maybe it was beginners luck.....?
prior to making candied apples i had looked at numerous recipes that mentioned it takes practice to get a good bubble free coat. well i got lucky....this was my first attempt at candied anything other than homemade mints.
jason made this recipe seem like a piece of cake so i gave it a try.
i changed a few things to it. i wanted to make them a bright color so the only variations to his recipe are the following:
i substituted water for juice and omitted the cinnamon. i added one tablespoon of vanilla, two tablespoons of white food coloring and 2 tablespoons of blue food coloring after removing the sugar from the heat.
we had some peanut m&m's as well as some sprinkles so a few got to stay plain while the others got dressed up a bit. mr. B invited his neighborhood buddies over and they all approved! daisy mae even got a sample when B dropped his in the grass.
'hey i think i can see my reflection in them thangs!'
