Here's the classic recipe for a perennial Halloween and fall favorite.
2. In saucepan over medium heat, combine sugar, corn syrup, food coloring and water. Cook, stirring constantly, until ingredients are dissolved and liquid boils. Set a candy thermometer in mixture and continue cooking, without stirring until temperature reaches 290 F, about 20 minutes.
3. Place chopped peanuts in a bowl.
4. Remove syrup from heat and dip the apples, one by one, to coat evenly. Work quickly. After you dip each apple, roll in peanuts to coat, then place on prepared cookie sheet. Let apples cool for at least an hour.
