Spice Baked Apples
For many years S’mores have been the undisputed campfire dessert champion … until now. These apples are guaranteed to make your mouth water. They are easy and great for camping or easy but elegant for making at home in the oven.

Nothing reminds you of an abundant harvest and fall like the aroma of cinnamon and baked apples. These gems are easy to put together and easy to bake yet have outstanding taste.

Prep Time: 15 minutes.

Cook Time: 40 minutes

Servings: 4

Ingredients:

  • 4 – apples red or green. We like Gala or Granny Smith.
  • 1 cup – brown sugar
  • 2 teaspoons – ground cinnamon
  • 1/2 teaspoon – nutmeg
  • 4 tablespoons – butter
  • 1/4 cup – raisins
  • 8-12 – caramel candies

Directions:

Packet preparation:

  • Core the apples and clean making sure to get the seeds.
  • Put the butter in a mixing bowl. Cut up the butter with a fork breaking in smaller pieces to aid mixing.
  • Add the brown sugar to butter and mix together.
  • Add in the cinnamon and nutmeg to the mix.
  • Finally add in the raisins.
  • Now place the core apple in the middle of a tinfoil square and lightly stuff the middle with the brown sugar mix.
  • When full press 2 or 3 caramels in the center.
  • Bring the corners of the tinfoil up around the apple and twist to make a handle to make it easier to get the apples out of the coals or oven.

Cooking:

Outdoors: Place aluminum foil packet on bed of prepare coals handle up turn several times. Should be ready in 40 minutes. Squeeze the apple to test if it is done, if it feels soft then they are done.
At Home: Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Place packets on a cookie sheet. Bake 40 minutes.

Notes:

  • For extra richness left over candy can be melted to with a little milk to make a caramel drizzle.
