1 box (15 ounces) yellow cake mix
2 cans (20 ounces each) apple pie filling
1 stick butter, melted
1/2 cup caramel sundae syrup (plus extra for drizzling on top)
Vanilla ice cream (optional)
Spray inside of crock pot with non-stick cooking spray or grease with butter or line with a slow cooker liner. Dump cans of apple pie filling into bottom of crock pot, and spread evenly. Evenly drizzle 1/2 cup caramel syrup over apple pie filling. In a medium mixing bowl, combine dry cake mix and melted butter, and stir until crumbly (break up large chunks into small crumbles using a spoon). Pour butter/cake crumble mixture over the caramel apple pie filling layer in the crock pot, spread out evenly, and cover crock pot with lid. Cook on HIGH for 2 hours, or LOW for 4 hours. Serve up with vanilla ice cream and a drizzle of caramel on top.
