    8                    apples
    8                    popsicle sticks
    3      c             granulated sugar
    1      c             water
      1/2  c             corn syrup
      1/4  c             red hot candies
      1/2  tsp           red food coloring
 
 Insert a popsicle stick part way through stem end of apples.  Prepare a baking
 sheet with cooking spray and set aside.  In a saucepan over medium heat, combine
 sugar, water, corn syrup, candies, and food coloring.  Boil without stirring
 until candy thermometer reaches 290, about 20 minutes.  With brush dipped in
 water, brush sugar from sides of pan.  Remove mixture from heat, dip pot bottom
 briefly in cold water to arrest cooking.  Tip saucepan, swirl each apple in
 mixture to coat.  Place apples on prepared baking sheet to cool.  Work quickly
 before mixture hardens.
