If you’re on a diet, Halloween can present a bit of a problem for keeping on track. However, these two recipes from Weight Watchers will satisfy your sweet tooth without wrecking your diet!

Baked Candy Apples

PointsPlus® Value: 5

Servings: 4

Preparation Time: 5 min

Cooking Time: 40 min

Like the classic but with a delicious caramel-candy twist:

  • 4 medium apple(s), unpeeled, Granny Smith recommended
  • 1/2 cup(s) water
  • 1 Tbsp fresh lemon juice
  • 2 average cinnamon stick(s)
  • 7 piece(s) Weight Watchers by Whitman’s Pecan crowns, or caramel medallions


Preheat oven to 350°F. Using a melon baller or paring knife, de-stem and core each apple, leaving the bottoms intact.

Place cored apples in an 8-inch glass baking dish. Pour water around apples in baking dish. Add lemon juice and cinnamon sticks.

Cut candy into 1/4-inch pieces. Set aside 8 teaspoons of candy pieces. Place remaining candy pieces into each apple.

Place apples in oven and bake until apples are thoroughly cooked and fork-tender, about 30 to 35 minutes. Remove from oven briefly and top each apple with 2 teaspoons candy. Return to oven and bake until candy is just melted, about 3 to 5 minutes. Remove promptly and serve warm. Yields 1 baked apple per serving.

Notes For extra low-calorie decadence, add a dollop of fat-free whipped topping to each apple before serving (could affect PointsPlus values).
