Nanda's Delectable Cooked Apples

A versatile, sweet treat that can be served as a healthy snack or a tasty dessert

This homemade recipe is a great snack option for children

or adults looking to satisfy a sweet tooth, and is a perfect weekend dessert for the entire family.


Cooked Apples

  • 6 Honeycrisp or Red Delicious apples

  • 1/8 tsp freshly ground nutmeg

  • 1/2 tsp ground cinnamon

  • 5 whole cloves—to be disposed of after cooking


  • Häagen-Dazs Vanilla Gelato or Ice Cream

  • Ghirardelli Caramel Premium Sauce


Wash, peel, and chop the apples, discarding the core. Place in a pot along with the nutmeg, cinnamon, and cloves.

Cover pot and simmer over low temperature, stirring often.

Depending on the type of apples used, a little bit of water might be necessary so the apples don’t stick to the bottom of the pot.

Once the apples have softened, smash them with a fork or a potato masher.

Serve warm topped with a spoon of ice cream, or chill and serve cold by itself.

Storage: Place cooked apples into a glass container with a lid. Reheat in microwave or on the stovetop, if desired.
