  1. Insert craft sticks into apples. Line a baking sheet with waxed paper.
  2. In a heavy-bottomed saucepan over medium-high heat, pour candies and water. Occasionally brushing down sides of pan with a heat-resistant pastry brush, heat candy to 300 to 310 degrees F (149 to 154 degrees C), or until a small amount of syrup dropped into cold water forms hard, brittle threads. Remove from heat and let cool slightly.
  3. Dip apples in hot liquid and place on waxed paper to harden.

This is a great recipe, but I changed a few things and have a few tips to make your apples incredible! First, you need a sweet and CRISP apple to get a good result here. I used Honey Crisp app...

Just for fun I made candied apples one year at Christmas with a candy cane instead of a stick. Start a punch hole with a small paring knife then put the non-hook end into the apple so the crook...

Great recipe except - as everyone else has said - I can't imagine what size apples you would need to get a dozen out of this mixture. Mine were pretty small and I didn't even come close. Used ...
