Hot Candy Apples

These Hot Candy Apples make a fiery fall treat!

What You'll Need:

1-1/2 cups sugar


1/2 cup corn syrup

1/2 cup hot cinnamon candies

3/4 cup water

1/4 teaspoon salt

1 teaspoon red food coloring

1 teaspoon cinnamon

1 teaspoon ginger

6 wooden skewers

6 tart apples

Measuring cups and spoons


Baking pan

Waxed paper



You'll need adult help to make this sweet and hot apple treat. First, mix sugar, syrup, cinnamon candies, water, and salt in a saucepan. Stir the mixture over medium heat constantly so it doesn't burn and bring it to a boil.

After the mix boils, stop stirring and check to see if the syrup forms a solid ball when a bit is dropped into cold water.

Remove the saucepan from the stove, and carefully place the saucepan in a pan of very hot water. Add the food coloring and dry spices, and stir.

Stick a skewer into the bottom of each apple. Swirl each apple one by one into the syrup until it is entirely covered. Let the apples harden on waxed paper. Serve these at an Oktoberfest gathering with plenty of ice cold apple cider.
