Cut off a 24-inch strip of aluminum foil for each apple.
Fold the foil in half and place a cored apple in the center.
Fill the hole with 1 tablespoon red-hot candies, 1 tablespoon raisins, and 1 teaspoon butter or margarine.
Wrap foil around each apple and twist the ends to seal.
Bake at 425 degrees for about 30 minutes or until tender.
Fold down foil and serve in the little foil container. This can also be done in the microwave. Use plastic wrap in place of foil and place each apple in a small saucer or Pyrex bowl. Microwave on high for 5 minutes, rotating saucer once.
Test for doneness.
Make as many as you want.
