Vintage Recipes: 1966 Cinnamon candy apples

This week I’ve decided to continue highlighting my love of vintage cooking. Last week, I highlighted 18th century cooking. This week, I’m widening the scope, and focusing on the 19th and 20th century. Since it’s apple season, I’m going to focus on apple recipes.

With Halloween a little more than a month away, I thought this was the perfect vintage apple recipe to share. This recipe video is from Cup of Zest. You can find her channel HERE,  which features retro and vintage recipes. She indicates that this “vintage inspired” recipe is originally from the 1966 Better Homes and Gardens Cookies and Candies Cookbook.


  • 2 tablespoons distilled white vinegar
  • 6 small to medium apples
  • 6 lollipop sticks or other sticks
  • 3 cups sugar
  • 1 1/2 cups water
  • 1 cup light corn syrup
  • 1 teaspoon red food coloring
  • 2 drops maroon food coloring
  • 10-12 drops cinnamon oil
  • Optional: gold leaf, sparkles, etc.

HERE’S TODAY’S VIDEO – Cinnamon Candy Apples

Until next time… Namaste my friends
