Hey guys, it’s Ro! And welcome to another
Nerdy Nummies! And, happy Halloween! Halloween is one of my favorite holidays,
so I decided to do something very special, we are gonna be making candy
apples, because it’s perfect for October, and the fall, and we are gonna
make them look like Spiderman! Because that’s kinda creepy spiders for
Halloween! So let’s get started! The things you will need, will be: 2 cups
of regular white sugar, 1/2 a cup of oop! Got some sugar on my finger! 1/2 a
cup of light corn syrup, 3/4 cup of water, 3 apples, I’m using Granny
Smith. 1 teaspoon of red food coloring dye, a bunch of these wood skewers,
but they kind of look like wooden stakes that you’d stake a vampire with!
That’s OK! You’ll also need a piece of wax paper to
go over your cookie sheet, and, a wooden spoon, a spatula, a medium sized
saucepan, and a candy thermometer! Let’s get started! Now you’re gonna take your little wooden
skewers, put them right in the middle and push them in there. These are a little bit
easier than lollipop sticks, you can also use lollipop sticks, but because they
have a pointed edge, they go in a little bit easier. I don’t have the most upper
body strength, so I’m gonna be using a hammer. You want to put them in about 1/2 way… Nice! Once you got your apples assembled, you’re
just gonna stick them off to the side, da-dew, da-dew. da-dew! And we’re gonna put together our candy apple
mixture. In your medium sized pot you’re gonna add
all of your ingredients and then stir them up before we head over to the stove. So first you’re going to take your 2 cups of regular
sugar, yeah, yeah, pour him in! And your 3/4 cup of water. 1/2 a cup of light
corn syrup, ooooh! It’s really goopy, it’s really sticky,
so this is where you’re gonna use your mustach-u-ler! To scoop out all the extra
on the inside. Because otherwise it won’t be 1/2 a cup. Now you’re just gonna take a teaspoon of
red food coloring dye. Now you’re gonna take your wooden sch-poon,
and mix it all together until everything is consistent. I feel like this is a witches brew! Hee-hee-hee-hee-hee! Boil-babble-boil-boil and trouble! I just put the pot on the stove, you’re
gonna turn your burner onto a medium heat, I like to put it on a 5, and then you’re
gonna stir your candy syrup until it starts boiling. Once it start boiling,
leave it alone, don’t touch it, just let it boil, and you’re gonna watch
your candy thermometer until the heat rises to 310 degrees. Once it
reaches 310 degrees, remove it from the heat. Now you’re gonna wait until all the
bubbles stop popping, and then you’re gonna take your apple, dip it into the syrup candy,
and slowly spin it around. Then you’re gonna pick it up, wait for the
excess candy to drip off, and put it onto your tray. Now that we’ve got our apples dipped, we are
going to decorate. I’m going to be using big marshmallows,
you can also use regular marshmallows, these are just the ones I had handy, they
were in my kitchen. So what you’re gonna do is take baking scissors,
a little bit of Pam spray, we’re gonna spray our scissors before we
cut our marhsmallows. Helps them not stick. Ready? OK, there we go! Take your big marshmallow, or your medium
one, and we’re just gonna cut off the end to look like a slice. And we’re gonna be
using these marshmallows for Spiderman’s eyes! And then what I like to do is cut it
in half, Then you’re gonna take half of it and cut
kind of the shape of his eye, it’s like a diamond or a tear shape. Pew! Now you’re just gonna take your 2 marshmallow
eyeballs and stick ‘em on the front of your apple! Da-nuh-na-nuh-nuh, da-nuh-na-na-na. Now that you’ve got all the little marshmallow
eyeballs on our little Spiderman Candy Apples, you’re gonna take
black icing, and I’ve got a number 3 tip, here at the top, and we’re just gonna draw
the design of the web of the Spiderman mask. And then I’m gonna take a number 5
tip later on, to outline his eyes! Ta-da! Here are our Spiderman Candy Apples! They
turned out so cute! Thanks for suggesting something Spiderman!
And, Halloween is in a few days, so have a happy Halloween! And don’t, try not to get bit
by any radioactive spiders! Or any spiders of any kind… Yeah, OK! If you have any other suggestions for any

my best to make it happen. Also you can follow me on Facebook and Twitter
