What a GREAT recipe! I made this adding 4 drops of red food coloring and 1/3 cup of little red cinnamon candies. This recipe easily coated 13 small macintosh apples, a three pound bag. The coating was wonderfully hard, not sticky in a 65 degree, low humidity day and that does make a difference! I dipped directly from the pan on the stove on low heat, instead of over hot water with great results. No more box mix for me! Thanks for sharing this recipe!
