I looked for this recipe and couldn't find it here on Zaar, it's one of our new favorites. DH likes it with the cinnamon candies, I prefer to leave them out and use a dash of cinnamon after I cook the apples the first time. The boys LOVE this, it's quick and easy and really feels like a treat! You can use granny smiths, though you may need to add a sprinkle of brown sugar. We like to use Fuji apples, sweet enough on their own and don't cook to mush. You can also substitute 1 chopped caramel candy for the cinnamon candies for a caramel apple pie.
