3/4 cup chopped Fisher® Chef’s Naturals Walnut Halves and Pieces, divided
12 caramel candies, unwrapped
Preheat oven to 350°F. Line a 13 x 9-inch pan with aluminum foil and spray with non-stick cooking spray.
Combine cookie mix, butter, egg and 2 tbsp. water in a large bowl using a spoon until well blended. Stir in apple pieces and ½ cup walnuts. Bake for 25 to 30 minutes or until a toothpick inserted into the center of the pan comes out clean. Let cool 5 minutes.
