Caramel and can you go wrong?

So I finally made the Caramel Apple bars that I found on Betty Crocker. These were sooo good! They taste a little like apple crisp and a little like a caramel apple. I made them at my parents' house and my whole family loved them. They are also really good heated up the next day.
