Caramel Apple Dessert

This is a very easy recipe for a yummy dessert! It's my first time to make a dessert using an instant pudding and wafers. It has been a tradition for us to have a pie as a dessert and it is always made with pudding and whipped cream or bought in store like the apple or pecan pie, our favorite. This time around, we get to eat a new, different and delicious dessert. Everyone loved it! It was easy to make and it was really tasty. You will love it because it has a lot of flavors. I followed the recipe below by Kraft but changed the ingredients mostly to non-fat, fatfree and sugar free ones.
60 NILLA Wafers, finely crushed (about 2 cups)
1/3 cup butter, melted
1 pkg. (8 oz.) PHILADELPHIA Cream Cheese, softened
1/4 cup sugar
3-1/4 cupsmilk, divided
1 tub (8 oz.) COOL WHIP Whipped Topping, thawed, divided
2 pkg. (3.4 oz. each) JELL-O Vanilla Flavor Instant Pudding
1/2 cup caramel ice cream topping, divided
1 each red and green apple, chopped
1/4 cup PLANTERS COCKTAIL Peanuts, chopped

MIX wafer crumbs and butter; press onto bottom of 13x9-inch pan. Beat cream cheese, sugar and 1/4 cup milk with mixer until well blended. Stir in 1 cup COOL WHIP; spread over crust.

BEAT pudding mixes and remaining milk with whisk 2 min. Stir in 1/4 cup caramel topping. Spoon over cream cheese layer; top with remaining COOL WHIP.

REFRIGERATE 5 hours or until firm. Top with apples, nuts and remaining caramel topping just before serving.
