Tiffany Blue Candy Apples Directions


Gather supplies, this may take awhile in case you need to order them online if you cannot source them locally. Clean wax off applies if applicable and DRY apples, cut stem off with scissors and insert wooden dowels- candy apple stick into each apple. For instructions how to remove wax and prevent bubble in candy apples read here, and follow steps carefully.

Tiffany blue candy apples suppliesYou must use ‘Gel’ food coloring, not traditional food coloring.

tiffany blue candy apple prep- SWEET HAUTEApples must be room temperature, and dry!


Next place candy thermometer into pot, do not touch the bottom of pot with the candy thermometer, it should be suspended above to read accurately. Spray non-stick cooking spray on your 1/2 cup, THEN pour your Light color Corn Syrup into it. Place into pot.


Then pour in 3 Cups of Sugar, 1 Cup of Water, 1 teaspoon of Teal Gel food coloring that I found in this pack, and 2 teaspoons of White Gel food coloring.

Note: If the tone of color is too light, too dark after combining, add a few drops of color to match your preference.


Mix and turn stove to Medium-high heat, bring mixture to a boil. Do not leave mix, watch it carefully until candy thermometer reaches 300*F – 302*F. The ‘hard crack candy’ finish.

While that is boiling, make sure you’ve set out an area for the candy apples to cool. i used a cookie sheet lined with a non-stick element like parchment or silicone mat.

Remove from heat, gently stir in 1 teaspoon Vanilla Extract. Mix until smooth and combined.


Dip and spin apples in mix, with the pot tilted slightly. Set aside to cool on cookie sheet lined with parchment paper or silicone mat etc.

TIP: How to REMOVE candy apple mix residue from pot, simply run hot water in the sink and let pot sit in the running hot water until clean.

    • Happy that this project will be helpful to your DIY theme….Breakfast at Tiffany’s idea is so fun

      • hi do you make candy apples for people who would rather pay for this to be done? I’m one of those people lol

        • No I do not make and ship candy apples, sorry…it’s a really fun and simple process if you do give it a go

  • Linda Manns Linneman says:

    These are awesome. I love it. Thank you so much for sharing the how to

  • These are simply beautiful! I wanted to know how do you dip the apples without getting the air bubbles? How do you get that flawless apple every time?!

    • Thank you Brittany, I still get a few air bubbles as the mixture cools down. I just am careful to not create bubbles when adding the vanilla/ or any flavor, then quickly coat the apples before the candy cools too much.

  • I have not tried candy apples before, but these do look yummy. Might have to try 🙂

    • Kelly, they are actually really easy….the trick is to not get bubbles in candy apples, do not over heat candy over degrees mentioned

  • How did you get your coating solid color? I tried it and my coating was transparent. Please help!!

  • These are gorgeous! Thank you for sharing your recipe and what gorgeous pics.

  • Jasmine P says:

    These are super cool! Thanks for sharing!

  • This look great. I want to make some for my daughter’s frozen themed birthday party. How long are they good for when made? Thanks

    • Awe this would be perfect for a Frozen Party right?!?! Good luck

  • Beautifully done! Thanks for sharing! I see that someone asked how to avoid bubbles, but can you explain the actual technique on how to avoid bubbles when adding the vanilla? Is that by stirring more, stirring less? Also, how to you get such an evenly round and small footer at the bottom of the apple after dipping and setting on the cookie sheet? THANKS!

    • I didn’t stir in vanilla any particular way. Then to avoid candy apple bubbles I do not stir the mix once I removed from heat. I also coat each apple a quickly as possible, when it starts to set up (cool) is when I notice bubbles. So usually my last 2 apples have bubbles. I do not always get a small footer, you must coat it perfectly with no excess to avoid that, some are small and others (with thicker candy coating) had a bigger foot. Hope that helps….
      I’m not a professional candy maker, this is what I made for an event and I diy them to save on cost. I just share my projects on my website.

      • So dao you dyir in the vanilla before or akdter you rovpe the candy from heat??

  • These apples look so pretty!

  • Linda Manns Linneman says:

    I just love these apples. What a clever idea. Thank you so much for sharing

  • Wow, this looks amazing. I wonder what does it tastes like.

    • you can make them any flavor, we made ours Vanilla flavor with food grade extract.

  • Super cute idea! I love the color and never would of thought to do this!

  • Beautiful! Do they dry hard enough to wrap them in cellophane paper or would they still be sticky?

  • BILL HOFF says:

    We are always looking for different treats to prepare the grand kids!

  • Andrea Newkirk says:

    Hello, your candy apples turned out beautiful!. I just started making candy apples myself and Im trying to perfect my new hobby. The ones Ive made turned out nice but the biggest problems Ive had is the bubbles forming after I dip them. Could you tell me what could cause this problem?. Ive been trying different things that people have told me but nothing is working. HELP me please lol.

    • I dont do anything out of the ordinary. Follow the tutorial, and they will come out….some still may have some bubbles. Good luck

    • Try getting rid of the wax on the apples. The wax causes the bubbles. Search online for Apple wax removal

  • clojo9372 says:

    the are so so pretty! i love that shade of blue! i think i might try this once i get the confidence that i won’t make a mess of it! lol Thanks so much for these posts!

  • Hello! This is a lovely idea!!! Thanks for sharing <3 Question: do you know how long before the candy starts to melt and coming off the apple? Do you think I could make these a day before I have to serve them?
    Thank you in advance!!!

    • I make them a day ahead, leave at room temp….do not place in refrigerator

      • I’m trying but my candy is not sticking to apple its slideing off what am I doing wrong?

    Thanks for sharing you recipe. Gotta try it!

  • wiffleart says:

    Could you make a two or three days ahead? So much to do right before a wedding shower!

    • I wouldn’t recommend, I always do night before. It really quick anyways….do everything else ahead, then prepare cellophane wrapping, apple sticks, ingredients, and ribbon.

    I have to make these..They are so pretty in the blue. Thank you for sharing 🙂

    thank you so much for sharing the temperature information to help prevent bubbles. I have asked others who make candy apples and you would think I was asking for the key to the mint. This was such a huge help.

  • Yakwanda thomas says:

    Thank you for sharing. Please tell me if the apples end up soft & chewy after your recipe or hard candy kind. Thank you and they are very beautiful.

    • thank you for visiting, candy thermometer and waiting for it to reach ‘hard crack’ candy shell

    • Yakwanda thomas says:

      Thank you so much for the rapid response.

      Do I have to use both gel colors or just the white?

      And how can I send you pictures of my work when I try it?

      People are charging $100 for these recipes and I found your page. You are AMAZING!!


  • These candy apples look like great fun to make for the kids.I have made them before but have neve tried this pretty blue color.They look great!

  • Hi i wanted to know about the sticks, How sturdy are the skewers, and how well does the straw fit over them… I’m trying to make my own apples for my baby shower, and give them away as favors, but i want to use a different print for the straws, is there specific sizes for the sticks and straws that i should be getting?

    • The sticks are are sturdy, I used thick wooden candy apple sticks. You can find online or grocery store. The straws I had to cut the edge then fit over each stick. Thanks for visiting….

  • Those look so yummy! I have not had candy apples before, but I love the blue color!
