I love grilling.  Well, that’s not exactly true.  I don’t do any grilling- that’s my husband’s area- which is why I love it!

If I have a meal that needs grilling, I get the evening off!  So I love grilling!

I’ve recently been wanting to try grilling a dessert, so I came up with this Grilled Caramel Apple Crunch, and it was everything I wanted it to be.

If you’re not so much of a griller, or you don’t have a grill, this Grilled Caramel Apple Crunch can be made over low coals on a campfire, or you can bake it in your oven at about 350º.

You can use granola from the store, or you can use this recipe for our favorite Versatile Granola.

Best of all, the foil packets of Grilled Caramel Apple Crunch can be made ahead of time (if you’re camping or having a lot of people over).  Just put them in the fridge or cooler until you’re ready to cook them.  And they don’t take very long at all!

Yield: 1

Grilled Caramel Apple Crunch

Grilled Caramel Apple Crunch
Prep Time 5 minutes
Cook Time 10 minutes
Total Time 15 minutes


  • 1 cup chopped apple, (approximately 1 small apple)
  • sprinkle of cinnamon,, optional
  • 2 Tbsp caramel ice cream topping
  • 1/4 cup granola


  1. Preheat grill to medium heat (approximately 350º).
  2. Tear off 2 pieces of aluminum foil, approximately 8 inches square each.
  3. Put chopped apples in the center of one piece of foil.
  4. Sprinkle with cinnamon (if desired).
  5. Drizzle caramel over the apples.
  6. Sprinkle with granola.
  7. Place the other foil square over the top, and roll the foil packets together. Start with the corners, and then roll up the edges, so it seals well.
  8. Place in the grill, over coals, or in the oven for 10-15 minutes, until apples are soft.
  9. Be careful when opening the foil packet, and be sure to open the side farthest away from you first, so the steam doesn't burn you.
  10. Serve with whipped cream or ice cream.


These directions are for 1 foil packet. Double, triple, etc for the number needed.
