This is an old fashioned, oven baked dessert that everybody loves. My mom always baked apples, but I added the red-hots because I love them.

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. Read More

I really liked this one. My vote is to not leave out the red hots...It's like an inside-out candy apple. Tasty. Read More

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! Read More

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. Read More

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:) Read More

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.:) Read More

I used Granny Smith Apples and added a 1/4 pat of butter to each apple. YUMMY! This is the best baked apple recipe I've ever tried. Now I'm thinking about making an apple pie and adding the cinnamon red hot candies. Thank you so much for sharing this recipe. Read More
