Deconstructed Caramel Apple Cheesecake Stackers are made with no added sugar, a simple three-ingredient caramel sauce, and can be made in advance. They are fresh, sweet, salty, and savory.
My surprise ingredient for the deconstructed caramel apple cheesecake stackers is maple syrup. This creates a sweet enough treat without having to add all that extra sugar. And the caramel sauce, it's made with maple syrup, coconut milk, and vanilla extract. Yep, you read that right, just three ingredients for a perfect caramel sauce!

Nutrition (per 2 stacks): 175 Calories | 11 g Carbs | 14 g Fat | 3 g Protein | 4 g SugarIngredients
- 20 RITZ Original Fresh Stacks crackers
- 1 can Coconut Milk
- 3 tablespoons Pure Maple Syrup
- 1 tablespoon Pure Maple Syrup
- 1 large Apple, of your choice, diced
- 1/2 Lemon, juiced
- handful Slivered Almonds
- In a medium saucepan, combine coconut milk, maple syrup, and vanilla extract over medium high heat. Bring mixture to a rolling boil and cook down for 15-20 minutes. The caramel sauce will start to brown but is not done cooking until mixture pulls away from pan when scraped with a wooden spoon (see image below). Transfer to a bowl or mason jar and allow to cool for 30 minutes.
- In a large mixing bowl, whip softened cream cheese and maple syrup. Place cheesecake base into a piping bag or sandwich bag and cut a corner for piping.
- Dice up your apple and mix with lemon juice to stop the apples from browning.
- Start building your stackers - place one RITZ Original Fresh Stacks cracker on platter, circle on some cheesecake base, add diced apples, drizzle with caramel sauce, and sprinkle with slivered almonds.
Next time you are invited to a gathering, try these out. All of the ingredients can easily be found at Walmart while you are doing the rest of your shopping. There is also a limited time RITZ Ultimate Butter Fresh Stack for your snacking pleasure. Now, let's go snack!
