Learn How to Make Cinnamon Candy Apples with this easy step by step recipe. Prepare a fun Halloween candy recipe for a party, or make these after Halloween has passed for a way to use up some leftover candy. No matter your reason for making these easy candy apples, you're sure to have no problem gobbling them up! Make sure you are cautious if you have little kids because this candy mixture gets quite hard and sticky when it hardens to the apple. We advise against letting kids with loose teeth or braces try to bite into one of these. Caramel apples tend to be a little softer to bite into, so for another version of this delicious Halloween treat, try this recipe for Perfect Caramel Apples.

Ingredients

  • 2 cups sugar
  • 3/4 cup water
  • 1/2 cup light corn syrup
  • 1/2 cup cinnamon candies
  • 2 teaspoons red food coloring
  • 6 green apples

Instructions

  1. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper; spray parchment well with cooking spray. Set aside. 

  2. In a heavy-bottomed dutch oven, combine sugar, water, corn syrup, cinnamon candies and food coloring. 

  3. Bring to a boil over high heat.  Reduce heat to medium-high to maintain a boil.

  4. Insert candy thermometer and continue boiling until temperature reaches 310 degrees F.  This is a "hard crack" stage.

  5. Meanwhile, remove stems from apples and insert a wooden stick into the top of each apple. Set aside. 

  6. When mixture is ready, immediately remove from heat and allow bubbles to settle. Holding stick firmly, quickly dip apples in hot sugar mixture. Raise from the dip and allow some of the sugar to drip off.  Place on prepared baking sheet; allow to cool.

How To Make Cinnamon Candy Apples is just the instructions I needed during this apple picking season. This recipe is so simple and straightforward, and the results are a great apple treat that I haven't had since I was a little girl. I was so happy to find this recipe not only to use up some of these apples, but to introduce the little ones to this delightful treat.

Thank you so much for the video. Can this be any easier? I love candy apples and I will grab a couple when they are in the produce of the local grocery store but I have never made them from scratch. I like that the chef used cinnamon candy instead of the box mix you find in the store.

I can not tell you how many times this recipe has failed when I prepared it. So I never leave the local fair without buying one and on occasion, I have seen them in the local market. Putting on my big girl pants and gonna try it one more time.

Omg, I haven't had cinnamon apples since I was a kid! Never would I have imagined how simple it is to make them and now that it's almost Fall and I've stumbled upon this recipe I'll definitely be doing just that. Is there a special way to store these yummy treats and do you have any idea how long before they're no longer edible?
