Red, White and Blue Bark

Ingredients
1 package (14 ounces) White Candy Melts
1 package (14 ounces) Red Candy Melts
1 package (14 ounces) Blue Candy Melts
Cinnamon drop sprinkles or crushed peppermint pinwheel candies
Preparation
Line cookie pan with parchment paper.
Melt each package of Candy Melts following package instructions. Spoon candy into prepared pan distributing colors randomly. Tap pan on counter to remove air bubbles; with spoon or butter knife, marble candy in pan. Sprinkle with cinnamon drops or crushed peppermint candies. Chill until firm, about 10 minutes.
Remove parchment from pan; break candy into smaller serving pieces.
Serves Each piece serves 1



Fire Red Candy Apples

Ingredients
8 medium apples, green or red
2 3/4 cup(s) sugar
1 1/4 cup(s) light corn syrup
1 1/2 cup(s) water
1 teaspoon(s) vanilla
15 drops red food coloring
Wash and dry apples, remove stems and insert a wooden stick into the bottom (not stem end) of the apples; approximately 2/3 of the way into the apple. Set apples aside.
In saucepan, combine sugar, corn syrup and water. Heat slowly on low heat, stirring constantly. Once mixture starts to boil, stop stirring and leave boiling until candy mixture reaches 300°F on a candy thermometer, or until a small amount of mixture dropped into cold water separates into breakable threads.
Remove from heat and stir in food coloring. Wait until mixture stops bubbling, then add vanilla, mix well.
Dip each apple into the mixture while mixture is still hot, swirl to cover apple evenly. You will need to work fast to get all the apples dipped before mixture becomes too hard.
Place dipped apple on greased cookie sheet or greased wax paper.
