Apple Caramel Bars

"We're pretty sure that this is the reason Johnny Appleseed got into the apple tree planting business--so that you could mix them with caramel and peanuts and make these delicious bars. Make these tasty treats at home with a little help from Duncan Hines and other items found in the baking section of your grocery store."
