Classic red candy apples for Halloween

Scorrere verso il basso

Perfect for Halloween these classic red candy apples will delight children and adults with a sweet tooth. Very sweet, very red and very delicious. The sweetness of the caramel goes perfectly with the sour taste of Granny Smith apples (I strongly recommend to use them for this recipe). The recipe requires a thermometer to measure the temperature of the sugarl but I know that many of you are able to create these apples simply thanks to your instinct (see notes). Be careful for your teeth! This sweet caramel is hard and crunchy. 😉 Trick or treat!
