I know this recipe is a little more fall-ish than anything but since fair food season is just around the corner, I thought I would share this recipe with you. We tried this recipe last fall. It was a big hit but had everyone running for water when they were done with their apple! It's a little caliente, but totally worth it!
2 bags of Brach's cinnamon red hots
1/2 c. water
12 medium sized apples (we used golden delicious)
12 popsicle sticks or skewers
Mix the red hots and water in a saucepan over medium high heat. Mix constantly to prevent burning the candy. Mix until all the red hots are melted and remove from heat. Let it sit for a minute or so to let it cool a bit. While the candy is cooling put the apples on the sticks and spray a baking sheet with cooking spray (they'll stick to wax paper). **Tilt the saucepan and dip the apples in the candy while spinning to coat the apples. Let them cool for a few minutes and enjoy!! The candy coating is nice and chewy but spicy hot! It sure clears the nasal passages!!
** If you are called away from your apples for a bit and the candy in the pan has gotten too thick to put on your apple you can add a smidge of water and then put the pot back on the stove and mix to thin the candy a bit.
