These “Poison” Candied Apples are a nice twist to traditional candied apples that will get your little ghouls excited on Halloween!
12 organic baby green apples
12 wooden candy apple sticks or dowels
1/3 cup sugar
1/2 cup light corn syrup
1 tsp. black gel paste food coloring
Wash and dry organic green apples thoroughly. Place on a baking sheet and poke firmly with dowels.
Line another baking sheet with buttered parchment paper, and put aside.
Place a candy thermometer in a medium saucepan and add sugar, 3/4 cups water, and corn syrup. Place over medium heat; whisk until sugar is dissolved.
Let the temperature rise without stirring until it reaches 310 degrees F. Remove pan from heat. Carefully remove thermometer, and add food coloring.
Swirl pan to mix in the color completely. Swipe and twirl the apple through the candy, shake off excess, and place on buttered baking sheet. Repeat with remaining apples.
