Wormy Apples


Scroll down to see more baked apple recipes.


  • 6 large golden delicious apples
  • 1/2 cup raisins
  • 1/2 cup pecans or walnuts, chopped
  • 1/2 cup firmly packed brown sugar
  • 1/4 cup water
  • 4 tablespoons butter
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • 6 wiggly candy worms


Core apples from blossom ends, leaving stem ends intact. Mix raisins and pecans; stuff into cavities of cored apples. Carefully set apples, stems up in a lightly buttered baking pan.
In a 1 to 2-quart saucepan, mix brown sugar, water, butter, cinnamon & nutmeg; stir over high heat until mixture boils. Pour hot syrup around apples.
Bake, uncovered, in 350° oven, basting occasionally with syrup, until apples are tender when pierced and skin begins to crack, 30 to 35 minutes.
Remove apples from oven; cool in pan at least 10 minutes or let cool to room temperature. Set each apple in a small bowl and spoon syrup around fruit.
In the top of each apple, cut a hole large enough for one of the candy worms and tuck one end into each apple, leaving most of the worm dangling.
Serve with whipped topping or whipped cream.
