Caramel Apple Oreos, because who needs real fruit anyway?
Nabisco has really been branching out with its cookie flavors (Birthday Cake, anyone?), and its new Caramel Apple Oreos are no exception. The cookies, featuring half-apple, half-caramel filling and a vanilla cookie, will be sold exclusively at Target.
If you don't feel like dealing with the battle for a shopping cart and a long wait in line just to get your hands on some cookies, never fear. There are plenty of buttery, sticky, sweet and tart caramel apple-inspired treats to go around.

Once the cool weather starts rolling in (or any time of year, let's be honest), is there anything worse than having to get out of bed and put on pants so you can leave the house? Instead of running to Starbucks to get your favorite hot fall beverage (how 'bout them apples, pumpkin spice latte?), just throw some ingredients into a pot at home. You'll have a steamy, dreamy mug of caramel apple cider before you can say, "I didn't even have to put pants on."

Let's be honest: No one is in this for the apples. Caramel apple fondue puts the focus on rich, buttery caramel, kept at the perfect dunking temperature thanks to a mini slow cooker. Dip in some apple slices, apple balls, apple cider doughnuts, Caramel Apple Oreos or just a big freakin' spoon, and thank yourself for making this sweetest of treats.
