Peanut Butter Bar Apple Crisp by Ashley at Plate and Pen

FINE. FINE. You guys. I did it. I baked my first “cooked apple thing.”


Anyone who knows me (if not, sup?), knows I cannot stand baked apples. Most baked fruit really. And Jeremy Renner. I’ve never liked baked apples, and I can’t even tell you when it started. The texture makes me gag. If it has any semblance of density to it, I’m like *gag noise*. I’m a blob in a chair. I have no bones, I can’t move. It’s just gross. Dramatic? Probably.


Now that I am starting to bake more sweets, and I do this whole “foodie thing,” I needed to sack up and bake some apples. Otherwise I’d just be that chick who keeps posting pumpkins and inserting herself in orchards. *gestures to profile picture*


My thought process behind this one was, how can I make this without being repulsed? The answer is, use my favorite childhood candy, a really good bag of apple crisp mix from an orchard of choice, and @sprinklepop.shop sprinkles. Oh and I guess you need apples.


Spoiler alert! This was so bomb. For me to eat this, I had to slice the apples oh-so-thin, and crumble up some Peanut Butter Bars (if you know, you know 90’s kids) into the crisp. There’s butter involved. Oh and vanilla bean ice cream. S’delish.


So now I can’t complain about baked apples any more. Will I though? Yes. Will I continue to Gladiator walk through orchard fields almost every weekend in the Fall? Also, yes! Is there a pumpkin patch I won’t visit or golden retriever snoot to boop? You better believe I’ll be there, probably dressed in plaid.


Preheat oven to 375°F. Crush with rolling pin, 10-15 peanut butter bar candies and combine into apple crisp mix. You can find the mix on Amazon under "Concord Foods Apple Crisp Mix."
Peel and thinly slice 5 green tart apples.
Blend together 1 1/4 C of crisp mix and 4 TBSP of melted butter.
Spread apples into 9" cast iron skillet that have been mixed with 3 TBSP of sugar.
Pour crisp mixture with butter over apples, and bake for 30 minutes.
Remove from oven, and add Halloween Sprinkle Pop Mixture as desired.
Also dollop on vanilla bean ice cream.
I added more peanut butter bars to the top of my crisp.
