• Rome or Jonathan Apple, minimum 1 per head
• Granola, ½ cup (Optional)
• Granulated sugar, 1 cup
• Cinnamon powder, 1 tablespoon
Steps to Prepare
• Combine granulated sugar and powdered cinnamon.
• Push a stick through the core of an apple until it is secure on the stick. Add another one or more depending upon the length of the stick.
• Place the apples 2 or 3 inches above the fire. Turn the stick periodically while roasting. As the apples cook, the skins would be started to get browned and juice would be dripping slightly.
• After the skins get loose, remove the apples from the fire, but leave them on the stick. Carefully peel off the hot skins.
• Then roll the apples in the cinnamon sugar and roast them again over the fire, until the sugar mixture forms a warm glaze all over the apples.
• Finally, remove the apples from the hit, and roll them in the granola, if you prefer a top layer of crust. Let them cool a bit, then just bite in!
