Healthy Crockpot Candied Apples
Ruth Ann Vokac
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.

How to Make Healthy Crockpot Candied Apples
- Place apples and red hots in a medium-sized crock pot.
- In a small bowl, combine all the other ingredients and mix well. Pour mixture over the contents of the crock pot.
- Cover and cook on high for 4 hours or on low for 7-8 hours until the apples have softened. (Check the apples after half the time; the full time gives an applesauce consistency, but I prefer to have chunks of soft apples.)
- Serve warm or cold.
- 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.
