Cinnamon Cider Candied Apples
These cinnamon cider candied apples are perfect for your fall hayrides or Halloween party. Wash apples well to remove any waxy coating, and dry thoroughly before dipping them. Work quickly, but if the syrup begins to set before you are ready, you can reheat it over low heat so that it is easier to work with.
- non-stick cooking spray
- 1 3/4 cups apple cider
- 1/2 cup brandy
- 2/3 cup cinnamon-flavored candies
- 1 3/4 cups sugar

- 12 wooden craft sticks
- 12 Granny Smith apples washed and dried
