Servings 8

INGREDIENTS

  • 8 Granny Smith Apples
  • washed and dried completely
  • with stems removed
  • 8 Candy Apple Sticks (much sturdier than regular skewers)
  • 2 cups sugar
  • 1 cup light corn syrup
  • 1 cup warm water
  • 1/8 teaspoon Cinnamon Oil
  • Few drops red food coloring

PREPARATION

STEP 1

Insert sticks into the top of each apple. Line a large baking sheet with foil and spray heavily with nonstick spray. Set aside.

STEP 2

Combine sugar, corn syrup, and water in a saucepan over medium high heat. Bring to a boil, stirring constantly.

STEP 3

Keep stirring until mixture reaches 300 degrees on a candy thermometer. If you’re unsure about the temperature of your candy, drop a bit in a class of cold water. If it hardens immediately and easily breaks in half, it’s ready. If it sinks to the bottom and is pliable, it needs to cook a bit longer.

STEP 4

Remove from heat and immediately stir in the cinnamon oil and red food coloring. Carefully dip apples in the coating and place on lined baking sheet to harden.

Note: This recipe calls for a candy thermometer. You don’t have to use cinnamon oil…any flavor candy oil that you want can be used.
