    2      C             granulated sugar
    2      C             corn syrup
      1/3  C             cinnamon candy
    1      C             water
      3/4  Tsp           cinnamon
      1/2  Tsp           vanilla
      1/4  Tsp           cloves
      3/4  Tsp           red food coloring
    6      Med           apples
 
 Remove stems from apples, wash, and pat dry.  Insert a wooden skewer
 in each apple, running through the apple from stem end to base without
 protruding all the way through the bottom end.  Combine sugar, corn
 syrup, cinnamon candies, and water in medium-sized saucepan.  Cook
 until candies dissolve, stirring constantly.  Be careful not to boil.
 Add cinnamon, vanilla, cloves, and food coloring.  Mix thoroughly.
 Boil mixture to 300 degrees using a candy thermometer without
 stirring.  While mixture is boiling, generously prepare a baking sheet
 with cooking spray so it’s ready ahead of time.  As soon as mixture
 reaches 300 degrees, remove it from heat and quickly dip each
 apple-one by one-into the mixture until it is thoroughly coated.  Set
 coated apples, standing on their bottoms with skewer pointing up, on
 baking sheet until mixture hardens.
  Let apples reach room temperature before eating.
