Caramel Apple Pie Bars



90 Nilla wafers
7 1/2 T melted butter
3/4 cup sweetened condensed milk (I used the whole can)
3/4 tsp cinnamon
1 1/2 granny smith apples, peeled, cored and diced (I will use 2 apples next time)
3 cups white chocolate chips
30 rolos, unwrapped
3/4 cup chopped pecans

Preheat oven to 350 degrees and line a 9X13" pan with foil - leave some hanging over the end edges so you can lift the whole thing out when baked and cooled.

Process Nilla wafers in food processor until fine crumbs.  Add melted butter to crumbs and mix until well blended.  Press into prepared pan and bake for 5 minutes.

Stir sweetened condensed milk together with cinnamon in a small bowl.

Sprinkle apples, white chocolate chips, rolos, and chopped pecans over hot crust.  Pour cinnamon sweetened condensed mixture evenly over the top.  Bake another 20 minutes.  Cut when cooled.  VERY rich so small portions are adequate.  

NOTE:  I placed mine in the fridge after cooling for about an hour to help things firm up.  They cut and serve much better this way.  RAVE reviews from my "testers".  This was modified from a Pinterest pin found at http://www.crazyforcrust.com/2015/08/caramel-apple-pie-magic-bars/
