25 Sweet and Easy Caramel Desserts

Caramel is one of my favorite flavors and it pairs particularly well with so many seasonal treats. Caramel apples, for example, are hugely popular this time of year. There are also lots of other caramel flavored things that are wonderful in the fall and winter. Pumpkin bars with caramel, caramel stuffed cookies, even just caramel on top of ice cream! Caramel also works well as a condiment. If not everyone wants some you can always serve it in a bowl on the side of dessert. That way people can drizzle it over their cheesecake as desired. Here are some of my favorite silky and easy caramel desserts!
