The Poisoned Apple

This is no ordinary apple. Its a magic wishing apple. One bite and all your dreams come true.
— Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs

It's candy apple season and in the spirit of a halloween I give you this devilish treat inspired by Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs. 


  • Wax paper
  • 2 cups sugar
  • 3/4 cup water
  • 1/2 cup light corn syrup
  • 1/2 teaspoon red food coloring
  • 1/2 teaspoon blue food coloring
  • 1/2 teaspoon green food coloring
  • 1/2 cup cinnamon candy
  • 6 medium apples, or 12 lady apples


Line a baking sheet with wax paper and set aside. In a medium heavy-bottomed saucepan, combine sugar, 3/4 cup water, corn syrup, cinnamon candy and red food coloring. Bring to a boil over high heat; reduce heat to medium-high. Insert candy thermometer and continue to boil until temperature reaches between 300 degrees and 310 degrees, about 20 minutes

Meanwhile, insert a wooden stick into the top of each apple, pushing about halfway through. When mixture reaches temperature, immediately remove from heat. Working quickly, dip 1 or 2 apples in sugar mixture until completely coated. Transfer to baking sheet; allow to cool. Mix in blue and green food coloring until black. Repeat with remaining apples.


Use your apples for home decor halloween night. Display them stacked on something spooky. In this case it was an ancient suitcase that Matty found in the attic of a woman's house. It was up for grabs at an estate sale in the area.
