Thanks to our sponsors this season, and to the area businesses who donated a prize!! And now, here is the recipe from Kris. I have to say, this was a hit in our house yesterday (I made it and enjoyed it while watching the Badgers beat Oregon last night in the NCAA tournament!), and personally, I am a huge fan of recipes that use super smart shortcuts to save some time, yet still make the recipe taste fantastic! That is what this recipe does, as you use box cake mix in the topping. Brilliant!

SLOW COOKER CARAMEL APPLE CRISP

6 golden delicious apples
2 boxes yellow cake mix
1/4 cup sugar
3 Tablespoons cinnamon
1 stick butter (melted)
1/4 cup caramel sauce
Ice Cream {optional}
Caramel sauce for the finale {optional}
What to do …
1. Slice and peel apples
2. In a large bowl, combine the yellow cake mixes, sugar, and cinnamon
3. Add in the melted butter and stir to combine and crumbly
4. Put apples into slow cooker.
5. Set slow cooker on high.
6. Pour the caramel sauce over the apples.
7. Pour dry ingredients over the apples and caramel. Spread it out with a spoon so that the entire surface is covered.
8. Cover with a lid and cook on high for 2 hours. Set the slow cooker to low and remove the lid. Let sit for 30 minutes without the lid so the top of the crisp can harden.
9. Serve with Ice Cream and additional caramel drizzle.
Again, a huge thank you to all of you wonderful listeners who have made Julie’s Crock of the Week so much fun over the last 4.5 years! I love chatting about it with you all. And remember, you can use your crock pot all year ’round! Don’t put it away for the summer!
