8 Granny Smith apples
1 1/2 cups packed dark brown sugar
1/3 cup water
1/3 cup dark corn syrup or molasses

Wash and dry apples; remove stems. Insert wooden sticks into the stem end of each apple; set aside.

Line a baking sheet with foil.

Combine sugar and remaining ingredients in a medium saucepan. Bring to a boil over medium heat; cover and cook 3 minutes. Uncover and continue cooking, without stirring, until mixture reaches 280° (about 8 minutes).

Remove from heat. Quickly dip apples in sugar mixture; allow excess to drip off. Place apples, stick sides up, on prepared pan; cool completely.
