8 medium apples
8 wooden sticks
2 1/3 cups sugar
1 cup light corn syrup
1 cup water
1/2 teaspoon red food coloring

Grease a large baking sheet. Wash and dry apples; insert a wooden stick into the stem end of each apple. In a medium saucepan, combine sugar, syrup, water, and food coloring. Cook over medium-low heat until sugar dissolves, 5 to 7 minutes, stirring frequently. Insert a candy thermometer into the liquid. Increase heat to high and bring to a boil. Reduce heat to medium-high; boil until candy thermometer reaches 300 degrees F, about 20 minutes, without stirring. Remove from heat. Tip saucepan and swirl each apple in mixture to coat evenly. (Work quickly before syrup hardens.) Place on prepared baking sheet. Cool 1 hour before serving. Makes 8 candy apples.
