Gothic Black and Red Candy Apples On A Stick

I have a fall favorite, Gothic Black and Red Candied Apples.

Black Candied Apples are are made with fresh crisp apples. They’re dipped into a sugary bath that’s been dyed using black or red paste food coloring.

The sugar mixture hardens to the apples and creates a gorgeous glossy finish. These Candied Apples are a treat for your children.

You could make these for one of the goodies you have at a Halloween party, or give them to friends!

Imagine the look on those little faces when they bite into one of these tasty dark treats.
