Chocolate and Caramel Apple Pie Galette


Now, don’t let the word Galette scare you….it is a French word that simply means…various types of flat, round or freeform crusty cakes. This beautiful apple dessert couldn’t be easier and boy is it pretty. We are FINALLY back to school here in CA. Can I get a woot woot please?! The boys are enjoying their classes and teachers, so mama is happy!

I LOVE the fall flavors of apples and cinnamon then toss on some chocolate and caramel…..I think I’ve died and gone to heaven 🙂  Hope you will all enjoy this simple yet completely impressive and scrumptious “freeform” little pie. Take a peek!

Here’s your trusty line up of ingredients 🙂

Dice 2 nice apples

Brown a few Tablespoons of butter…

….and throw in your diced apples, brown sugar and cinnamon.

Pour onto center of rolled pie dough…

quarter a handful of Rolo’s…

Place on top of apples….

Now the fun part….folding your dough edges. Don’t worry too much about this part. Do the best you can, it even looks good when it’s not perfect 🙂  You basically pick up a piece of dough and fold it over. Do this around the entire circle of dough.

    Your boys couldn’t be cuter! This galette is pure evil…and I mean that in the best way possible.

  2. Nickie

    Made this last night! VERY good!!!! I added a little more chocolate than what was in your recipe ~ what can I say I like chocolate!! ; )
    I think next time I may try making this recipe w/ snickers candy bars instead of the rolos for an apple, peanut butter, chocolate taste! Just a thought!!!! VERY good, we ate every last bite!!!

  3. Sue

    I just got back from the store with the ingredients to make this! My dad requested an apple pie for the game tomorrow and my response was “I don’t make pie!”

    Well… he’s gonna love this! And he might even love you, too! Hahah.

    Thanks so much 🙂

    I love the fall because it means the house doesn’t have to get overheated with the baking!!! This one is a must for one of the first fallie foods 🙂 thanks so much for sharing it.

  5. Bonnie@WhatAboutPie

    Oh man, that looks so delicious! I love fall recipes and I so ready for Fall. I like the idea of using the chopped Rolo’s. That is so different!

    Thanks for the warning right off telling me not to be intimidated. I am also going to make this recipe!!! I hope to see you soon.
    ps – how do you do the cool scrapbooking type feature next to the photo of the boys?

    I enjoy making Galettes and adding chocolate and caramel to an old-fashioned apple gallette is a nice twist!

  10. marla {family fresh cooking}

    That is such a cute photo of your boys. This galette looks AMAZING!! It is so funny how the name can be intimidating….but in actuality it is simple to prepare. Fun choice to go with the Rolo’s! xo

    We made this last night and it was delicious! I piled my apples too high in the middle, need to spread them around more like you did next time 🙂 Making 2 more tonight while I have a get together, hubby asked for a few more rolos mixed in….he thought they were amazing!

  12. Jessica@tastyandtrim

  18. Cookbook Queen

    This look so yummy, love it!! My little boy started kindergarten this year, and I guess they have been learning about apples. He came home and told me that we need to bake an apple pie….so this recipe would be perfect for us to bake together.

  19. Tickled Red
