Jack Skellington Candy Apples

Happy Halloween!! It has been a loooong time since I've updated my blog.  But, I have been busy with so many things... It's about time to get caught up!

I've been spending a lot of time working on my YouTube Channel... if you haven't already, head over and subscribe to see all of my videos as soon as they're up!  I have so many videos up, I'll be adding them here, but if you don't want to wait you can check them out instantly over on my channel!

Since Halloween is just around the corner... I wanted to start off with a post sharing my newest Halloween creations!

"The Nightmare Before Christmas" is one of my son's favorite movies (he just turned 5).  In fact, I was helping out in the classroom a few weeks ago and one of the little girls asked me "Is his last name really Skellington?"  He had been telling the kids in his preschool class that it was, lol!

So, my son is the inspiration for these candy apples.  I started thinking of it months ago!  I am so, so happy with how they'd turned out... I had never made candy apples before and was nervous that they wouldn't look nice... but they came out SO great!  Watch my video to see how I made these fun, "Jack Skellington Candy Apples."

3 Cups Granulated Sugar
1 Cup Water
1/2 Cup Light Corn Syrup
1 TBSP White Food Color:
Flavoring of your choice (I used Cinnamon Oil ( about 1/4 tsp, if using an extract use about 1 tsp... clear extracts are better)

Stay tuned, next I will be posting my video for these adorable "Kawaii Halloween Treats!"

Until then...

Happy Caking :)

  2. My white keeps turning beige, what am I doing wrong?

    1. Hi, I'm sorry you are having trouble! Are you using a candy thermometer to make sure you reach the right temperature? If you over cook the sugar, it might caramelize slightly and that would cause it to turn a little brown or beige. Another thought is to wipe out your pot with some vinegar or lemon juice to remove any impurities that might discolor your cooked sugar. A final thought is to use distilled water, in some areas tap water can have minerals that will discolor. These are just guesses, i've never had a problem with the color, mine came out a bright white! Good luck, let me know how it goes!!
