Recipe by Milk & Cookies
I loved candy apples as a child. I never knew they had cinnamon until I found this recipe. I was surprized when they turned out just like the ones at the Fair. I forget how many apples it covers so I just guessed 10.

Well, at one point I was convinced that red hots never melt. They do. Then I was positive dry cinnamon cound not be stirred into hot candy. It can. What you end up with using this recipe is perfect cinnamon candy apples! Simply Lovely!!! Thanks for posting!!
