What is a candy apple?
-Candy apples are a fun treat consisting of gooey or firm candy coating. The candy coating is normally comprised of a red sugar syrup often cinnamon flavored. Once the sugar syrup recipe has been created you take a select apple of your choice, skewer it, then coat the apple with the coating. In some instances these apples are rolled in nuts or candy confections. The candy apple is the sister to the delicious gourmet caramel apple. It has been known that these types of apples are eaten on Halloween because the holiday comes in the wake of the annual apple harvest.
