"This recipe produces a very red, shiny candied apple. You can substitute a drop of cinnamon oil for the candies. After the apples are cooled, you can wrap them in colored plastic wrap and tie shut with curling ribbon. Makes a nice Halloween party treat." — IRENERUSSELL

Looked and tasted just like the candy apples at the fair, but they were a little time consuming to make. The kids loved them at our annual hayride!
I just tried this recipie and I used the hard cinnamon candies which I found out wasn't a very good ideal. It made the apples a suggary color. Then I tried it using the cinammon oil and had much better results. Thanks so much for the tip about the oil. I just love candied apples
Not bad but you must cook the syrup as stated or the candy won't be correct. The first time I tried it, it was great. The second time, terrible. You really need a candy thermometer for it to be the perfect candy apple.
The apples came out so hard we couldn't eat them! Also, don't use the cinnamon oil, it makes them bitter!
These turned out great, just like the ones at the Fair. I followed the instructions exactly, made sure to put the apples in the freezer before i coated them and right after for about 10mins each time... Turned out great, everyone loved them! Thanks for sharing this Recipe...
Great receipe! I added blue food coloring and the apples came out purple.
I used a candy themometer, and cooked it to 305. It hardened like it was supposed too, but the flavor isn't like candy apples at the fair. I really don't like the flavor at all. I'll see what my kids think when they get home from school. Maybe I'll try it using red hot candies.
