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.
