Please note that cinnamon oil is not an essential ingredient, it's up to you whether you use it or not. If you do use it, the 1/2 tsp of cinnamon oil is a maximum amount that you will want to use. This is cinnamon oil, not just cinnamon flavoring.

Older children will enjoy helping with these, but be careful, the candy mixture is very hot!

These apples are just like the ones you had at a carnival as a kid. The hard candy coating is sweet with a slight cinnamon flavor. Super easy to make, these would be great to have at a kids party or for Halloween. We loved these with a crisp red apple, but have fun experimenting with different types of apples.

Tip: Use a candy thermometer to make sure you've cooked the coating to the hard crack stage. The Test Kitchen
