Baked Caramel Apple Goodness

On Friday night, I had my little sister and two pseudo-sisters over for wine, dessert, hot tub action, and a movie. It was a perfect girls night to lay low and enjoy each other's company. Because the biggest loser competition is still in full effect at work, I wanted to make something tasty that wouldn't blow the calorie scale...and I found the PERFECT treat! Baked Caramel Apple Goodness!

Try this one, folks. You'll LOVE it!

The ingredients include: a couple glasses of Opolo Rousanne (at least that's what I started with), four large green apples, 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon, 1/8 teaspoon nutmeg, 1/2 cup uncooked oatmeal, 2 tablespoons caramel dip, and 2 tablespoons softened butter.Begin by slicing the butts off your apples so they all sit flatly in your greased baking dish;
Core the apple;
In a mixing bowl, mix cinnamon and nutmeg. For giggles, I used fresh nutmeg from Jamaica!
Add the oatmeal;
Soften the butter (hello Moo Cow!);
Then add it to the dry ingredients;
Being sure to mix it all together and form a paste-like substance. Then fill the apples, place in the baking dish and cover with foil. Bake for 40 minutes on 400. Remove, add a glop (yes, that's a technical term) of caramel and bake for another 5 minutes.
Remove from dish and serve with tongs...the apple will be very soft and squishy, so the tongs will be the best thing to serve with;
Then have your guests slice those bad boys open;
They will ooh and ahhh;
And eat every last bite!
Eat up and enjoy this one, friends!!!
