Candy Apples for Beginners

Thursday, November 26, 2009 Aimee Larsen 1 Comments


Check out these sweet, rich, royal, ruby beauties.  This is the first time I've ever done Candy Apples successfully because I did them by the instructions on the package.  Yes, I bought a pre-packaged candy apple kit, apples and added sugar.  It was like magic.  I didn't even need a candy thermometer.  I played around with the candy liquid as it was cooling and my candy apples were resting and cooling.  I started making these beautiful strings.

Some of the strings were made from drizzling the hot liquid into cold water in a small cup.  I dumped the water and candy out of the cup and sat them to dry before placing them on the tops of the candy apple.  The wrapped strings around the apple were made by touch a semi- cool bit of candy on a spoon to the already candied apple and turn the apple and going around and around with the spoon.

This was easy and beautiful and I'm having trouble keeping "Hands Off".  These kiddos aren't going to wait long for these.  I just wanted to admire them for a little while.
