Step1-Wash and dry apples; remove stems and insert sticks into stem end of apple.
Step2-Mix sugar, corn syrup, and water in heavy saucepan, cool over medium heat, stirring constantly until mixture boils and sugar is dissolved.
Step3-Then cook, without stirring, until temperature reaches 200 degrees, or until small amount of syrup dropped into very cold water forms a ball that is hard enough to hold its shape, but still pliable.
Step4-Add cinnamon candies and continue cooking to 250 degrees farenhite or until small amount dropped into cold water separates into threads which are very hard, but not brittle.
Step5-Remove from heat. Stir in red food coloring if desired.
Step6-Hold each apple by the stick and quickly twirl in the syrup, tilting pan to cover all the apple. Remove and allow excess to drip off, then twirl to spread syrup smooth over apple. Place on lightly greased baking sheet to cool. Store in a cool place.
Step7-If candy mixture cools too quickly while dipping the apples, it may be reheated over low heat.
