Reynolds Kitchens® Tips

Reynolds Kitchens Tip

Using Reynolds Wrap® Non-Stick Foil on the grill makes cooking, cleaning up and wrapping leftovers a breeze.


  • 12 apples of your choice
  • 1 cup brown sugar
  • 1 cup granola
  • 1 cup candied cashews1 cup trail mix
  • ½ cup honey
  • Whipped cream or ice cream
  • 1 whole nutmeg and a microplane
  • Cinnamon
  • Cinnamon sticks for garnish
  • 1 roll of Reynolds Wrap® Non-Stick Aluminum Foil
  • 1 apple corer


Step 1

Core out the apples and cut off the bottom 3/4-inch of the core and stuff back in the bottom.

Step 2

Using a spoon or melon baller, carve out the cavity created after coring to make more room for ingredients.

Step 3

Form a nest with Reynolds Wrap Non-Stick Aluminum Foil for the apples to stand on. Simply tear off about 12 inches of foil and then roll up the edges into a nest.

Step 4

Fill with your choice of the granola, nuts, and/or trail mix.

Step 5

Top with a tablespoon of brown sugar and a tablespoon of honey.

Step 6

For Granny Smith apples, drop an extra tablespoon of brown sugar in the bottom before filling with the other ingredients to counter the tartness.

Step 7

Cover each apple with the Reynolds Wrap® Non-Stick Foil, place the “dull” side facing inward (that’s the non-stick side).

Step 8

Prepare the grill for two-zone grilling by placing hot coals on one side of the grill and nothing on the other.

Step 9

Target temperature inside the grill is 300° F.

Step 10

Place the apple packets on the side with no heat and bake until soft (these took about 25 minutes).

Step 11

Remove from the heat, carefully remove the foil and slice. Serve half a slice per person or a whole apple.

Step 12

Add ice cream or whipped cream.

Step 13

Dust with fresh ground nutmeg or cinnamon.

Step 14

Add a spring of mint for garnish.
