Purple Candy Apple Treat – Best Easy Halloween Dessert Food & Cheap Party Snack

  1. Combine the sugar, corn syrup, water, and food coloring (both the white and color you want the apples to be) in a heavy boiler (sauce pan). Turn on medium to high heat and let the mixture come to a boil.
  2. Be sure to have a candy thermometer inserted into the mixture but not touching the bottom!
  3. Let the candy come to 302Β°F (hard crack stage). This will take about 20 minutes. There’s no need to stir or disturb the mixture while it heats… just be patient!
  4. While that’s going on… make sure your apples are ready (washed, dried, and on the sticks!), then spray a cookie sheet with non-stick butter spray. The “butter” flavor isn’t necessary, but butter makes everything better, right? If you don’t have butter, just use regular non-stick cooking spray.
  5. When the candy reaches 302Β°, immediately remove it from the heat and use a rubber spatula to stir in the vanilla (or other flavor). Stir it gently to get the flavor evenly incorporated.
  6. You’ll want to work quickly because the candy will start to cool immediately. As soon as the flavor is evenly mixed in, begin dipping your apples.
  7. I like to tilt the pot to get them really well coated, then let the excess drip off for at least 10 seconds while spinning the apples.
  8. After they’re dipped, I set them on the buttered cookie sheet to harden. Be careful!!! This sugar is HOT and it will hurt you if you touch it!!
  9. It will only take a couple of minutes and the candy will be hard and ready to eat! They keep well at room temperature for 2-3 days but do not refrigerate… they will get super sticky!
