1 crisp Gala apple 1 tbsp of sweet dried cranberries 1 tbsp of brown sugar 2 tsp of margarine 1/2 C of granola
How to Make It:
Cut the apple in half, cut out the core, scoop out the seeds and place the halves in separate bowls. Sprinkle the cranberries evenly over both halves of the apple. Sprinkle each apple with brown sugar. Place 1 tsp of margarine onto each apple half. Cover the bowls with plastic wrap leaving a little of the bowl uncovered so steam can be released. Microwave on high for 3 minutes or until the apple is just beginning to soften. Sprinkle with the granola before serving.
Core apples half way. In a microwave safe dish, place cored apples. Place red hots and mini marshmallows into the center of each apple. Cover with plastic wrap. Cook 5-7 minutes. Turn apples and cook another 6 minutes. Let cool about 5 minutes. Drizzle each apple with caramel sauce if desired. Serve.
