Caramel Apple Trifles
I’m totally loving these cute little trifles. With so many tasty layers, what’s not to love? Here’s what’s in there:
- Cinnamon apples
- Caramel sauce
- Cinnamon granola
- Cinnamon whipped cream
Clearly there’s loads of cinnamon, apples and caramel sauce. So many of my favorite fall things! And unlike so many trifles that use cake or brownies or something similar, these use granola. It not only adds some crunch, but also lightens the trifles up just a bit. I love the texture and flavor of it with the apples and caramel, but of course you could use something like pound cake too.
How to Make Caramel Apple Trifles
The first thing you’ll want to do is make the caramel sauce so that it has some time to cool. You could even make it several days ahead if you want. I use my Easy Salted Caramel Sauce and I totally recommend it, but you could certainly use a store bought sauce if you want to make things even easier.
Once your sauce is made, you can make the cinnamon apples. Combine the apples, lemon juice, nutmeg, cinnamon and brown sugar in a pan and cook until the apples are tender. Easy peasy!
Let the apples cool a bit, then make the cinnamon whipped cream and it’s time to layer everything together.
Start with the whipped cream, then the granola, caramel sauce and apples. Top the trifles with a little more caramel sauce.
These trifles are great for making a little bit ahead. I like the crunch of the granola, but I also like it soften just a bit. So for me, these are great a few hours after making them. But you could certainly eat them immediately or even make them a day ahead. After that, the granola does soften up a good bit. Totally still yummy, but you lose that crunch.
These Caramel Apple Trifles are so delicious and great for fall! The recipe makes just 4 trifles, so it’s great for just making for the family as a special treat, or for doubling up for a group. Either way – a great way to use up some apples and try a treat that’s full of flavor and texture. I hope you enjoy them!
