    6      lg            Golden Delicious apples
      1/2  c             *each* raisins and chopped walnuts
      1/2  c             Firmly packed brown sugar
      1/4  c             Water
      1/4  c             (1/2 stick) butter/margarine
      1/2  t             *each* ground cinnamon and ground nutmeg
    6                    Wiggly  candy worms (“Gummy Worms”)
    1      c             Whipping cream -- optional
 Core apples from blossom ends, leaving stem ends intact. Mix raisins 
   and walnuts and stuff into cavities of cored apples. Set apples, 
   stems up in a 7x12-inch pan. 
   In a 1 to 2 quart pan, mix brown sugar, water, butter,cinnamon, and 
   nutmeg; stir over high heat until mixture boils. Pour hot syrup 
   around apples. Bake, uncovered, in 350~ oven, basting occasionally 
   with syrup, until apples are tender when pierced and skin begins to 
   crack, 30 to 35 minutes. 
   Remove apples from oven; cool in pan at least 10 minutes or let cool 
   to room temperature.  Set each apple in a small bowl and spoon syrup 
   around fruit. In the top of each apple, cut a hole large enough for 
   one of the candy worms and tuck one end into each apple, leaving most 
   of the worm dangling. Offer cream to pour over apples. Makes 6 
   ghastly servings.
