They ’ re fun, easy and surely gay. And….I must mention….a little tough to eat. While the kids like to lick away like a colossus lollipop because, honestly, it ’ s about impossible to bite into one, I like to cut them up and snack on them that way. A much better way to preserve your teeth .

PRO TIPS

All you need are a few tips for making your easy Homemade Candy Apple Recipe :

  • Be sure to boil your sugar mixture until the HARD CRACK stage. If you pull it off the heat too soon, the sugar will be too soft…more like taffy. Making them even more impossible to eat.
  • When you add the food coloring (and you can color your apples black, purple, fuscia…it’s up to you), be careful because the sugar will bubble a bit more angrily.
  • If your apples are not freshly picked and purchased at a grocery store, give them a quick dunk in boiling water for 1-2 seconds to melt off any wax that may be on the apples. The wax keeps the sugar from adhering to the apple.
  • Now….dip away….carefully. The sugar is VERY hot. And don’t forget to coat that parchment with cooking spray.

And if you ’ ra not very feeling like dipping and sticking….you could wholly throw together a bad platter of these Caramel Apple Nachos!
