packed brown sugar
cinnamon red hot candies
We always make these as a treat for the kids and adults too. I make them on the stovetop in a big soup pan and fill the bottom with water, then spoon the mixture over the apples every once in a while.
I really liked this one. My vote is to not leave out the red hots...It's like an inside-out candy apple. Tasty.
I wasn't sure this would turn out so well without the butter, but I didn't have any and this was just about the only baked apple recipe that didn't call for it. I left out the red hots and this was wonderful!
Nice recipe, I also added about 1/4C. of raisins, it adds a little more flavor.
I also placed a dab of butter on the brown sugar mixture before placing the top of apple back on. I covered with tin foil for first 20 minutes then removed tin foil for the rest of baking time.
Really good flavor! I liked the red hots and would add them again but I was disappointed that they didn't melt and make a nice cinnamon syrup like I thought they would. They did soften and were chewy though, which was still tasty. I'll make these again probably next fall :)
Awesome! These were soooo good. I used Jonamacs and these tasted just like my favorite treat(cinnamon candy apples) from the state fair. The idea to leave the bottom when coring was great as it kept everything where it was supposed to be. Even if you don't like red hots you really should try them because they totally make these special. AND they are fat free. :)
I'm Sorry, but here I go again, lol. HOW CAN YOU RATE A RECIPE YOU DIDN'T MAKE?????? The recipe is for RED HOT baked Apples. They call for redhots. It's in the title. I don't get it, lol Anyway, outstanding recipe, sure to be a long time favorite in my house, lol!
