Step 1: Wash and skewer apples Wash the apples with warm, soapy water, remove the stems, and then plunge the skewer about two inches into the top of each apple. Set aside. Tip Choose smaller apples that are tart such as the Granny Smith or Tiger variety. Step 2: Combine water, sugar, and corn syrup Combine the water, sugar, and corn syrup in a small saucepan over medium heat and stir to the consistency of wet sand. Step 3: Monitor temperature Use your candy thermometer to bring the sugar mixture to a temperature of 283 degrees, or "soft crack stage." Tip For a more brittle candy shell, continue heating the sugar mixture to between 300 and 310 degrees. Step 4: Remove sugar mixture from heat Remove the sugar mixture from the heat and allow it to rest for three minutes. Tip Swirl in the red food coloring -- or any color of your choice. Step 5: Dip apples Tilt the pan to dip each apple at a 45-degree angle and swirl to coat it. Transfer it to the cooling rack immediately. Step 6: Sprinkle on candy Sprinkle on your favorite crushed candy while the coating is still tacky for an extra special treat. Once cooled, enjoy them right away or save them for later. Did You Know?
