DIRECTIONS

  • Clean and dry the apples.
  • Try to remove as much of the wax as possible.
  • If you purchase them from your local farmer�s market then chances are they have not been treated with the food grade wax that makes then shine. Remove any stems or leaves and insert a twig into the end of each apple. To facilitate easier twig entry you can carefully sharpen the end of the twig or use a candy stick to create a guide hole.
  • Set apples aside.
  • Heat and stir sugar, corn syrup and water in a saucepan until sugar has dissolved.
  • Boil until the syrup reaches 300 degrees on a candy thermometer.
  • Don�t go over 310 degrees or your candy burns and then you�ll be sad.
  • Remove from heat and stir in flavored oil and food coloring.
  • Dip one apple completely in the syrup and swirl it so that it becomes coated with the melted sugar candy.
  • Hold the apple above the saucepan to drain off excess. Place apple, with the stick facing up, onto a baking sheet that�s greased or lined with a silpat.
  • Repeat the process with the remaining apples.
  • If your syrup thickens or cools too much, simply reheat briefly before proceeding.
  • Let the apples cool completely before serving.
