Additional Information

Step 1

Preheat oven to 350°F. Spray one 13 x 9 x 2 in. sheet pan or two 8 in. or 9 in. round pans with vegetable pan spray.

Step 2

In large bowl, combine cake mix, pudding mix, eggs, water and oil; beat at medium speed with electric mixer 2 minutes. Pour into prepared pan.

Step 3

Bake 30-35 minutes for round pans; 35-40 minutes for sheet pan, or until toothpick inserted in center comes out clean. Cool in pan 10 minutes; remove from pan to cooling grid and cool completely. Divide cake in half; freeze one half for future use.

Step 4

In small bowl, combine icing with 1/4 cup caramel topping. In large bowl, use hands to crumble cake until no large chunks remain. Add icing mixture and dried apples; mix with fingers until well combined. Form mixture into cake balls. Chill in refrigerator at least 2 hours.

Step 5

Melt Candy Melts according to package directions. Dip sticks into melted Candy Melts and insert into cake balls; let set. Melt remaining caramel ice cream topping according to package directions.
