Bloomin' Apples

Bloomin' Apples
Best For: Desserts
Prep Time: 10-15 minutes
Bake Time: 30 minutes
Serves: 4



    • 4 large apples (we recommend EverCrisp®, Honeycrisp, Pink Lady, or SweeTango®)
    • 4 Tbsp (½ stick) unsalted butter, melted
    • 1 Tbsp brown sugar
    • 1 Tbsp granulated sugar
    • 1 tsp ground cinnamon
    • 8 soft caramel squares
    • Optional: powdered sugar, vanilla ice cream, and caramel sauce


      1. Preheat oven to 375º F. Lightly grease a square baking dish with baking spray or butter.
      2. In a small bowl, whisk together butter, brown sugar, granulated sugar, and cinnamon.
      3. Cut out the core of each apple while keeping base intact. Make 2 circular cuts inside the apple and then make 8 vertical cuts down the sides to create small sections of apple (be sure not to cut all the way through, or the apple will fall apart).
      4. Place apples in a baking dish and fill each with two caramel squares. Brush butter mixture over apples, making sure to get in the nooks and crannies!
      5. Bake for 30 minutes or until apples are tender and slightly golden.
      6. Top with powdered sugar or ice cream and a drizzle of caramel. Enjoy!
