*Thank you Keebler and Dannon for sponsoring today’s post so that I can share this recipe with all of you. As always, all opinions are mine.*

It’s weird how I can spend hours making a cake but when it comes to pies, I just want them to be effortless like this Easy Pecan Pie Recipe or these Chocolate Pecan Pie Bars and today’s simple recipe makes the list too. It’s packed with layers upon layers of deliciousness. The bottom starts off with a graham cracker crust, which is then topped off with a rich and creamy yogurt cream cheese filling and that’s topped off with fresh apples, caramel sauce and chocolate chips.

Key ingredients for best spiced no bake apple pie

  • Cream cheese- Use full fat for best results.
  • Yogurt– Be sure it is Greek yogurt.
  • Granulated sugar- Versatile and used in a wide range of baked treats.
  • Cinnamon powder- Adds a sweet, warm aroma.
  • Nutmeg- Brings in a slight nutty and distinct flavor.
  • Allspice- Very useful as it mimics many other warm spices.
  • Cool Whip- Use full fat to get all the creamy texture.
  • Mini graham cracker crust- Pre-made crusts make for an easy dish.
  • Apples- Both Granny Smith and Red apple are used.
  • Mini chocolate chips- Simply placed as a sweet decoration.
  • Caramel sauce- Used as a delicious drizzle on top.


Omit spices- And mix 1 tbsp of this Crockpot Apple Butter instead.

Top it off- With Chantilly Cream, if you like, prior to serving.

Spice it up- In the filling, add nutmeg, cinnamon and allspice. Keep in mind that this will change the color a bit and make it brownish, which is a little weird.

Go big or go home- Instead of mini pies, you can make one big 8 inch pie.

Chocolate fruit combination– Replace caramel sauce with Hot Fudge Sauce (Chocolate Fudge Sauce).

Add a no bake crumble topping– By mixing together some almond flour, shredded coconut, finely chopped pecans, maple syrup, coconut oil or butter. It should be a thick crumbly mixture. This adds a lovely crunch in each bite.

Use this spiced cheesecake filling as a topping– On Apple Nachos or this this Easy Apple Cobbler.

Use salted caramel sauce– Instead of plain caramel sauce because the sweet and salty flavor combination is incredible.

Top it off– With some roughly chopped pecans for additional crunch and flavor.

Instead of caramel sauce– Try using this appetizing Dulce de Leche recipe.

Fresh apple alternative- Use instead these Sauteed Cinnamon Apples or Slow Cooker Fried Apples.

Use a variety of apples- To get the best flavor profile.

How to make mini easy caramel apple pie recipe?

  1. Mix together– Cream cheese, whipped cream, sugar, and yogurt.
  2. Fill– Mini pie crusts with this mixture.
  3. Top off- With apples and chocolate chips.
  4. Drizzle– Caramel sauce and enjoy!

Tips and techniques 

  • Use store-bought pie crusts or homemade– Both work equally well. I recommend this Homemade Graham Cracker Crust if you decide to make yours from scratch.
  • Homemade or store-bought caramel sauce can be used– Just make sure it’s not a very thin syrup which will just drip everywhere and become sticky and messy.
  • The amount of sugar can be adjusted– Based on your personal preference.
  • Since apples brown as they get older– Top these mini pies with fresh apples about an hour before serving.
  • Don’t use regular yogurt- Because the consistency is thinner. Instead, use full fat Greek yogurt, which is thicker.
  • Use Cool Whip or homemade- This time I used Cool Whip, which was just so convenient, especially during this busy time of the year. But I always know that my Homemade Whipped cream recipe will be there when I have the time to make it.
  • Use full fat ingredients– For maximum creaminess.

Recipe FAQs

How do you thicken a runny no bake pie filling?

What are the best apples to use in desserts?

Use a variety for best flavor profile such as Granny Smith for tartness and Red or Fuji for sweetness.


Room temperature- Don’t leave out for more than a few hours or else it will go bad.

Fridge– Leftovers can be stored in a sealed container in the fridge for up to 2 days. 

Freezer– Not recommended, because the dairy will separate when thawing.
