Cook Time & Servings

Serves 2


  • 2 SnapDragon apples
  • 2 Tbsp butter, melted
  • 1 Tbsp brown sugar
  • 1 tsp ground cinnamon
  • 2 soft caramel candies

optional: vanilla ice cream


  1. Preheat grill to 350º F.
  2. Cut out the core of each apple while keeping the base intact.
  3. Make two 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 on the grill).
  4. Mix melted butter, brown sugar and cinnamon together and brush generously over the apples. Place a caramel candy in the hollowed-out center of the apple.
  5. Grill for an hour. Top with vanilla ice cream and serve hot.
