I’m going home to make candied apples tonight (or maybe tomorrow night). I’ve never made them and I can’t remember the last time I had them. Of course, in my world, that’s all part of the appeal. I’m not sure how my interest in this came about. But now I’m committed.
My recipe, from allrecipes.com, seems pretty simple. Just wondering if anyone has any advice before I proceed. Or if you just want to wish me luck.
1 2/3 cups cinnamon red hot candies
2 tablespoons water
Insert craft sticks into apples. Line a baking sheet with waxed paper.
In a heavy-bottomed saucepan over medium-high heat, pour candies and water. Occasionally brushing down sides of pan with a heat-resistant pastry brush, heat candy to 300 to 310 degrees, or until a small amount of syrup dropped into cold water forms hard, brittle threads. Remove from heat and let cool slightly.
Dip apples in hot liquid and place on waxed paper to harden.
