Candy Apple help needed.........
I have volunteered to make candy apples for a neighborhood Halloween function. The majority of attendees will be small children (less than 10 years old). I have looked high and low but can not find small apples this year. Has anyone here used cut apples for candied apples?? I am making the red hard candy apples not caramel apples. I know the apples must be de-waxed and dry for the candy to stick.
If I cut the apples in quarters the day before and let them dry in the fridge overnight - will this make them dry enough to allow the candy to stick and not ruin the candy solution? Any and all suggestions are welcome.
