Place apples into a pot of boiling water, and boil for 10 seconds each. This step is to get the waxy coating off of the apples.
After 10 seconds, remove apples from the boiling water and place them into an ice bath for 2 minutes.
Remove from the ice bath and dry the apples.
Insert a wooden stick into the top of each apple, pushing about halfway through. Set aside.
Using a medium sized pot over medium-high heat, add in sugar and light corn syrup, and mix well.
Add in water and give it a good mixing again.
Insert your candy thermometer and continue to boil until the temperature reaches between 300 and 310, this will take about 10-15 minutes. Immediately remove from heat!
Working very quickly and carefully – the pot and the coating is extremely hot! Add in the food coloring and edible glitter (optional). Mix well.
Coat each apple in the candy mixture and transfer to the prepared baking sheet. Let candied apples chill for 5 minutes.
Serve and enjoy!
