*2 cups granulated sugar
*3/4 cup water
*1/2 cup light corn syrup
*6 medium to small apples of your choice (I use macintosh)
*6 popsicle sticks
*2-5 drops red food coloring (optional)
~Spread butter on a sheet of parchment paper.
~Bring a medium bowl of very hot water (not boiling).
~Remove stems from apples.
j~Insert popsicle sticks into apples.~In a medium heavy saucepan, mix sugar, water, corn syrup & food coloring.
~Bring to a boil over hight heat.
~Once mixture starts to boil, turn heat down to medium-high heat.
~Continue to boil until mixture comes to the hard crack stage (between 300-310 degrees).
~Quickly and carefully dip apples into sugar mixture until completely covered.
~Set on butter parchment paper.
~Set until completely cooled.
`put 1 cup of red hot candies into the mixture to melt. This give it a slight taste of cinnamon and you won't need the food coloring.
