This Chocolate Caramel Apple Bark is the ultimate sweet and salty snack to make for fall! It’s vegan, gluten-free and with a homemade caramel sauce.

  • Prep Time: 20 mins
  • Cook Time: 60 mins
  • Total Time: 80 mins

Yield: Serves 6-8 1x



Homemade caramel sauce:

  • 1/3 cup honey
  • 1/3 cup maple syrup
  • 1/4 cup coconut oil
  • 2 tablespoons water

Caramel Apple Bark:


  1. First make the caramel by adding ingredients to pot and bring to simmer over medium heat
  2. Continue to simmer stirring frequently
  3. As the mixture cooks, you’ll notice that it first darkens in color and soon after, the caramel will start to lighten in color a bit, and that’s when your sauce is just about done (usually 15-20 minutes)
  4. Remove caramel from heat and begin making the bark
  5. Melt chocolate in microwave or stovetop
  6. Line a cookie sheet with parchment paper and use a spatula to spread the melted chocolate into the shape of a rectangle on baking sheet
  7. Sprinkle the crushed pretzels evenly on top of the chocolate followed by apple
  8. Drizzle caramel on top of the apples
  9. Refrigerate for at least an hour before cutting into pieces
  10. Refrigerate until ready to serve! I like to keep in the freezer so the apple pieces don’t get soggy


*Store in fridge for up to 5 days or freezer for 2 months
