    I like it. It came out great. I just needed to use a bigger pot so that it doesn't spill out.

      Hello Fellow HomeEcon/Foodies. This recipe was perfect for a catering gig I had. Just for fun I dipped at 250 degrees and the apples were perfect. For the party I cut the apples in 8ths after dipping I rolled have the cut apples in nuts or candy. Very pretty. Thanks Martha

    Don't even try it! Horrible! I not only made these the day of my daughter's b-day party, but I threw them away!!! The were hard, the tasted nasty and I almost pulled out a tooth because my back teeth got stuck. Luckily I was able to get it about in time. Lucky for you that you just read this review or you might have been sorry!

    This recipe is more challenging than it looks. Do not attempt to do it without a candy thermometer. My first batch turned out great, somehow my thermometer broke on the second batch and ruined everything. I also just used regular popsicle sticks instead of the beautiful wood sticks.

    I made these and they turned out beautiful. The only thing is they are too hard. You can't bite into them. What if i stop cooking at a lower temperature like soft crack will this work?
