Candied Apples

Yield 10 servings


  • 10 medium apples
  • 10 wooden skewers or sticks
  • 6 cups sugar
  • 1 1/2 cups water
  • 1 cup light corn syrup
  • 2 teaspoons cinnamon extract
  • 1/4 teaspoon red food coloring

How to Make It

  1. Wash and dry apples; remove stems. Insert wooden skewers into stem end of each apple. Set aside at room temperature.

  2. Combine sugar, water, syrup, and cinnamon extract in a heavy saucepan; stir well. Bring to a boil; cover and cook 3 minutes. Uncover and continue cooking, without stirring, until mixture reaches soft crack stage (290°). Add food coloring, mixing well.

  3. Transfer syrup to top of a double boiler. Place over boiling water, and quickly dip apples in syrup; allow excess to drip off. Place apples on lightly greased baking sheets to cool. To store, wrap tightly in plastic wrap.
