Cheesecake Stuffed Baked Apples

A new way to eat baked apples – Cheesecake Stuffed Apples filled with walnuts and caramel sauce. Small batch recipe makes 4 apples as a dessert for two people.
Although to be honest, I’ve been ready for fall since Labor Day when Dad and I usually pick a peck of apples like we do every year.

I forgot to weigh the bag, but we like to say “this weighs more than the cat!” It usually doesn’t but it’s still fun to play.

The first thing I made when we got home was my Homemade Apple Turnovers.

Since I have so many apple recipes on my blog including Mini Apple Pies and Homemade Apple Pie Filling, sometimes it’s tough coming up with new ideas.

Then I started thinking about my Cheesecake Stuffed Peaches.

That recipe is so popular for summer, how can I recreate it for fall?

Baked apples are pretty common, usually stuffed with butter, cinnamon, and nuts. Why not take it one step further with Cheesecake Stuffed Apples?

The apples are cored then stuffed with a caramel cheesecake filling and walnuts.

It’s the ideal apple recipe to get a full serving size of fruit while also indulging in dessert.

What If I Don’t Want To Use Melting Chocolate

So I used a chocolate almond bark for my chocolate. I did that because you want the outside of your apples to harden up nicely. If you want to use a classic chocolate chip you are welcome to.

I do recommend that you mix in 1 tablespoon of shortening. Then heat the chocolate chips up in the microwave or with a double boiler.

The shortening will help to give you a harder coating that you want for these apples!
