Notes

To improve adhering of candy coating to apples, ensure to remove wax-like coating found upon most store-bought apples. To remove wax-like coating... Bring 1 pot of water + 2 tablespoons vinegar to boil. Turn down heat to simmer. Dip apples for only a few moments, then rub dry with a towel. Magic. Now you have candy-ready apples!
Use a candy thermometer to measure the temperature of the candy coating. This tool will be key in knowing when to remove the sauce from the heat & initiate coating your apples.
If the candy coating becomes too hard during the dipping process, simply reheat the mixture until desired liquid state achieved. Re-dip. carry forth.
