Recipe provided courtesy of Pillsbury



what you need

10 small apples

10 craft sticks (flat wooden sticks with round ends)

2 cups sugar

3/4 cup water

1 cup light corn syrup

1 cup creamy peanut butter

1 tablespoon shortening

1 cup chopped honey-roasted peanuts


make it

1. Line cookie sheet with waxed paper; spray waxed paper with cooking spray. Wash and dry apples; remove stem and blossom ends. Insert craft stick into stem end of each apple.

2. In a 2-quart saucepan, mix sugar, water, and 1/4 cup of the corn syrup. Heat to boiling over medium-high heat. Cook about 8 minutes, without stirring, to 300°F on candy thermometer, or until small amount of mixture dropped into cup of very cold water separates into hard, brittle threads. (Watch carefully so mixture does not burn.) Immediately remove from heat.

3. Working quickly, dip each apple in sugar mixture. Place on cookie sheet; let stand 4 minutes.

4. Meanwhile, in top of double boiler, mix remaining 3/4 cup corn syrup, the peanut butter, and shortening. Cook over simmering water about 4 minutes, stirring constantly until smooth.
