Red-hot cinnamon apple cobbler

1 tablespoon red hot cinnamon candies (or 1 teaspoon cinnamon)

6 medium apples, peeled, cored and sliced - 1/4-inch thick

1 standard box yellow or white cake mix

1 cup firmly packed brown sugar

1/2 cup (1 stick) butter or margarine, melted

Whipped topping or cream


Makes 16 servings.

Heat oven to 350 degrees. Dissolve the candies in 1 cup boiling water.

Place apple slices in an ungreased 9-by-13-inch pan. Pour flavored water over them. Combine the dry cake mix, brown sugar and melted butter in a large bowl.

Mix well; it will be crumbly. Sprinkle mixture over apples.

Bake 50 to 55 minutes, until lightly browned. Serve with whipped topping and garnish with additional hot candies if desired.
