I highly recommend nuking these in the microwave before eating them!

Some other options for you:

If you really like caramel, you could melt some extra caramels and mix them into the batter.
If you’re a chocolate fan you could throw some chocolate chips into the mix or add them on top.

I used almond butter but peanut butter would work well too.

You could also top them with peanuts instead of pecans.

Hubby suggests adding a layer of apple slices to the bottom to ensure you get apples in every bite! Or even a layer of apple and caramel to the middle. Isn’t he a genius?

And finally, I didn’t have any in the freezer but I bet these would be amazing topped with some vanilla ice cream!
