This just sounds like too much fun to serve kids at a party.
6 apples (change servings and units)
- 6 large golden delicious apples
- 1/2 cup raisins
- 1/2 cup chopped walnuts
- 1/2 cup firmly packed brown sugar
- 1/4 cup water
- 1/4 cup butter or margarine
- 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
- 1/2 teaspoon ground nutmeg
- 6 wiggly gummy worms
1Core apples from blossom ends, leaving stem end intact.
2Mix raisins and walnuts and stuff into cavities of cored apples.
3Set apples, stems up, in a 7 x 12 inch pan.
4In a separate mix brown sugar, water, butter, cinnamon and nutmeg.
5Stir over high heat until the mixture boils and then pour the hot syrup around apples.
6Bake uncovered in 350 F oven, basting occasionally with syrup, until apples are tender when pierced and skin begins to crack- about 30 to 35 minutes.
7Remove apples from oven, cool in the pan for at least 10 minutes or let cool to room temperature.
8Set each apple in a small bowl and spoon syrup around fruit.
9In top of apple, cut a hole large enough for one of the candy worms and tuck one end into each apple, leaving most of the worm dangling.
10Serve without explanation!
