Sometimes lighter dessert options are sadly light on flavor too. Not so with these Mini Caramel Apple Tarts! Don’t let their size fool you. These bite-sized treats pack large amounts of deliciously sweet flavors. The apples provide just the right amount of tartness and a satisfying crunch.

These tarts are a hostess’s dream. They require no baking and can be made ahead of your event or dinner party. Fill the crusts up with caramel and chill in the refrigerator until you are ready to serve. Then, simply top with apple slices right before serving.

Produce Moms Tip: Tossing the apple slices in a little bit of lemon juice will prevent them from browning.

These little cuties also happen to be gluten-free so they are a wise choice if you have any guests who are following a gluten-free diet.

Instructions
  1. Soak the dates in warm water until softened, about 30 minutes. Drain and put in a food processor with the walnuts, cinnamon and salt.
  2. Pulse until the mixture begins to come together, scraping down the bowl every once in a while.
  3. Divide the dough among 4 mini tart pans, pressing the mixture firmly into the pans to form a crust.
  4. Spread one tablespoon of the caramel in the bottom of each crust using a small spoon or spatula. Chill in the refrigerator until ready to eat.
  5. When ready to serve the tarts, cut the apples into thin slices and toss with the lemon juice in a large bowl.
  6. Arrange the apples on top of the caramel and serve.
