx 4-6 depending on size) (or just use more cake...I think I will next time. It was a little too sweet with the glazed donuts)
1 large box vanilla pudding, prepared
Coarsely chopped oatmeal cookies (Store-bought is fine)
whipped topping (Cool Whip)
In a trifle pan, layer all your ingredients starting with the donuts, pudding, cookies, caramel, cake, apple pie filling, pudding, cookies…etc.
Continue layering until the trifle dish is full finishing with whipped topping and a drizzle of caramel. I recommend refrigerating for 2-3 hours in advance)
