Ingredients

12 small apples, stems removed

12 wooden dowels

2 1/2 cups white candy melts

1 1/2 cups orange candy melts

1/2 cup coarse yellow sugar

3/4 cup yellow candy melts

 

Directions

Line a baking sheet with parchment paper. Insert dowels into tops of the apples where stems used to be.
In a heat-safe 4-cup glass measuring cup, or a medium glass bowl, melt white candy melts in the microwave, stirring halfway through, 1 to 2 min. Holding an apple by its stick, dip into melted candy and turn to coat apple completely. Remove, turning to let excess drip off. Place on prepared sheet. Repeat with remaining apples. Let apples stand until candy is firm, about 15 min.
Melt orange candy melts in another glass measuring cup or bowl. Dip an apple two-thirds of the way into melted candy. Remove and let excess drip off. Return to prepared sheet. Repeat with remaining apples. Let stand until candy is firm, about 15 min.
Pour yellow sugar into a shallow bowl. Melt yellow candy melts in another glass measuring cup or bowl. Dip an apple one-third of the way into melted candy. Remove and let excess drip off. Dip apple into yellow sugar to coat. Return to prepared sheet. Repeat with remaining apples. Let stand until candy is firm, about 15 min.
