Candied Apples

Updated on August 22, 2016
5 stars from 2 ratings of Candied Apples

Similar to a caramel apple, candied apples are am old fashioned treat of apples with a sweet glaze over them opposed to being dipped in caramel or chocolate. Start with nice juicy apples to create the perfect candied apple.

You can make these without a candy thermometer but if you have one I recommend using it. You'll need to be a little careful when glazing the apples to make sure it doesn't harden too fast. Candied apples are a bit hard to come by nowadays but you can make them in your kitchen at home no problem.

Do you prefer caramel apples or candied apples? I'm not sure what I like best . . .

Instructions

  1. Wash and dry apples.
  2. Remove stems from apples and insert skewers where the stems used to be.
