Crock Pot Caramel & Nut filled Apples

This is a great recipe...simple and tasty! And healthier choice to eating chips and dips during the big game.

Caramel & Nut Filled Apples

4 Tablespoon chopped nuts, your choice
4 large tart apples (thanks Rosemary for the tips on apples)
1/2 cup apple juice
8 Tablespoons brown sugar
12 hot cinnamon candies (Red Hots)
4 Tablespoons butter (cut the stick of butter into 4 - 1 Tablespoon slices)
8 Caramel Candies
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon

You will want to core the apples and remove about a 1/2-inch strip of apple peel of the top of each apple. Fill each apple with 2 Tablespoon brown sugar that is mixed with 1 Tablespoon of nuts, 2 cinnamon candies, 1 Tablespoon butter, and 2 caramel candies. (I mix the ingredients for each apple in a small bowl, so that everything is mix together before putting them inside the apples.) Pour Apple juice into the crock pot. Place the apples inside the crock pot. Sprinkle each apple with cinnamon. Cover and cook on LOW 4 to 6 hours. You want the apples to be tender. Serve hot...

I happen to like caramel, so I will melt some caramel and pour it over each apple after they have cooked. And you can serve this with whipped cream or ice cream also.

Happy Slow Cooking! Enjoy and Hugs...
