Candied Apples

Yup, you read right…candied apples. The same hard coating without the artificial dyes and refined sugar, these apples will win you treats not tricks on Halloween.

Makes 6 servings

Ingredient List: 

6 Red delicious or Granny Smith apples, rinsed well, left whole
2 cups brown rice syrup
1 cup unsweetened raspberry preserves
Coarsely chopped macadamia nuts
6 popsicle sticks

Step By Step Instructions: 

Place apples on a tray top side down. Heat rice syrup and preserves in a deep sauce pan over medium-low heat for 15 minutes or until it adheres to the surface of a spoon.

Push a popsicle stick into each apple. Holding the apple by the stick, roll it around in the pan of rice syrup to coat the whole apple. Quickly dip in macadamia nuts and place on a sheet of waxed paper until it sets.

Cook’s Tip: You can use Suzanne’s Specialties Raspberry Rice Nectar in this recipe in place of the rice syrup and preserves to make an amazing red glaze for the apples.
