      These were easy to make. It takes longer for the temperature to reach 300 because you have to wait for the water to boil off. So, don't worry that it isn't going as fast as you think. Also, use a small pot so the liquid is deeper. I also did what another reviewer suggested and sprinkled a cookie sheet with sugar to set the apples on. I also took the left over candy and poured it into little tart pans and made candy discs. I will make this recipe again. Thanks for sharing.

      I have a very similar recipe that I've been making for years. However, it just didn't taste like I remembered them. After trying your recipe today, I knew I had found the *Secret* ingredient. It has to be that tiny bit of cinnamon. What an amazing difference it makes. Thanks Chef Dee, for setting me straight.

      Very easy to make, and using the leftovers to make hard candy was a great idea! I added some extra cinnamon with the food coloring at the end to brighten up the flavor after cooking so long
