I remember, back in the day on those cold winter Ohio days when my mom would whip these baked apples up in the oven and serve us a warm and comforting treat just for no reason at all. It explains my love for apple pie, I think. However, one thing I realized when I came across this recipe for crock pot baked apples was how simple it was. Minimal ingredients pack a big punch with this treat. Being able to put these babes in the crock and then come home to them later is an even better reward.
Truly, this is so easy. You could have the kids or grand kids help in the morning and then have a delicious and heart-warming snack in just a few short hours. You can also set them up the night before. They will delight in that these apples are transformed into a dessert that’s not only indulgent but a bit healthy too.

Quick Tip: You can drizzle the apples with caramel for an added flavor, but they don’t need it.
