    Candy apples, also known as toffee apples, are covered in a bright shiny syrupy coating that hardens to a sticky candy crunch…yumza!

    From Darla at Bakingdom
    light corn syrup
    flavoring oil or extract of your choice*
    food coloring (optional)

    *A note on the difference between flavoring oil and extracts. Flavoring oil is a much more concentrated ingredient, so you need much less. Also, since it is oil based, it is easier to use in candy making because it doesn’t cause any spluttering when added to the hot candy. Extracts, however, are cheaper and are usually easier to find. You need more, and it’s a little more dangerous, but there is a wide variety of choices at any grocery store. ~ Darla

    Tips: Try the bit-sized version!
    Cut the apples into 1-inch cubes.
    Coat apple cubes in lemon juice (it will keep them from turning brown) and allow them to dry a bit.
    Instead of the craft sticks use thicker, longer toothpicks. Follow the remainder of the directions.

    If you can jab a stick or a skewer in it, you can candy it up for Halloween. Apples for candied shrunken heads, pears for candied green goblins, baby carrots for candied witches’ fingers, dried figs for candied brains. 😉
    What would you candy up? Which are better…candy apples or caramel apples?

    Happy Halloween! 🙂
