{Recipe} Caramel Apple Trifle

This is what my younger daughter wanted as her birthday 'cake' last year for the family party.  It was pre-blogging and pre-trifle bowl days but it's worth sharing.

Caramel Apple Trifle
The recipe is from Taste of Home Holiday Magazine.
(serves 14)
3 TBS butter
4 cups chopped peeled tart apples (about 5 medium)
1 cup chopped walnuts
1/2 cup packed brown sugar
1 tsp. apple pie spice, divided
1 pkg (8 oz) cream cheese
1 jar (12 oz) caramel ice cream topping, divided
1 carton (12 oz) whipped topping(or make homemade), divided
2 loaves (10 3/4 oz each) frozen pound cake, thawed and cut into 1 inch cubes

In a large skillet, melt butter over medium heat. Stir in the apples, walnuts, brown sugar and 1/2 tsp of apple pie spice.   Cook and stir for 8-10 minutes or until apples are tender.
In a large bowl, beat cream cheese until smooth. Beat in 1/2 cup caramel topping and remaining apple pie spice.  Fold in 2 cups of whipped topping.
In a a 3 1/2 quart trifle bowl or glass serving bowl, layer a third of the cake cubes, cream cheese mixture and apple mixture.  Repeat layers twice. Garnish with the remaining whipped topping and drizzle with caramel topping.  Sprinkle with additional apple pie spice if desired.  Cover and refrigerate for at least an hour before serving.

Really good and really easy!!

Now what to do this year?

What a delicious and different looking apple dessert.

I've never even seen anything like this before but I suspect it would be wonderful to add to any family gathering.
