Cooks Corner Recipe: Candied Apples

123403176077Cc3M

Yield: 8 servings (serving size: 1 apple)

Ingredients

  • Cooking spray
  • 8  (4-ounce) Red Delicious apples, stemmed
  • 1  cup  sugar
  • 1/3  cup  light-colored corn syrup
  • 1/3  cup  water
  • 1/3  cup  cinnamon decorator candies (such as Red Hots)

Preparation

Line a large baking sheet with foil, and coat with cooking spray. Insert 1 (6-inch) white dowel into stem end of each apple.

Combine sugar, corn syrup, water, and candies in a small heavy saucepan over medium heat. Cook until sugar dissolves, stirring occasionally. Cook, without stirring, until a candy thermometer registers 300° (about 8 minutes). Remove from heat.

Working with 1 apple at a time, holding apple by its dowel, dip in syrup, tilting pan to cover apple. Turn apple quickly to coat evenly with syrup; let excess syrup drip back into pan. Place apple, dowel side up, on prepared baking sheet to harden (about 5 minutes).
