The ultimate Fall treat! Gooey, tender caramel apples, creamy caramel no-bake cheesecake and Bear Naked’s Sea Salt Caramel Apple Granola!
Trifles are so fun, aren’t they? Not only are they fun, but they are just so pretty. There are just so many possibilities with the layers that you can go as crazy or as simple as you’d like! These caramel apple no-bake cheesecake trifles are definitely my favorite so far. You can make mini trifles or these mason jar trifles which are a great single-serving size – not too, too big and not too small, perfect for a small dinner party!
All of the layers in this trifle are amazing. The gooey homemade apple pie filling mixed with homemade caramel, the no-bake caramel cheesecake and then you have my favorite layer, Bear Naked’s Sea Salt Caramel Apple Granola. Have you tried this stuff yet? It’s delish! Such perfect flavors for the fall time with tangy dried apple, crunchy caramel sweetness and a dash of sea salt! It’s awesome in these trifles because it goes with the whole caramel apple theme so well, but it’s also really great just with some greek yogurt for a perfect everyday breakfast or a snack! Just a yummy alternative from the vanilla almond granola I usually mix into my yogurt in the morning!
Now, about the glorious layers. You’ll make some homemade caramel sauce, which I taught you all about in this post with some step-by-step photos so I won’t go too in-depth in this post since you guys can just reference it there. I prefer my homemade caramel sauce over store-bought because in my opinion there is just no comparison! But you can feel free to substitute if you’d like.
After you make the caramel sauce, you’ll need to allow it to come to room temperature because it gets nice and thick and will keep the cheesecake nice and thick too. There will be leftover caramel sauce that you’ll mix with your homemade apple pie filling which is sooo-ooo-oooo good.
Then all you have to do is layer it all up in your cups of choice with some Bear Naked Sea Salt Caramel Apple Granola! I bought mine at BJ’s Wholesale because you get so much more bang for your buck there, you get three bags of granola in one box. I found mine near all of the breakfast cereals and other granolas. Oh, oh! I almost forgot. Make sure you grab your coupon at the front of the store so you can receive $2 off which can also be combined with the Ibotta app coupon for $4 off total!
