Candy Apples

after

 

Everybody loves their candy apples. Some love the classic cinnamon and some like to modernize with flavors that range from Green Apple Jolly Ranchers to Butterscotch. My family likes to stick to the simply classic cinnamon candy apple.

Ingredients:
1 1/2 C Pure Granulated Sugar
3/4 C Light Corn Syrup
1/8 C water
Candy (Personal Preference)
4 Fuji Apples
4 popsicle sticks

How To: 
Combine Sugar, Corn Syrup,water, and candy and heat on Med/low. Heat the mixture slowly to prevent scortching the sugar.
Stir continuoulsy until the mixture is completely dissolved( Will turn clear) 
Clean the Fuji apples with soap and water to remove the waxy film and stick popsicle sticks in the top

Candy apples are extremly difficult to eat once completely hardened. It is definitley an art that I have yet to master. Till next time!!
