Reviews for Caramel Apple Trifle
"I followed the recipe but made my own apple pie spice and diced the apple instead of sliced as in the photo. It was wonderful! All the ladies at the meeting loved it, took leftovers to their husbands, and they loved it, too. Great recipe!"
"The flavor of this recipe is so good! I've made it twice and had great reviews both times. A good way to save $$ is to make up your own apple pie spice, there are plenty of recipes online. This is really easy to make also and I love a dessert you can make up ahead of time. The only thing I changed is that I make one and a half times the filling because it seems just a bit too little."
"Very good and easy to make."
"The recipe was delicious, everyone LOVED IT!! However, I had to double everything to fill my trifle bowl. I would make again for Thanksgiving!!!"
"Do the apples turn brown"
