Start with the apple pie filling or buy already prepared filling.
Peel, core and slice apples.
Melt butter and cinnamon over medium heat in a nonstick skillet. Stir in apples, sugar and 3 tablespoons water.
Cover and cook, stirring occasionally for 4-6 minutes or until very slightly softened.
In a small bowl, combine cornstarch and water.
Slowly pour the cornstarch in with the apples while stirring and continue to cook until apples are soft (not mushy) and filling is thickened. Let bubble 1 minute. Cool completely in the fridge.
For the Topping
Prepare the frosted flakes by crushing them in a ziploc bag with a mallet or rolling pin.
Heat a nonstick skillet over medium heat and add the butter and sugar, stirring continually until combined. Add in the flakes and stir until golden and caramelized, about 5-6 minutes. Be sure to not walk away or they will burn.
Pour onto parchment paper to cool.
For the Ice Cream
While the flakes are cooling, take out the ice cream to soften on the counter.
Meanwhile, whip the heavy cream until soft peaks form. Add in the powdered sugar and whip using a whisk or hand mixer, until peaks form and hold their form.
Dump the entire container of ice cream into a large bowl. Add the whipped cream and cinnamon and gently fold everything together.
To assemble, place 1/2 of the crunchy cereal on the bottom of a 9x13" pan. Fill with ice cream and top with the cooled apples. Immediately add the crunchy topping and place in the freezer for 4 hours.
To serve, drizzle with caramel sauce.
This recipe can use fresh or store bought filling.Store in an airtight container in the freezer.
