The leaves have turned, the days are shorter, the nights are cooler, and soon it will be Halloween! Are you planning a party? Well, nothing goes with a Halloween party, or without a Halloween party for that matter, like candy apples. Sweet, ripe, delicious apples with a thick cinnamon flavored candy coating, on a stick!
Amoretti cinnamon oil extract is perfect for making your candy apples special, and perhaps the most sought after candy apples in the neighborhood.
Cinnamon Candy Apples
Wash and dry the apples and remove the stems. Line a cookie sheet with parchment or waxed paper and spray with non-stick cooking spray. Insert bamboo skewers or wooden craft sticks into stem end of apples.
In a medium saucepan over medium-high, combine sugar, corn syrup and water. Heat to 300°F to 310°F (149°C to 154°C) on a candy thermometer, or until a small amount of syrup dropped into cold water forms hard, brittle threads. Remove from heat and stir in food coloring and Amoretti cinnamon oil extract.
Holding each apple by its stick, dip into the syrup, lift above syrup and turn to coat evenly. Place on prepared cookie sheet to harden. If syrup starts to harden in the sauce pan before you finish coating the apples, reheat briefly.
Allow apples to cool to room temperature. Candy apples are best enjoyed within 24 hours.
