  • 4 apples (I used Granny Smith, but you can choose your favorite)
  • 4 Tablespoons caramel (I used Smuckers caramel)
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 2 Tablespoons brown sugar
  • 4 scoops vanilla ice cream


  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  • Cover a baking sheet with aluminum foil.
  • Cut out the stem and seeds of the core of the apple using a small round scoop.
  • Cut the apple 5 times vertically, but don't cut all the way through the apple, just make deep cuts.
  • Cut the apple 5 times horizontally not all the way through but deep cuts like before.
  • Continue this process for all the apples.
  • Try to spread out the apple and its cuts as much as you can so you can get your caramel to spread throughout the apple as it bakes.
  • Place the cut apples on the covered baking pan.
  • Squeeze or poor 1 tablespoon of caramel into each apple.
  • Make sure it gets into the small cracks so it bakes into the whole apple.
  • Sprinkle cinnamon over the caramel and apple.
  • Sprinkle about 1/2 tablespoon of brown sugar over each apple.
  • Place in the oven and bake for 15 minutes or until the apple looks soft and the edges begin to curl.
  • Take out of the oven, and serve with a scoop of vanilla ice cream on top.
  • Garnish with more caramel and cinnamon.Enjoy!
