  • Remove stems from apples and rinse them thoroughly. Spear each apple through the bottom with a rounded wooden craft stick. Dry thoroughly and set aside.

  • In a large saucepan bring water, sugar and corn syrup to a boil. Reduce heat to medium-high. Continue to boil, stirring so as not to burn, until mixture reaches 300 degrees F (150 degrees C). Remove from heat, and while stirring, add food coloring and cinnamon oil.

  • Working quickly, dip each apple into the candy mixture, coating well. Place apples on prepared cookie sheet to cool. Refrigerate for 2 hours.

I used the calculator to make this recipe for 12. I followed the directions given to the letter. I feel the directions are incomplete. Once I removed my mixture from heat I still had the consistency of water. It wouldn't stick to anything! So I waited for the mixture to cool some in hopes it would thicken; and nothing. I wish I could contact the person who posted this recipe since the spoon tasted good just could not get it to stick on my apples. Read More

This was a wonderful recipe. I had no problems with it setting up. It is a candy so it does involve a lot of standing and stirring before the syrup is ready to use. I think I timed it at an hour which is accurate to what the recipe suggests. I think the reviewer below may not have cooked the candy long enough. I loved the taste. The extra we poured out on a cookie sheet and broke apart. Thank you for sharing! Read More
