A fun and spooky way to dress up apples for Halloween!
- 2 cups sugar
- 1/2 cup corn syrup
- 3/4 cup water
- 1/2 tsp blue gel food coloring
- 12 small/medium apples
- 12 wooden skewers or twigs
- parchment papper
- vegetable oil
Wash and dry apples. Remove the stems. Insert wooden skewers (we used twigs) into the center of each apple.
In a sauce pan over medium heat add sugar, corn syrup, water and food coloring. Mix ingredients well, until sugar is dissolved. Bring to a boil. Do not stir past this point. *Pay attention to avoid burning it, because the blue coloring will prevent you from seeing the caramel color.
Meanwhile place the parchment paper on a baking sheet and grease it with a little bit of vegetable oil.
After 15 to 20 minutes the caramel will be ready. To check, drizzle some of it from a fork - if it hardens when falling, forming strands, it's done.
Turn the heat off and dip the apples, one by one, on the caramel, turning so they get an even coating. Let excess caramel drip off and place the apples on the prepared paper to cool.
Do this carefully as the caramel will be super hot.
*If you want darker apples, you can add some black food coloring. If the caramel hardens before you have finished coating the apples, turn on the heat for a while, until it has the right texture again.
*Leftover caramel can be poured over slightly greased parchment or waxed paper and after cooled, they can be broken into pieces, like glass.
