Poison Candied Apples

Warning!!!!! I love the look of these.  I call these my poisoned apples.  These are true candied apples.  I’m talking hard tack candy.  These are so simple to make.  Here’s a link to the recipe I used.  Enjoy!  https://simply-delicious-food.com/poison-toffee-apples-halloween/?utm_source=feedburner&utm_medium=email&utm_campaign=Feed:+simply-delicious+(Simply+Delicious)

  • 2 cups granulated sugar
  • 3/4 cup water
  • 1/2 cup light corn syrup
  • few drops black gel food coloring (could also use purple)
  • 6 Granny Smith apples or 12 small apples
  • sticks to insert into apples
  1. Grease a cookie sheet and set aside. Insert sticks into washed and DRIED apples and set aside.

  2. In a medium pan, combine the sugar, water, corn syrup and food coloring. Cook over medium heat until sugar has dissolved. Then, to prevent crystallization, use a pastry brush dipped in water to brush around inside sides of pan just above mixture.

  3. Turn heat up a bit until mixture begins to boil. Stir to prevent burning. Boil until mixture reaches hard crack stage (310 degrees F on candy thermometer).

  4. Carefully dip the apples into the hot candy mixture and place on the greased baking sheet. Cool completely.

  5. Remember…..these are candied apples and not the chewy caramel kind. Enjoy!
