Caramel Apple Bubble

With chopped apples slightly cooked in a brown sugar sauce, the small pieces of roll are tossed in a cinnamon sugar mix.

I have to admit, I love fruit. But I think it's best when it's covered in a delicious sauce and paired with something creamy. And I especially love my fruit warm with some amazing vanilla ice cream. This dessert is delicious on it's own, but gets that hot/cold, and sweet/tart combos that taste oh so good with the addition of vanilla ice cream.

Named for the dough that has been cut into bite sized pieces, this Caramel Apple Bubble is sure to please the whole family.

With chopped apples slightly cooked in a brown sugar sauce, the small pieces of roll are tossed in a cinnamon sugar mix. Once the dough rises and you bake the dessert, you have tender apple pieces combined with a dough bite that is crisp on the outside and delicate on the inside. The combination is bettered with a caramel sauce and topping that adds a buttery sweetness to the dessert.

For this 4 person dessert you will need 8 Rhodes Bake N Serv Dinner Rolls. Thaw them out to begin.

Using a kitchen sheers, cut each roll into four pieces.

Set those pieces aside for a few minutes to make the apple bottom.

In a small cast iron pan- mine is about 7 inches. Combine brown sugar and butter with a tablespoon cinnamon. Cook on medium heat to melt butter. Chop 3 medium apples and add to hot pan, cooking another 3 minutes until butter and brown sugar have combined into a sauce. Remove from heat and allow to cool a few minutes.

Place the roll bites around the pan in rings, adding one to the center point of the apples.

Continue adding pieces around the pan until it is full and you have used all pieces. Allow dough to proof one hour.

Bake at 350 degrees about 15-18 minutes, until rolls are browned. Immediately drizzle caramel topping over top of rolls.

Serve while still warm.
