This recipe produces a very red, shiny candied apple. You can substitute a drop of cinnamon oil for the candies. After the apples are cooled, you can wrap them in colored plastic wrap and tie shut with curling ribbon. Makes a nice Halloween party treat.

Directions

  1. Insert a wooden craft stick into the bottom of each apple. Butter a baking sheet and set aside.
  2. Combine sugar, corn syrup and water in a heavy saucepan over medium heat. Heat, without stirring, to 270 to 290 degrees F (132 to 143 degrees C), or until a small amount of syrup dropped into cold water forms hard but pliable threads. Remove from heat and stir in candies and food coloring until just mixed.
  3. Holding each apple by its stick, quickly twirl in syrup, tilting pan to cover apple. Lift out of syrup, turning to allow drips to adhere to apple. Place apples on prepared baking sheet to cool completely.
  4. All done! Now take a photo, rate it, and share your accomplishments!

I just tried this recipie and I used the hard cinnamon candies which I found out wasn't a very good ideal. It made the apples a suggary color. Then I tried it using the cinammon oil and had much better results. Thanks so much for the tip about the oil. I just love candied apples

Looked and tasted just like the candy apples at the fair, but they were a little time consuming to make. The kids loved them at our annual hayride!

Not bad but you must cook the syrup as stated or the candy won't be correct. The first time I tried it, it was great. The second time, terrible. You really need a candy thermometer for it to be the perfect candy apple.
