  • 1 cup water
  • 6 large apples such as Pink Lady or Fuji, cored
  • 12 gluten-free soft caramel candies unwrapped
  • 6 teaspoons dark brown sugar
  • 2 tablespoons salted butter cut into 6 pieces
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon divided use


  • Use a 6-quart slow cooker. Pour the water into your slow cooker. Place the cored apples into the cooker, standing upright. Unwrap the caramel candies and push 2 candies into each apple. Top each apple with 1 teaspoon of brown sugar. Push a small square of butter into the apples, and then add a tiny pinch of cinnamon to each.
  • Cover and cook on low for 6-7 hours or on high for about 4 hours. The apples are finished when the skin has begun to pucker and they are tender enough to cut with a spoon.
