light corn syrup
1 1/2 cups
red food coloring
Add about 1/2 pack (or more for your taste) of cherry Kool-Aid powder to the mixture to flavor. Other flavors of Kool-Aid would be yummy too.
If the recipe had included directions on cooking the sugar mixture, I would be able to enjoy the apples right now. It left out a very important step such as DON'T STIR THE MIXTURE AFTER IT BOILS OR IT WILL NEVER THICKEN!!! I found this crucial step in other recipes after waiting for the mixture to thicken. This recipe has potential to be good because it seems so easy, and it is, if it wasn't for the lousy lack of directions.
The apples came out great, tasted just like at the fair. Recommend using smaller apples and since the sugar hardens fast, don't do more than ten at a time. Also, make sure the apples are completely dry and wax free, otherwise the candy won't stick.
These apples taste just like the ones you get at a fair. I made them as a treat for my co-workers and they loved them. Just be sure you have enough time to wait for the sugar to reach the hard crack stage. i followed the advice of the person who said to put the pot in hot water when dipping and this kept the candy pliable for dipping as it does harden very quickly once removed from the water.
They turned out fantastic just like the ones at the fair you just have to cook it
until when dropped in water the candy forms strings it's must
I am 11 and have been baking since 5.believe me its a good recipe!
You have to work very fast or the syrup starts to thicken and won't coat evenly. I added grape oil to give it flavor. Even though I used small apples, I had to double the recipe to get 15 apples coated. Overall, they tasted good, but weren't worth all the work.
I made this once and it didn't turn out it didn't stick to the apples and harden....... i will try it again though and see if it will turn out.
