    Units: US | Metric


    1. 1
      Line a baking sheet with waxed paper or parchment paper; spray lightly with cooking spray.
    2. 2
      Insert a wooden skewer into the stem end of each apple.
    3. 3
      Combine the sugar, corn syrup, water and cinnamon stick in a medium saucepan.
    4. 4
      Stir until the sugar is dissolved.
    5. 5
      Bring to a boil-- boil without stirring for 3 minutes.
    6. 6
      Brush down any crystals on the side of the pan with a pastry brush dipped in hot water.
    7. 7
      Boil until the syrup reaches 290 degrees (soft-crack stage, see note) and the syrup just begins to discolor.
    8. 8
      Remove the cinnamon stick.
    9. 9
      Immediately place the saucepan into a larger pot filled with hot (not boiling) water to the syrup from hardening.
    10. 10
      Add food coloring (we used about 7 drops).
    11. 11
      Working quickly, dip apples into syrup.
    12. 12
      Coat the apples evenly with the glaze.
    13. 13
      Twirl the apple at the end so the extra syrup drips off.
    14. 14
      Set the apples on prepared cookie sheet.
    15. 15
      Wait until the apples dry and cool completely before wrapping.
    16. 16
      Note: Soft crack stage is achieved when firm strands can be stretched or bent when removed from the water.

      This was the first time I have made these! I was a bit scared but your instructions were great and the apples were soooooo good! I need to work a bit quicker next time as there was some extra mixture and wanted to get another apple done but didn't quite make it :) I don't know what they taste like at the amusement park but I LOVE them here!!!! thanks heaps!
