Candy Apples

2 cups cinnamon red hot candies
2 tablespoons water
12 Granny Smith or Red Delicious apples

Insert craft sticks into apples. Line a baking sheet with waxed paper.

Melt candies and water in a saucepan over medium heat to about 300 degrees until a small amount of syrup dropped into cold water forms hard ball. Remove from heat and set aside for few minutes to cool slightly, then dip apples in hot liquid and place on wax paper to cool. Be innovative with the apples, using caramels, bitter-sweet chocolate pieces, crushed nuts...have fun!
