Black Poison Candy Apples DIY

Christmas is over, but it's still the season for sweets, if there's ever actually a time that it isn't. I've long wanted to have a go at making black candy apples. I don't recall ever making ordinary candy apples, so this was a bit of an experiment. I'm not sure it went all that well :p
No doubt you can do a better job! But it was fun and I do feel inspired to try other kinds of candy apples in future. So, I wouldn't exactly call this a recipe, but here are the ingredients and method I used this time around...

Ingredients:
3 cups sugar
1/2 cup corn syrup (I used caramel sugar syrup)
3/4 cup water
Apples
Black gel food dye

The plastic straws I used are the ones that normally come with these completely awesome skull drinking glasses. I found this amount probably enough to coat 6 apples.

Method: 
1. Wash and dry your apples, and remove the stems. Stick the straws or sticks firmly into the dimple.

2. Combine all ingredients into a pot, heat on medium high until boiling.
3. Let boil, stirring intermittently, for 20 minutes. If you have a candy thermometer, your liquid candy should reach 300˚F, the "hard crack stage".
4. Remove the pot from heat, and let it cool slightly. Roll the apples in the liquid candy, and place onto a sheet of non-stick baking paper. 
5. I would suggest perhaps refrigerating them afterwards to help them set and stay hard.

  7. The request platforms need to be mailed separately because they need to be intimated properly on the nature of the work. This process of searching for educational and governmental backlinks need to be replicated across multiple platforms. billig brus på nett
