Cinnamon Candied Apples Recipe

For years, we enjoyed baked cinnamon apples at Christmas when my great-grandmother made them. When she passed away, no one could find the recipe. I eventually came across this stovetop version and have continued her tradition. —Angie Marquart, Mt. Gilead, Ohio
TOTAL TIME: Prep/Total Time: 15 min. YIELD:6 servings


  • 6 medium tart apples
  • 2 cups water
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1 cup red-hot candies
  • Fresh mint, optional


  • 1. Peel apples and cut in half lengthwise; remove cores. In a large saucepan over medium heat, bring the water, sugar and candies to a boil, stirring constantly until sugar and candies are dissolved. Reduce heat; carefully add apples. Cook, uncovered, until apples are tender, about 8 minutes.
  • 2. With a slotted spoon, transfer apples to a serving dish; pour syrup over apples. Serve warm or chilled. Garnish with mint if desired. Yield: 6 servings.

"I love this recipe! At Christmas my grandma would be frisked at the door for her "rose apples" as she called them. One year she forgot to bring them (she left them at home) and we teased her that all she would get for Christmas was a chunk of coal."
