It’s October, what better way to celebrate autumn than making delicious candied apples. This recipe will bring back memories of your childhood and will help to make new memories for your kids. Candied apples have traditionally been colored red, but we don’t see why you can’t use your favorite colors.
Old Fashion Candied Apples
- 12 medium sized apples, granny Smith seems to be the most popular, but we’d like honey crisp
- 2 cups white sugar
- 1 cup light corn syrup
- 1 1/2 cups water
- 8 drops of your favorite food coloring
- 12 caramel or candy apples sticks
- Lightly greased cookie sheets. Insert craft sticks into whole, stand apples.
- In a medium saucepan over medium-high heat, combine sugar, corn syrup and water.
- Heat to 300° to 310°F. Or until a small amount of syrup dropped into cold water forms hard, brittle thread.
- Remove from heat and stir in your favorite food coloring.
- Holding Apple by its stick, dip in syrup and remove and turn to coat evenly.
- Place on prepared sheets to harden.
