Candy Coated Apples
1/2 cup light corn syrup
3/4 cup water
2 cups sugar
1/2 teaspoon red food color
1 sheet pan lined with parchment paper
Combine the corn syrup, water, sugar and food color in a sauce pan and set over high heat. Cook to the hard crack stage (310 degrees) then remove from heat to cool slightly. While the sugar mixture cooks place a stick in each of the apples. Once the sugar mixture cools slightly coat each apple and place on the parchment lined pan to cool.
For even more interesting candy coated apples coat some in chopped nuts and some in colorful sprinkles.
