      Default MYO: Halloween Candied Apples

      2 Cup granulated sugar
      2 Cup corn syrup
      1/3 Cup cinnamon candy
      1 Cup water
      3/4 Tsp. cinnamon 1/2 Tsp. vanilla
      1/4 Tsp. cloves
      3/4 Tsp. red food coloring
      6 Med apples

      Remove stems from apples (I happen to like Macintosh apples), wash, and pat dry. Insert a wooden skewer in each apple, running through the apple from stem end to base without protruding all the way through the bottom end. Combine sugar, corn syrup, cinnamon candies, and water in medium-sized saucepan. Cook until the candies dissolve, stirring constantly. Be careful not to boil. Add cinnamon, vanilla, cloves, and food coloring. Mix thoroughly. Boil mixture to 300 degrees using a candy thermometer without stirring.

      While mixture is boiling, generously prepare a baking sheet with cooking spray so it's ready ahead of time. As soon as mixture reaches 300 degrees, remove it from heat and quickly dip each apple-one one-into the mixture until it is thoroughly coated. Set coated apples, standing on their bottoms with skewer pointing up, on baking sheet until mixture hardens. Let apples reach room temperature before eating.

      Yeah, This is my life now!

      I tried this today, even without a candy thermometer, apple #1 came out great!!! so did the next 2. However I made one fatal mistake, as I was dipping I left the pot on my electric range. So the next 3 apples came out darker..in fact it was as dark as a caramel apple. So to the trash they went and a LOT of air freshener was sprayed. Life lesson, take the pot off the stove!
