You can get fresh apples anytime of year which makes this the perfect dessert for anytime of the year!  Just so you know….the praline candy layer does melt a bit from the moisture of the refrigerator.  The taste is still outstanding but you will need to absorb some of the syrup.  I used a paper towel.  This only happened to me AFTER being sliced or scooped out.  I think next time I’m going to make this as a trifle.
