It’s apple season and our fruit basket is overflowing with every variety and our candy basket is overflowing with Werther’s Chewy Caramels. This led to an impromptu decision by my daughter and I to bake ourselves and afternoon treat. The result was so easy and delicious and was ready just after we finished our lunch.

Baked Werther’s Caramel Apple Recipe
2 medium apple, any variety, but we chose granny smith
2 tablespoons butter, melted
1 tablespoon brown sugar
couple of shakes of cinnamon
8 chewy Werther’s Caramel candies
About 1 cup apple juice
Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Cut the top of the apple off and peel abut 1/2 inch. Using a melon baller, scoop out the core, making sure not to penetrate the bottom (you want it to be like a bowl). Combine the melted butter, brown sugar and cinnamon and brush the apple with the mixture on the inside and outside. Stuff the hole with 4 caramel’s and place in a baking dish. Fill the bottom of the baking dish with about 1/2 inch of of apple juice. Place in over and cook for 24 to 30 minutes or until apple is soft. Remove and let sit for about 5 minutes before serving. Make sure to eat it warm!
