  • 3/4 Cup light corn syrup
  • 1 Cup water

  • 12 red cinnamon candies
  1. Wash apples in hot water and dry. Insert a skewer in blossom end of each apple. In a saucepan mix sugar, corn syrup, and water.
  2. Cook over direct heat, stirring, until sugar dissolves. Add oil of cloves and a little coloring. Continue cooking, without stirring, until a small amount of mixture forms a hard piece that cracks when dropped into cold water (290 F. on a candy thermometer). Set pan over boiling water.
  3. Dip each apple into syrup, remove, and whirl apple until syrup covers it smoothly.
  4. Stand apples, skewer side up, on tray or plate to cool and harden.
