Candied Apples

Growing up in Singapore, i have never seen had candied apples before. In fact, i have never even laid eyes on a candied apple. All i know is that i have a fridge full of Fuji Apples, and they are being eaten at a rate slower than than they are at going bad.

So in my mind, i was hoping a lil bit of caramel might trick people into eating these apples a bit faster. :p

Okay, so while an apple a day keeps the doctors away, these will definitely round up the dentists. I dont think any dentists in their right minds would recommend eating chewy, sticky, gooey, rich, milky, sweet, delicious caramel. Sure, they stick all over your teeth, but then again, it’s not as if you can’t brush your teeth after?

And anyways, apples! They are fruits! and so what’s a lil caramel when you know you are eating something so rich in vitamins, anti-oxidants and fibers in exchange?

So there!

Recipe from Martha Stewart

Classic Caramel Apples

Makes 6

  • 6 wooden craft sticks
  • 6 small apples, any variety, stems removed
  • 1 cup heavy cream
  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/4 cup dark corn syrup
  • 2 tablespoons unsalted butter


  1. Insert sticks into tops of apples. Prepare an ice-water bath.
  2. Bring cream, sugar, corn syrup, and butter to a boil in a saucepan over medium-high heat. Clip a candy thermometer to pan, and continue to cook until mixture reaches 245 degrees, 10 to 12 minutes.
  3. Place pan in ice-water bath to stop the cooking. Dip bottom of each apple in caramel. Using a spoon, coat apple halfway to three-quarters of the way up sides. Transfer to a parchment-lined baking sheet, and refrigerate until set, about 15 minutes (or overnight).

    These look delicious. I am very tempted to try these, and I just happen to have some cream already. Thanks for the yummy idea.

    I don’t think I’ve ever seen candied apples look so delicate and pretty. These look delicious and not too much of a hit to the diet either ;p.
