Who doesn’t know these sweet candy coated apples? Everybody loves them.
With a little bit of imagination, candied apples can be used in many occasions: as giveaways, place card holders, part of the dessert buffet, and even as a themed item in the buffet! You can place them on a long plate on the table or you can wrap them with a bag and tie to seal with a ribbon then give them as part giveaway…! Really these apples are just amazing anyway look at them!
Growing up in Amman,
every afternoon a guy with an old wooden trolley would roam the streets selling these to the neighbourhood’s children. In Arabic they are called A’nbar. My siblings, cousins and I used to wait for him everyday so we can buy our sweet apple treats. They were always made with crisp apples and they were always coated with a red layer of very sweet hard candy. Nowadays there is no limit to the flavour variations, apples are being dipped in a variety of sauces and toppers, that the red sugar coating is no longer the only option. They can be dipped in chocolate, coated with nuts, sprinkles, drizzled with lemon icing, or caramel drizzles… Caramel is in fact one very famous dipping sauce for apples, especially in USA.
Since it is February and Valentine’s is on the way, I thought why not go back to the traditional recipe of Candied Apples, in Traditional Cherry Red Colours. You can use these as part of your Valentine’s Special decor, or to share with your loved one. If you have youngsters or teens, they would love to send these to their special someone, and you would rank as the coolest mum ever!! So here you go, follow these simple steps into a sweet apple flavoured Valentine’s Day!
