2 cups Light Corn Syrup
1 cup Granulated Sugar
1/2 cup Cinnamon Red Hot Candies
8 medium Red Delicious Apples, washed, skewered with
Chopped Walnuts or Pecans, optional
Combine the corn syrup, sugar and red hot candies in
a sauce pan
and bring the concoction to a boil over medium−high
constantly. Cook, covered for about 3 minutes to
allow steam to
dissolve crystals that may form on sides of pan.
Uncover and cook without stirring to the soft crack
290F degrees on a candy thermometer or until syrup
dropped in very
cold water separates into threads that are hard but
Allow the hot candy mixture to cool for 2 minutes,
then dip the
apples into the mixture to coat the surface of the
fruit. Allow any
excess candy coating to drip off from the apples
into the sauce pan.
Roll the candy coated apples in nuts, if desired.
Place the candied apples on foil or wax paper
squares to cool
