In case you haven’t noticed the pumpkin-errythang, it’s fall. And I’m all in. I love the boots, pumpkins, colors… but we’re keepin’ it old school here with candy apples.
We made these yesterday after our first attempt was a fail. So, I’ll just save you some trouble here. When you are boiling the liquid candy, it does not need to get all the way to 302 degrees per the package. I don’t see how that’s possible without burning it. So the second time around, when it started to smell like it was about to burn around 250 degrees, I shut the heat off and quickly dipped the apples. The came out perfect. I used the Concord Food kit and other than the temperature issue, it was super easy and they tasted great!
