Apple Uglies

Apple Uglies


8 red apples, sticks inserted
2 cups sugar
1 cup KARO light corn syrup
1/2 cup water
1/2 cup red cinnamon candies
10 drops red food coloring


In a 2-quart saucepan mix sugar, KARO and water. Boil, stirring constantly to 250-degrees or until drops of syrup form hard, yet plastic balls in cold water. Add candies and cook to 285-degrees or until drips of syrup separate into hard but not brittle threads in cold water. Remove, stir in food coloring. Twirl apple in syrup. Remove, let excess drip off then twirl. Cool on greased baking sheet.

To decorate: Dip licorice, small candies, marshmallows and gum in KARO and apply immediately or later. Or, thinly spread KARO on apple and sprinkle with coconut, cereal, or decorative sugar.
