It’s getting closer to Halloween and I’ve been having fun in the kitchen. I’ve always loved the idea of candy apples and just assumed I would have to get them at the fair or at the store or buy a candy making apple kit, but I was wrong very wrong. It’s so easy to make candy apples and these red hot candy apples are impossible to say no to. Snow White would have to get in line to try these beauties. YUM!
Red Hot Candy Apples Recipe
In a deep sauce pan heat over medium heat, sugar, red hot candies, water, light corn syrup until boiling.
Using a candy thermometer without touching the bottom of the pan continue cooking without stirring until the mixture reaches 290 Degrees F.
While you are waiting
Grease a coking sheet
Insert sticks into the apples
When the sugar syrup is ready, remove the pan from the heat and remove the thermometer.
Swirl each apple in the hot cinnamon-candy syrup to coat evenly. Lift out the apples and swirl over the saucepan for a few more seconds to catch the drips.
Place the candy apples on the cookie sheet.
Cool at least 1 hour.
This is yet another great recipe from Southern Plate.
