Red Candy Apples
Red candy apples make luscious yummy pins. It is not difficult to make candy apples and turn them into pins. The candied apple is also known as toffee apples or caramel apples. The topping for these luscious gooey concoctions fluctuates from place to place, but it is just about always adorned with some type of stick in the middle to make it easier to eat.
Candy apples are a very familiar treat at Halloween because the holiday falls right around the yearly apple harvest. Toffee apples are an extremely popular dessert of children and adults during the Halloween season.
The shape is incredibly basic and uncomplicated. Enhance the caramel topping by adding drops of paint to depict the presence of nuts. Different colored frit can added to indicate candy sprinkles.
