Does anyone know how to make the candy apple's like at the carnival?
Do they make the candy part home-made or is it premade stuff they dip the apples into?

2 c. sugar
1 c. water
1/4 tsp. cream of tartar
Red food coloring
Skewers or popsicle sticks
Mix all ingredients in saucepan. Put on high heat with candy thermometer positioned in center of fluid level. While it is boiling, wash and dry your apples and spear with the sticks. Boil mixture until reaches hard crack (300 degrees), then immediately add red food coloring and stir, then immediately dip the apples and set on a greased cookie sheet. Each batch candies approximately 1 dozen medium apples.

Also try adding those red cinnamon heart candies to the mix for an extra yummy kick.
