  • Twelve 6-inch lollipop sticks
  • 12 Lady apples
  • 1 1/2 cups sugar
  • 3/4 cup pomegranate juice
  • 3/4 cup light corn syrup

How to make this recipe

  1. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper. Firmly insert the lollipop sticks in the bottom of the apples.

  2. In a heavy 3-quart saucepan, combine the sugar with the pomegranate juice and corn syrup. Cook over moderately high heat, swirling occasionally, until the mixture reaches 305° on a candy thermometer, about 20 minutes. Remove from the heat. Working quickly and carefully, turn each apple in the candy until coated, letting the excess drip back into the saucepan; transfer to the prepared baking sheet to set for at least 20 minutes before serving.

Make Ahead

The candied apples can be stored on the kitchen counter at room temperature overnight.
