12 gummy worms

Preheat the over to 350 degrees F. With a sharp paring knife, carefully core the apples from the stem end to about 1/2-inch from the bottom.

Arrange the apples in a single layer in a large baking dish. Add about 1 inch of water. Bake them, uncovered, for about 35-45 minutes. Baking time varies with size of apples. The should be just tender but not mushy and losing their shape. Allow the apples to cool at room temperature for about 10 min. Place the baked apples in 12 cereal or dessert bowls and spoon some of the syrup from the baking pan around each. Insert a gummy worm in the top of each apple, making sure that at least half of the body is sticking out!
