DIRECTIONS

  • Remove stems from apples, wash, and pat dry.
  • Insert a wooden skewer in each apple, running through the apple from stem end to base without protruding all the way through the bottom end.
  • Combine sugar, corn syrup, cinnamon candies, and water in medium-sized saucepan.
  • Cook until candies dissolve, stirring constantly.
  • Be careful not to boil.
  • Add cinnamon, vanilla, cloves, and food coloring.
  • Mix thoroughly.
  • Boil mixture to 300 degrees using a candy thermometer without stirring.
  • While mixture is boiling, generously prepare a baking sheet with cooking spray so it's ready ahead of time.
  • As soon as mixture reaches 300 degrees, remove it from heat and quickly dip each apple-one by one-into the mixture until it is thoroughly coated.
  • Set coated apples, standing on their bottoms with skewer pointing up, on baking sheet until mixture hardens.
  • Let apples reach room temperature before eating.
