Fun Candy Apples










Candy Apples
Not your typical boring red candy apples anymore.


You will need;

Non-stick spray any brand

Cookie sheet

Candy Thermometer

Medium pot

Wooden spoon

Measuring spoons tbsp. And tsp.

Liquid measuring cup

Spatula

15 popsicle sticks

15 small snacking apples(super juicy, tangy-sweet) dipped in hot water, wiping the wax off, dry & remove stems

3 cups of white sugar

½ cup light corn syrup (karo)

1 cup water

1 tsp. vanilla

2 Tbsp. American white soft gel paste food coloring

2 tsp.  American gel paste food coloring of your choice, the more color you use, the brighter the color will be, I used Orange.

Spray your cookie sheet with a non-stick spray set aside.

In a med pot, sugar, corn syrup, and water over high heat, before turning heat up high inserted the thermometer but make sure the tip is not touching the bottom of the pan, mix well until sugar dissolves, bring to a boil.

 Once it starts to boil let it continue to boil until it reaches 302° on your candy thermometer.

This can take up to 20 minutes.

Once it starts to boil do not stir, let it do it's job just watch it...

When it reaches the hard crack 302° turn heat off and work quickly, be careful not to burn yourself, at this point add both colorings, and the vanilla, mix well and work quickly  the candy will cool fast and you need it hot to easily cover the apples and keep it from getting the look of bubbles and holes in the candy apples.

Ok ok now your ready to
dip your apples,  tilt your pot a little to help cover the apples, Swirl the apple tap a little letting the excess candy drip a little and this tapping will also give the candy in the apple a smooth look,

Place apples on the cookie sheet sprayed with the non-stick spray.

Repeat the process for the remaining apples.

By the time you finish dipping the last apple, the first few Apple's are cool anf ready to eat, now if you want to add any sprinkles you can do it as soon as they come out from dipping but this will give the candy in the pot time to cook and you don't want that, or you can lightly cost the candy apple with a very very thin layer of corn syrup and then sprinkle, or decorate it for the holidays.

Don’t refrigerate they will become very sticky and will start to bleed kinda like melting.

Apples will keep in an airtight container for about 5 days, not that they will last, but if storing keep in a cool place or they will melt. The longer you store them the more sticky it gets.

Have fun being creative
