Candy Apples


Oh, Candy Apples reminds me of my childhood making Candy Apples with my mom; I made Candy Apples for my daughter and now my Grandchildren. Golden delicious apples dipped in a candy sauce, be careful when making these because to mixture is very hot, and can cause a nasty burn. You will need a  food digital thermometers and a heavy saucepan.

Making Candy Apples are great to make for Halloween  and a real treat for my Grandchildren,  at great family tradition, a crispy red delicious apple smoothed in a sweet crunchy candy shell.

4 medium-sized Red Delicious apples
4 wooden skewers
3 cups sugar
2/3 cup light corn syrup
2/3 cup water
1 teaspoon vinegar
6 to 8 drops red food color


1. Wash and dry apples; remove stems. Insert wooden skewers into stem end of each apple; set aside.

2. In a heavy saucepan combine sugar, corn syrup, water, and vinegar; mix well. Cook over medium high heat until mixture reaches 300 degrees F. stirring occasionally. Remove from heat; stir in food coloring. Quickly dip apples into the mixture; allow to drip off. Place apples on a buttered baking sheet to cool.
