Cupid's Apples

Okay so Candace seriously bought close to 5lbs of red hots. 

Let's just "say" it was her medication doing the talking......

So what do you do with that many red hots?
We attempted to make candied red apples of course!
There's lots of great recipes on the Internet so we tried 2 of them.
One was so hard we thought our teeth would crack off with one bite.
The other made us think our fillings would be left behind.
Yummy right?
Well they sure look pretty in the picture.
My daughter thought they were straight from the Evil Queen from Snow White.
We thought we'd entice the boys by shooting arrows through them
as if that would be cool to a boy as long as it's not "Cupid's" arrow.
Not cool Mom....
Do you have a successful perfect red candy apple recipe
like the kind at the fair that melts in your mouth?
Please let us know, we're too young for dentures...

I've always liked the candied apple recipe from the plaid better homes and garden cookbook...my neighbor used to make these every year growing up for Halloween and they were delish!

Oh my I love these! I used to look forward to these every year as a kid when we went to the Covered Bridge Festival in IN. (Parke County). They can be hot, hot and jawbreakers too, but oh so delish! Thanks for the memories. Off to buy red hots! lol
