Caramel Apple Dessert

This was pretty easy to make and a huge hit with the family.
And I may have added extra caramel... can't help it, love the stuff! :)
Also, a heads up. This needs 5 hours to chill. So prepare early. I'm sure it actually sets sooner than that... but... that is what it says to do. :)

This pic is from the website.... wanted to show you the layers.
I didn't add the peanuts... wasn't a fan of that idea.
I've said it before... I love it when my food is colorful and pretty! :)
60 NILLA wafers, finely crushed (about 2 cups)
1/3 cup butter, melted
1 pkg (8 oz) cream cheese, softened
1/4 cup sugar
3 1/4 cups milk, divided
1 tub (8 oz) cool whip, thawed, divided
2 pkg (3.4 oz each) Jell-O Instant Vanilla Pudding
1/2 cup caramel ice cream topping, divided
1 each red and green apple, chopped
1/4 cup peanuts, chopped (optional)


MIX wafer crumbs and butter; press onto bottom of 13x9-inch pan. Beat cream cheese, sugar and 1/4 cup milk with mixer until well blended. Stir in 1 cup COOL WHIP; spread over crust. 

BEAT pudding mixes and remaining milk with whisk 2 min. Stir in 1/4 cup caramel topping. Spoon over cream cheese layer; top with remaining COOL WHIP. 

REFRIGERATE 5 hours or until firm. Top with apples, nuts and remaining caramel topping just before serving.
