Pull Apart Caramel Apple Pie Bombs

These easy pull apart Caramel Apple Pie Bombs are stuffed with brown sugar, cinnamon, apples and caramel candies.

Pull Apart Apple Pie Bombs Hi everyone! This is Tina again from Mommy's Kitchen. Today I'm sharing a delicious apple treat perfect for fall. Today is another hot and humid 100 degree day here in North Texas! Even though the weather is hot and steamy all I can do is think of Fall instead of summer.

This is typical for me at the end of August, especially when all the fall decor starts rolling out in the stores. August has definitely been unseasonably cooler this year with temps in the high 80's and low 90's, so I won't complain too much. We've also received several inches of rain which has been a blessing to our garden.   

Pull Apart Apple Pie Bombs When the seasons start to change, I find myself wanting to get into the kitchen and start baking all my favorite fall foods. I know it's still a bit early for fall, but I couldn't help myself and baked up my first fall recipe, Pull Apart Caramel Apple Pie Bombs! These delicious little stuffed apple balls remind me of a mini version of caramel apple pie. 

Simply wrap dinner roll dough around fresh seasoned apples, caramel candy, roll in cinnamon-sugar and bake!  Once baked these delicious rolls are filled with an ooey-gooey explosion of melted caramel and apples.I pinned this recipe last year and I've been wanting to make them, so Today I was bitten by the baking bug and that's what I made! 

Pull Apart Apple Pie Bombs I did adapt the original recipe to make my own version. I used fresh seasoned apples in place of store bought pie filling and I used my favorite Rhodes frozen dinner rolls instead of crescent roll dough. Rhodes Frozen Dough have all the flavor and texture of homemade dough, but without all the fuss of making it from scratch.

I knew their dinner rolls would be perfect for this recipe and perfect they were because everyone loved this sweet little treat If you're looking for a quick and easy fall dessert this is ti!!! these tasty little caramel apple bites can be enjoyed alone or topped with vanilla ice cream and caramel sauce. Let's get started on the step-by-step instructions. 

Thawed Rhodes RollsPlace 12 dinner rolls on a large baking sheet that has been sprayed with non-stick spray and thaw at room temperature until the rolls are soft, but still cold (about 1 hour). Preheat oven to 350 degree. Spray a 9 inch pie plate or similar with non-stick spray.
