Guys I am so excited!! I walked outside the other morning and it was chilly!! Fall is definitely in the air! I immediately went back into the house grabbed a pumpkin spice coffee out of my Fall mug and threw a flannel scarf around my neck and went back outside into that crisp breeze.
I love, love. love Fall and as soon as there is just the slightest nip in the air I start making Fall desserts flavored with pumpkin and apple, I pull out the slow cooker and make soups and stews, I wait all year for Fall!
Now everyone knows pumpkin spice reigns supreme in the fall, but I got to be honest with you sometimes I love apple more! I love apple cider, caramel apples and apple spice everything! Now don’t get me wrong I love pumpkin (I even have a pumpkin pie for my birthday every year!) but I love apple spice just as much!
This year I came up with this delicious No Bake Caramel Apple Lush. Everyone loves a good lush recipe! It is basically a crust, sweetened cream cheese layer, pudding layer and then a whipped topping layer. The flavors and add-ins are up to you, the sky is the limit with the kinds of lushes you can make.
This Caramel Apple version is my favorite!! Since there isn’t caramel pudding available I use butterscotch and it is amazing in this dish.
The apple pie filling makes this dessert come together in minutes and of course lots of caramel drizzled over the top really takes this to the next level!
This dessert is Fall in a pan and is so easy to make and suer easy to take and share (if you want to, it’s almost too good to share!)
So go apple picking or pumpkin picking at that little farm a ways out and then go home and make this No Bake Caramel Apple Lush today! I promise it will be your new favorite dessert and get you feeling Fall!
Can I substitute the graham crackers?
You sure can!! Feel free to use vanilla wafers, gingersnaps, Golden Oreos or even Apple Pie Oreos if you can find them!
Can I use homemade apple pie filling?
Of course!! As long as it is cool or room temperature just substitute home made.
