The Perfect Fall Snack- Bloomin’ Baked Apple

By Payton Pinsky

Since the Autumn season has just begun I thought it fitting to make a yummy fall snack!  The first treat I found that I wanted to share with you is the “Bloomin’ Baked Apple”. This is a fun and delicious fall snack to make with loved ones, or just to cure your sweet tooth! It’s simple to make and doesn’t require many ingredients.

Watch this video for the recipe:

These, (plus some cinnamon) are all of the ingredients needed to make our Blooming Apple.
Our apple was a little smaller then what they used in the video, so we ended up just taking the core out and cutting the pieces up

I picked out a delicious apple, and recommend finding the largest apple you can, which will make it easier to cut.   I changed up the recipe just a bit by coating the inside of the apple with brown sugar to give it a little extra sweetness! I would recommend using half white sugar, and half brown sugar when making your sauce instead of all white sugar, just to give it a little more of an apple pie flavor. I topped it off with the sauce and popped it in the oven (which should be preheated to 375°). I ended up taking my apple out at 22 minutes which left the pieces a little hard. I suggest keeping it in the oven for 25-30 minutes to make sure your apple is soft enough to easily bite into.

Once the apple is out of the oven, top it off with your favorite vanilla ice cream and you are ready to enjoy a scrumptious fall snack!   Should you try out this recipe, let me know how your Bloomin’ Baked apple turns out.
