  • 2 cups water
  • 3/4 cup cinnamon imperials Red Hots candies
  • 1/3 cup sugar
  • 6 medium tart apples peeled and quartered


  • Bring first three ingredients to a boil in a large sauce pan over medium high heat. Reduce heat to medium low and simmer until candy has dissolved.
  • Add apples. Simmer uncovered until apples are tender, about 20-30 minutes. Remove apples from heat and allow to cool slightly before serving. For a deeper red color, let apples continue to soak in the syrup for a few hours.
  • Remove apples with a slotted spoon into serving dishes. Drizzle any remaining syrup over top.
