Caramel Apple Crisp Bites

I saw theses on Facebook, and being the apple crisp lover that I am, I just had to make them. They are sweet and delicious.  My edits, I made them in regular muffin tins (instead of the mini cups) and I just had to add WHIPPING CREAM!

They are so easy, even Jack was able to help make and decorate them and had tons of fun doing it!

Recipe from Princess Pinky Girl

BASE

2 cup graham cracker crumbs (I used store bought in a can. I find these to work the best)
12 tablespoons butter, melted
1/2 cup powdered sugar (can substitute with brown sugar)

FILLING

4 cups peeled, cored and chopped apples (we used golden delicious)
1/3 cup sugar
1/4 cup brown sugar
2 1/4 tablespoons flour
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon nutmeg

INSTRUCTIONS

Preheat oven to 350 degrees
Melt butter
In a medium size bowl mix graham cracker crumbs, powdered sugar and butter with a spoon
Evenly distribute mixture to the 24 mini muffin cups or 12 muffin cups (non-stick pan). Press along the bottom and sides to make a “cup”
Bake for 5 minutes and let cool completely
Chop the apples into little pieces. Don’t puree, just finely chop
Mix apples, sugar, brown sugar, flour, cinnamon and nutmeg in a bowl
Bake in a baking dish for 15 minutes on 375 degrees, until apples are slightly softened
Scoop a teaspoon or so of the apple mix and place on top of the graham cracker crust cups (while still in the muffin pan)
Sprinkle any extra graham cracker on top of the apples.
Bake for 5 minutes at 350
Let cool completely
Use a knife to loosen from pan and they should pop right out

TOPPING

1 cup whipping cream
1 tsp sugar
1/2 tsp vanilla
Whip with mixer until thick. Place on top of apple mixture.
Drizzle with caramel topping (store bought)
