“I looked for this recipe and couldn't find it here on Zaar, it's one of our new favorites. DH likes it with the cinnamon candies, I prefer to leave them out and use a dash of cinnamon after I cook the apples the first time. The boys LOVE this, it's quick and easy and really feels like a treat! You can use granny smiths, though you may need to add a sprinkle of brown sugar. We like to use Fuji apples, sweet enough on their own and don't cook to mush. You can also substitute 1 chopped caramel candy for the cinnamon candies for a caramel apple pie.”

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Cube apples and place in 2 microwaveable mugs.
  2. Add 6 cinnamon candies to each mug, if desired.
  3. Microwave each mug of apples for 2 minutes on high.
  4. Stir to combine, cook for another 2 minutes each to fully soften and cook the apples.
  5. Add 2 crushed crackers for each mug (we like to stir the first one into the full mug of apples, the second one into the top layer).
  6. Top each serving with a wedge of cheese, if desired.
  7. Add your choice of whipped cream, frozen whipped topping, frozen yogurt, or ice cream, dust with cinnamon, and serve.
