1Mix 1st 3 ingredients in saucepan.
2Put on high heat with candy thermometer positioned in center of fluid level.
3While it is boiling, thoroughly wash and dry your apples, and spear with the sticks.
4Boil mixture until reaches hard crack (300ºF), then immediately add red food coloring and stir.
5Quickly dip the apples, twisting to cover, and set on a greased cookie sheet.
You may want to use a deep, narrow pan, and tilt it to cover the apples well.
You should not make the coating too thick as it will be hard to bite through to the apple.
A reviewer suggested that you could also make the coating orange, and reserve some to tint black. The drizzle the black over the up-turned apples!
The same reviewer said she covered 12 medium apple.
