Healthy Crockpot Candied Apples

This is a Hungry Girl Recipe that I have been cooking a few years. It makes a delicious hot apple dish that uses only a little fat and sugar.

This dish is great served with roast pork or chicken.

It also makes a yummy dessert—maybe sprinkle a little granola over an individual serving.

Method:

Slow Cooker Crock Pot

Ingredients

8
cooking apples, peeled and cut into chunks (i like to use multiple apple varieties.)
3 Tbsp
red hots
1 Tbsp
light buttery spread (like brummel & brown), room temperature
2 Tbsp
lemon juice
1 tsp
vanilla extract
1 tsp
ground cinnamon
1/4 tsp
ground nutmeg
1/8 tsp
salt
2 Tbsp
water

Directions Step-By-Step

1
Place apples and red hots in a medium-sized crock pot.
2
In a small bowl, combine all the other ingredients and mix well. Pour mixture over the contents of the crock pot.
3
Cover and cook on low for 7-8 hours until the apples have softened. (Check the apples after half the the time; I usually don't cook mine as long as the recipe suggests.)
4
Serve warm or cold.
5
Note: I have used the stovetop to cook this recipe.
In a sauce pan, add water and red hots. Cook on low until the red hots are melted into the water, a few minutes. Mix all the remaining ingredients except apples. Add to the pan, stir, and then add the apples. Stir and cover. Cook until the apples are nicely tender, stirring occasionally, about 7 minutes.
