These sweet and delicious Candy Apples are really very simple to make and don't require any fancy ingredients but they sure are good!
Light Corn Syrup
Cinnamon Red Hot Candies
red food coloring
I just give it a good splash
wooden ice cream sticks
In heavy saucepan combine the sugar, corn syrup, candies, red food coloring, and 1 cup of water.
Place over medium heat and bring to a boil without stirring.
Set a candy thermometer on the side of the pot, making sure the tip doesn't touch the bottom and continue cooking, without stirring, until the temperature reaches 290 F, about twenty minutes.
Meanwhile, grease a cookie sheet. Remove stems from apples and insert a popsicle stick partway through each apple.
When candy is ready, remove pan from heat and remove thermometer. Swirl each apple into candy syrup until it is coated and then hold over the pot for a few seconds to allow any drips to fall off.
Place candied apples on a cookie sheet to cool. If the syrup begins to stiffen while you're still dipping apples you can place the pan over very low heat while you finish.
Let apples cool at least an hour before eating. You can speed this up by placing them in the fridge if you like.
Best if eaten within two days.
