Caramel Apple Pie Bites

Many, many years ago I worked for a caterer who made these caramel apple pie things that were out of this world. Sadly they were made with condensed milk. However, I have found coconut condensed milk and thought I would give these a try. 

There are a few steps for these delectable little bites but you will be greatly rewarded when they are finished and the best part besides no animals being harmed is there is no cooking or baking involved. 

Let's get started. Here is what you will need:
For the crust:
8 pitted dates
1/2 cup slivered or raw almonds
1 tsp water
1 cup of apple diced small

Process the dates in a processor until they look like a little doughy date ball. Add the pecans and process until well combined. Add the water and process for just a few seconds. 

Line a 12 cup mini muffin pan with paper liners. Distribute the crust evenly into the paper liners. Press with your fingers or if you have a glass that fits, you can use that. Just dip the bottom in some water before pressing. 

Fill with the diced apples and set aside. 

Now for the caramel sauce. You will need:
12 dates
1/4 cup of sweetened condensed coconut milk

Put both the dates and milk in a processor and process until smooth and creamy. You might need to add some plant milk to help thin out the caramel. 

When the caramel is complete, drizzle onto the apples. Top with some pecans that are optional. Enjoy
