This candy apple green is made by cooking a blend of sugar, butter, heavy cream, corn syrup, and a touch of salt to the perfect temperature.

The addition of green apple extract infuses the candy with a refreshing apple flavor, while optional green food coloring gives it a vibrant hue reminiscent of fresh green apples.
