Candy Apples with Reddy Apple Mix

Candy Apples with Reddy Apple Mix


Making candy apples is easy, just add water to this ready-to-use mix, cook, dip and package!


  • Small, clean, and dry apples
  • #4146 – Reddy Apple Mix
  • 6-8 oz. of water


  • TIP: Have apples clean and dry with setter sticks in place before making the candy coating.
  • Empty contents of one (3.5 lb.) bag of #4146 Reddy Apple Mix into your #4008 Reddy Apple Cooker
  • Add 6 to 8oz of water
  • Mix water and contents of bag thoroughly with a spatula, scraping down the sides of the kettle if needed
  • Turn on Reddy Apple Cooker and heat mix to 290-300 degrees F, stirring occasionally until the mixture looks glassy. (About 10-15 minutes)
  • Dip your apples – be sure to spin the apple well to remove excess coating (a thinly coated apple is easier to eat)
  • Tilt the kettle and secure it with the latch on the side of the cooker for easy dipping
  • Set candy apples on parchment paper to cool
  • Allow candy apple to cool for 30 minutes before serving or packaging.
