Candied Apples


Original recipe makes 15 candied apples

 15 apples
 2 cups white sugar
 1 cup light corn syrup
 1 1/2 cups water
 8 drops red food coloring


1-Lightly grease cookie sheets. Insert craft sticks into whole, stemmed apples.

2-In a medium saucepan over medium-high heat, combine sugar, corn syrup and water. Heat to 300 to 310 degrees F (149 to 154 degrees C), or until a small amount of syrup dropped into cold water forms hard, brittle threads. Remove from heat and stir in food coloring.

3-Holding apple by its stick, dip in syrup and remove and turn to coat evenly. Place on prepared sheets to harden.
