Red Cinnamon Apples

By Paula Deen


Difficulty: Medium

Prep time: 5 minutes

Cook time: 15 minutes

Servings: 12


  • 1 dozen wood craft sticks
  • 1/2 cup corn syrup
  • 1 dozen small firm apples
  • 1 cup water
  • 1 teaspoon red food coloring
  • 2 cups sugar
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon flavoring


Boil water, syrup and sugar together until a brown caramel color is reached (at about 250 °F). Remove from the heat and add cinnamon and red coloring. Cool slightly. Meanwhile force a stick into the core of each apple. Dip the apples one at a time into the heavy red syrup, drain well, and place on a buttered baking sheet to cool.
