Original recipe makes 8 apples Change Servings

Directions

  1. Insert a wooden craft stick into the bottom of each apple. Butter a baking sheet and set aside.
  2. Combine sugar, corn syrup and water in a heavy saucepan over medium heat. Heat, without stirring, to 270 to 290 degrees F (132 to 143 degrees C), or until a small amount of syrup dropped into cold water forms hard but pliable threads. Remove from heat and stir in candies and food coloring until just mixed.
  3. Holding each apple by its stick, quickly twirl in syrup, tilting pan to cover apple. Lift out of syrup, turning to allow drips to adhere to apple. Place apples on prepared baking sheet to cool completely.

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...

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.
