4 large tart apples, cored
1/2 cup apple juice
8 tablespoons brown sugar
12 red hots candies
4 tablespoons butter or margarine
1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
Whipped cream (optional)
Peel about 3/4 inch off the top of each apple; place in a crock pot. Pour juice over apples. Fill the center of each apple with 2 tablespoons sugar, three red hots, 1 tablespoon butter and two caramels. Sprinkle with cinnamon.
Cover and cook on LOW for 4 to 6 hours or until the apples are tender. Serve immediately with whipped cream, if desired.
