~Candy Apple Chips!

Do you remember those delicious bright Red Cinnamony Candy Apples found at every State Fair and Fall Festival since the beginning of time?!  Think back to the time when we were young enough to bite into those rock hard, sticky gems and not lose $1,500.00 worth of dental work..ahh, those were the days..lol!

Well, here’s the perfect way to enjoy that crisp, glossy, cinnamon candy coated Apple treat that we all know and love, minus any potential tooth loss!  These slices are super easy to crunch and pack that same flavor punch & reminiscent feel as the full sized tooth-buster.

~Make a big batch of these sliced, sweet candied Cinnamon Apple treats.  They make such a fun & unique snack, sure to put a youthful (full set of teeth) smile on everyone’s face! :)

What you’ll need:

*Ignore the Maple Syrup above..that’s for an upcoming recipe*

2 medium Apples

A mandolin for slicing

1 Cup Sugar

1 Cup Water

3 drops of Cinnamon Extract..or to taste

5 drops of Red Food Coloring..or to your liking!


Slice the Apples.

Bring the sugar, water, extract and food coloring to a boil (stirring constantly) in a medium pot and gently add in the Apple Slices…

Let them simmer for approx 15 minutes or until they’re translucent.

With tongs, transfer them one at ta time onto a wire rack over a baking sheet and lay them in a single layer.

Bake them at 350 for approx. 15 minutes…

Let them cool on some parchment until they nice and get crispy.

As a bonus, this recipe leaves behind a glorious pool of sweet ‘Cinnamon Candy Apple Syrup’ just perfect for topping Vanilla Ice Cream..do this, trust me!

I promise Cinnamony Candy Apple Ice Cream is HEAVEN! ~Enjoy! :)


  1. I don’t know who you are, or how I managed to get to your site, but I sure am glad I’m here. I’m just going to put it our there, I think I love you. I can not wait to try some of your recipes and I am defiantly bookmarking you!

    • Hahaha…well, I love you too! So glad you found your way here and that you enjoy it. :)

  2. Do you add the extract and food coloring to the sugar and water before or after boiling. I read the recipe twice, but didn’t see that step. Just told my hubby that I will probably make these this weekend, being that I have everything except the apples. Wish me luck.

    • Yes..they all get boiled and simmered together..I revised that, thank you! :)
      And yes…good luck, remember they get crisp as they cool…enjoy!

  3. Has anyone made this with Splenda ?

  4. What a great site, and I love the photography! Food is not easy to photograph, but you have done a super job! The recipes look easy and delicious. Kudos!

    • Aww..thank you so very much! :)

  5. I made these and they are great, can’t wait to make them again

  6. I just found you today Amy, although I have reposted some of your recipes on fb. Well, today, I have posted many and bunches. I think I love you and I wanna marry you and I don’t think my husband will mind at all. lol. Do you have a recipe book I can purchase? I will have to go back through all the ones I reposted and I haven’t even hit the half way mark. I love to bake and cook and entertain. It’s my passion. I think you have an incredible recipe “book” . Did you create each recipe yourself? I wanna be like you when I grow up. …Thank you for YOUR passion. I promise I am not a stalker. lol.

    • Lol..aww, you made my day! Thank you so much for your kind words..and I may have a book in the works, fingers crossed! :)

  7. I wonder if these would work in a dehydrator? My mouth is watering just thinking about making these! Also, would the candy Red Hots work if you don’t have cinnamon extract? Thanks in advance!

  8. I thought I would offer an alternatative to the cinnamon extract and food coloring… Just melt the cinnamon imperial red hots… the little red ones… and then add your slices of apples. We used to make these in school for Johnny Appleseed’s Birthday Sept, 26th… Crock pot cooking in a K classroom! The halls would smell so yummy all day long with 3 other classes doing the same activity!

    • That’s great…thank you! :)

  9. What is the best way to store these and for how long ?Im having a kid friendly baby shower next weekend and these were requested by some

    • It’s best to eat them fairly quickly//or crisp them up in the oven again before serving~ they will get soft! :)

  10. do i need cinnamon?
