Poisoned Apples

READY IN: 15mins


  • 4
    Granny Smith apples
  • 18
    ounces fructose (health food section of your store)
  • blue liquid food coloring
  • black liquid food coloring


  • Conjure up some lightning in your secret laboratory so you can see more clearly, then summon the spirit of the Mirror.
  • Rinse the apples, remove the stems and insert wooden twigs or sticks into the center, pushing them in well so they are secure.
  • Roll the lemon back and forth several times across a work surface under the palm of your hand, pressing firmly, then cut into half and collect the juice.
  • In a cauldron as black as your soul, melt the fructose with the lemon juice and bring to a boil. When the candy is golden but not get coppery, add four drops of blue coloring to each one drop of black (according to the Mirror's advice).
  • Mix and remove from the heat.
  • Take the apples in the candy, coating them completely with both the sugar and your resentment.
  • Place the apples on a plate lined with parchment paper and let them cool completely, until the candy is as dry as your heart.
