  • Yields

    6 candy apples

  • Ease of preparation

    Medium

Ingredients

  • 6 Granny Smith apples, cleaned and dried
  • 1 cup (240 ml) water
  • 3 cups (720 ml) sugar
  • ½ cup (120 ml) light corn syrup
  • Black gel food colouring
  • Blue gel food colouring
  • Silver edible dust, to decorate
  • White gel food colouring

Special equipment

  • 6 lollipop sticks
  • Candy thermometer

Directions

  1. Remove stems and insert lollipop stick through the top of the apple core, ensuring a firm handle.
  2. Cover a baking sheet with parchment paper and lightly coat with cooking spray.
  3. Slide a candy thermometer onto the side of a heavy-bottomed saucepan. Add water, sugar, and light corn syrup to the saucepan and cook over high heat until the mixture reaches 300 F (150 C) (hard-ball stage).
  4. Remove saucepan from heat. Add black and blue food colouring and stir in. Add silver edible dust and stir. Add a few drops of white gel food colouring (do not stir to combine at this point).
  5. Hold the pot of liquid on an angle and carefully, with a firm grip on the handle, put in an apple and swirl to ensure a full coating of candy. Hold for a few seconds, upside down, to allow excess candy to drip back into the pot.
  6. Place coated apple, handle side up, on a parchment covered baking sheet.
  7. Repeat for all apples.
  8. Allow apples to set for a few minutes before dusting with more edible glitter dust.
