Christmas candy apples. It’s Christmastime, and that means it’s time for the annual Christmas candy apple-making tradition!

What is a Christmas Candy Apple?

A Christmas Candy Apple is a sweet treat that you can enjoy during the Christmas season.

A traditional candy apple is dipped in a sugary syrup and rolled in peanuts, coconut, or sprinkles. The apples are then coated with a layer of chocolate and decorated with festive candies.

What are the Different Types of Candy Apples?

Candy apples are a popular treat for the holidays. They are a sweet, crunchy, and gooey treat that is loved by many. They come in different shapes, colors and flavors. Some of the most popular types of candy apples are:

Red Apple Candy Apples: These ones have a red coating or dip on them and can be found in stores like Target or Walmart.

White Chocolate Candy Apples: These ones have white chocolate on them, so they are not as sweet as other types of candy apples. You can find these at specialty stores like Trader Joe’s or Whole Foods Market.

Caramel Apple Candy Apples: These ones have caramel drizzle on them and can be found at most grocery stores during the fall season.

Chocolate Candy Apples: These ones have chocolate drizzle on them and can also be found at most grocery stores during the fall season.

Why Are Candy Apples Called “Candy” in the First Place?

Candy apples are called “candy” in the first place because they are made of a sugar and water solution boiled to the hard crack stage. This means that it has been heated to a temperature of 300°F (150°C) or higher, which is hot enough to caramelize the sugar.

The process of making candy apples involves dipping an apple into a pot of boiling hot sugar syrup and then coating it with chocolate, sprinkles, nuts, or other toppings.

In America, candy apples are traditionally eaten during Halloween and Christmas.

  • unsalted butter
  • 2 cups granulated sugar
  • 3/4 cup (180 ml) water
  • 1/2 cup (125 ml) light corn syrup
  • 1/2 teaspoon red coloring
  • 6 medium apples


Step 1

Line a baking sheet with parchment paper. Butter the parchment, and set it aside.

Step 2

In a saucepan, combine sugar and 3/4 cup (180 ml) of water, then add in the corn syrup and food coloring. Bring to a boil over high heat, then reduce the heat to medium-high, for about 20 minutes, or until a candy thermometer inserted reaches 300-310 F (150-155 C)

Step 3

Meanwhile, insert a wooden stick into the top of each apple, pushing them halfway in; set aside. When mixing reaches the correct temperature, remove it from the heat. Dip apples in the sugar mixture until they're completely coated and then put them on the baking sheet. When they're done, they should be cooled off.
