Candy apple recipe

I loved candy apples growing up, we used to get them when we visited the fair. So this year for Halloween I decided to make my own, decorating them with slices of licorice, mini marshmallows and silver sprinkles.

I used the black & white stripe masking tape to cover the sticks, and the lace tape to seal the small sandwich bags around the candy apples that I had placed in cupcake cases.
