Elegant, delicious, and incredibly easy to make. These treats are packed with the chewy goodness you'd expect from caramel, but they offer the sweet comfort and familiar flavor of a homemade pumpkin pie. Enjoy them individually or melt and drizzle some over fresh-picked apples for an unforgettable caramel apple experience.
