If you’re looking to make a candy treat, you might want to try a classic that many people enjoy. It’s the taffy apples and you can learn how to make them below.
The ingredients needed to make taffy apples are two cups of sugar, one cup of cream, one cup of brown sugar, two thirds of a cup of butter, one teaspoon of salt, two thirds of a cup of corn syrup, a bag of apples, two teaspoons of vanilla, a candy thermometer, some popsicle sticks, chopped nuts and wax paper.
The first step would be to wash the apples, dry them, and stick the popsicle sticks in their top. All the ingredients should be added in a big saucepan, then put on a medium fire, while stirring constantly.
Use the thermometer to check the mixture, until it gets to a temperature of 246 degrees Fahrenheit. Then take the mixture and let it become thicker.
As the mixture becomes thicker, you should remain patient. If you’re not patient, the mixture might drip from the apples. Every couple of minutes, check the mixture, until you realize that it has the right resistance. It is OK when the mixture clings from spoon, instead of running.
Finally, dip the apples in the mixture you just made, then leave them on wax paper so they can cool down. Enjoy your taffy apples.
