- 1/2 cup water
- 1 cup cinnamon candies (recommended: Red Hots)
- 6 small red apples
- Cream Cheese Topping, recipe follows
- Freshly parsley or mint leaves, for garnish
In a medium nonstick pan, dissolve the cinnamon candies in water over low heat. Peel, core and cut the apples in 1/2 lengthwise. Once the candy has dissolved arrange the apples, flat side down, in the pan. Cook on low to medium heat until the apples are tender; turning often, about for about 45 minutes. The apples should be the color of the candy. When ready transfer to a serving platter and let cool.
Once apples have cooled dollop 1 teaspoon of the Cream Cheese Topping on each apple. Garnish with a small piece of fresh parsley or a fresh mint leaf. Refrigerate until serving.
