bulletA Tasty Dessert

To make a favorite Boy Scout dessert, try this recipe:

Ingredients for 24 Apples

bullet1 can corn syrup (1.5 lb. size)
bullet2 lbs. granulated sugar
bullet1/4 lb. butter

Let the above ingredients come to a boil while you stand by and stir. Stir as if you meant it, from the sides and bottom, where it takes a notion to stick sometimes. Keep right on until it forms into a small soft ball when dropped into cold water. It's ready! And don't let anybody fool you into adding water, even if it does look too thick.

Now, for the fun! Impale each apple on a stick and dip it (not drop it) into the butter-scotch syrup. Hurry up, you have all those apples to dip before the syrup becomes ornery. It hardens then. This recipe makes enough syrup for two dozen apples. Is that enough?


Dip the apples and let them stand until they cool and the butter-scotch partially hardens. It hardens almost too quickly in cold weather. If it becomes necessary to hasten the hardening in hot weather, dip them into cold water. Preparations for candied apples should begin long before desert time.

An easy way to eat these apples is to hold them with two sticks crossed at right angles, but why should apples like these be made easy to eat?
