Apple Crisp with Caramel Drops

My husband and I loved this. It was so yummy. Hope you enjoy it! Oh, and I apologize in advance for the crummy pictures...I was in a hurry. Will try for better ones next time! :)


Apple Crisp:
6 Medium sized granny smith apples (peeled and sliced)
1 1/4 Cup Brown Sugar
3/4 Cup Flour
3/4 Cup Quick Oats
1/2 Cup Butter
1 teaspoon Nutmeg
1 1/4 teaspoon Cinnamon

Caramel Drops:
1 Cup White granulated sugar
1/4 Cup Butter
Dash of Cinnamon
Dash of Nutmeg


Apple Crisp:

- Butter/Grease sides of a 9x11 Baking dish, and preheat oven to 375.
- Put apple slices into the baking dishes. Set aside.

- In a medium bowl mix the remaining ingredients. Mix will have a crumbly texture.
- Next, sprinkle mix onto the apples. (I also like to add an extra handful of oats on the top once I've sprinkled my mix).
- Then, just bake for 30 minutes!
Caramel Drops:

- While the Apple Crisp is baking, pour sugar into a medium size saucepan. Before you turn on the heat, shake pan so sugar is evenly distributed.

- Cook over medium heat and wait.......and wait.........and wait some more! Once, you see the edges start to melt, then shake the pan again, so it doesn't start to burn. As the sugar starts to melt more, you can stir it around.
- The sugar should obtain an amber looking color. Right after the sugar starts to smoke, remove it from heat. Now, add the butter, but very carefully, as the mixture will sputter! I suggest wearing an oven mit so you don't get burned. Next, add a dash of cinnamon and nutmeg.

- Now, spoon the mixture onto a silicone baking mat while it's still warm. Don't worry about it looking pretty, the excess strands will just snap off.
- Next just place them in the fridge to cool and you're done! Serve with the apple crisp...or eat them by themselves for a sweetly spiced candy treat :)

Enjoy......try the Apple Crisp and Caramel Drops with some icecream too!
