Cinnamon Candy Apples

Cinnamon Candy Apples


  • 5-6 apples- washed & sticks inserted
  • 2 cups granulated sugar
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 2/3 cup white corn syrup
  • 10-15 drops red food color
  • 1 tsp cinnamon candy flavoring


  • Line baking sheet or jelly roll pan with parchment or Silpat. Set aside.
  • Combine water, granulated sugar & corn syrup in 2qt saucepan.
  • Bring to a boil stirring constantly.
  • Continue to boil until you reach 300 degrees- hard crack temp.
  • Remove from heat & quickly * carefully add in your food coloring & candy flavor being cautious to not breath in the steam. Stir.
  • Immediately start dipping & rolling your apples in the liquid candy. You may need to tilt the pan to cover the apples depending on their size.
  • I did one coat & then placed on parchment. Once they were all coated I drizzled out the remaining candy in the pan over the top of the apples to give an extra coat.
  • Sprinkle with any decorations desired at this time.
  • Allow to sit at room temperature to harden
  • Store in an airtight container or wrap with plastic wrap.
