* 2 C granulated sugar
* 2 C corn syrup
* 1/3 C cinnamon candy
* 1 C water
* 3/4 Tsp cinnamon
* 1/2 Tsp vanilla
* 1/4 Tsp cloves
* 3/4 Tsp red food coloring

# Remove stems from apples, wash, and pat dry.
# Insert a wooden skewer in each apple, running through the apple from stem end to base without protruding all the way through the bottom end.
# Combine sugar, corn syrup, cinnamon candies, and water in medium-sized saucepan.
# Cook until candies dissolve, stirring constantly. Be careful not to boil.
# Add cinnamon, vanilla, cloves, and food coloring. Mix thoroughly.
# Boil mixture to 300 degrees using a candy thermometer without stirring.
# While mixture is boiling, generously prepare a baking sheet with cooking spray so it's ready ahead of time.
# As soon as mixture reaches 300 degrees, remove it from heat and quickly dip each apple-one by one-into the mixture until it is thoroughly coated.
# Set coated apples, standing on their bottoms with skewer pointing up, on baking sheet until mixture hardens.
# Let apples reach room temperature before eating.
