These cinnamon baked apples are made with red hots candy, butter, and raisins. Serve warm or cold, topped with whipped cream, for a sweet and spicy treat. They make the perfect dessert companion to a hearty winter's meal, or serve them up for an afternoon snack.

Ingredients

  • 1 1/2 cups water
  • 1/3 cup sugar
  • 5 tablespoons red hot cinnamon drop candies
  • 3 tablespoons light corn syrup
  • 6 cooking apples
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 6 tablespoons raisins
  • Whipped cream

Steps to Make It

  1. In a small saucepan combine water, sugar, red hot cinnamon drops, and corn syrup; heat over medium heat until candy dissolves.

  2. Meanwhile, peel apples about 1/3 of the way down from the top. Core but do not cut all the way through the bottom.

  3. Place apples in a 9-inch square baking dish. In the center of each apple place 1 teaspoon butter and 1 tablespoon raisins.

  4. Pour syrup over apples. Bake at 400 F for 35 to 45 minutes, frequently basting with syrup, or until apples are tender.

  5. Serve warm or cold, topped with whipped cream.
