Poison Candy Apples

It’s no wonder Snow White couldn’t resist these beauties. This one won’t leave you asleep on the kitchen floor though!🖤 Candy apples are easy to make and you can make them any colour you wish. Here is a sweet and easy recipe for you!


6 Apples

6 Wooden skewers

1/2 Cup corn syrup

2 Cups sugar

3/4 Cup water

Gel food colouring (I used black)

Wash 6 apples really well to remove wax.

Dry & stick the skewers in the top.

In a medium pot, gently heat 1/2 cup corn syrup, 2 cups sugar and 3/4 cups water.

Stir gently and keep heating until it reaches 150C or 310F.

This will take about 20 minutes.

Once it reaches the hard crack stage, add 1 tsp black gel food colouring.

Dip apples in and leave to set.
