Ingredients

  • 6 apples
  • 6 Cinnamon or Popsicle Sticks
  • 2 cups sugar
  • 3/4 cup water
  • 1/2 cup light corn syrup
  • 1/2 teaspoon red food coloring (possibly more depending on type)
  • 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon

Instructions

  1. Wash and dry apples. Any moisture left on the skin will prevent the caramel from sticking. Insert Popsicle or cinnamon into the stem of the apple to use as a handle. Lay wax paper on a baking sheet and spray with cooking spray.
  2. In a heavy saucepan combine all ingredients. Whisk until sugar is dissolved. When the mixture comes to a boil do not stir or whisk, only swirl the entire sauce pan every few minutes
  3. Allow to boil over medium-high heat for approximately 10-15 minutes or until mixture reaches the hard crack stage. Use the cold water test described above to check the stage of your sugar.
  4. Remove from heat and quickly dredge apples in mixture. set on baking sheet and allow to set.
  5. Enjoy the same day as making. Humidity can impact the candy coating, preventing it from setting. For best results, make on a cool, dry fall day. Enjoy!
