  • 1 spice cake mix
  • 1/3 cup butter, melted
  • 1/3 cup apple cider
  • 1 cup chopped walnuts
  • 2 cups diced apples
  • 1 cup caramel apple dip (sold in the produce section by the apples)
  • 1/2 cup powdered sugar
  • 2 teaspoons milk
  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Spray a 9×13 pan with non stick spray.
  2. Combine the cake mix, butter, and apple cider until it forms a soft dough. Press half the dough into the bottom of the prepared pan. You will need to spray your hands with spray too.
  3. Spread the caramel dip over the dough in the pan. Sprinkle with the apples and walnuts.
  4. Drop the rest of the dough over the top of the mixture in the pan. Try to drop small pieces evenly everywhere. Bake for 25-30 minutes. Let cool on a wire rack for at least one hour.
