Steal this Idea*: Matt's Scary Apples

Its Friday (yippee!) - time for another Steal this Idea* feature - a tiny show of appreciation for a well executed tutorial. Today's edition is (surprise, surprise) a very special Halloween edition coming from the twisted mind of Matt Armendariz over at fabulous food blog, Matt Bites.

Matt took these everyday items...


...worked his culinary hocus pocus to transform all that into this:

Wow. Wow. Wow. I'm dying to try this. Read all the details at his blog.

So tell me the truth - is making candied apples a lot harder than Mr. Matt is making it seem? It can't be as simple it sounds. Is it worth me investing in a candy thermometer or should I just leave this task to the pros?

postscript:
*When I say steal, I really mean borrow nicely and give proper credit!
**If you have an idea/tutorial you would like me to consider for a feature, email me. I'd love to see!

  5. Matt is a GENIUS and the nicest man you'll ever meet. That said, his husband made the apples, and Adam is a food stylist extraordinaire, so while it might not be that hard to do (but use a candy thermometer), your apples probably won't come out looking quite so amazing.

  6. It really isn't that hard. I make candied apples, caramel apples and popcorn balls to give to trick-or-treaters for Halloween. I'll be posting tutorials on my blog soon, if you'd like to stop by. Good luck!

  11. So awesome! I really really want to make them - but as decor! I could never eat that many, really. My teeth would stage an uprising. I wonder if they last out on a counter?

  12. If it doesn't work you could always roll them in candy crystals to fix the flaws;)

  15. I'm not actually all up on the halloween decorations, but these are amazing! Then again, I'm a sucker for high gloss, and these babies have some sheen! Thanks for the link.
