These Caramel Bacon Apples look so good I don't think I can wait until Fall to try them. Let's face it, bacon is always in season. They're made with simple ingredients that you are sure to have on hand so why not give yourself a Spring break with a delicious Fall treat. Sounds like a plan to me.

I guess caramel apple season is kind of over, but i would still make this sometime. Looks interesting!
