Candy thermometer, sheet pan, parchment paper or silicone baking mat
1lbstrawberries or other fruit of choice
Wash and pat dry strawberries or fruit of choice.
Arrange fruit on bamboo skewer. I recommend 1-3 pieces per skewer.
Bring water and sugar mixture to a boil.
Using candy thermometer, boil sugar water mixture until the temperature reaches 300 degrees Fahrenheit. This will take approximately 5-10 minutes. See Note 1 if you do not have a candy thermometer.
When sugar water mixture has reached the desired temperature, dip your fruit skewer into the sugar mixture to coat the fruit.
Place each fruit skewer on your sheet pan, silicone baking sheet or parchment paper. See Note 2 about parchment paper.
Sugar coating should harden almost immediately. See Note 3 regarding storage.
Note 1: If you do not have a candy thermometer, you can test the temperature by dipping a spoon into cold ice water and then dipping the spoon into the syrup. If it hardens immediately, then you have reached the proper temperature.Note 2: If you parchment paper is not good quality, your candy may stick to the paper. You can spray parchment paper with pan spray to help prevent sticking.Note 3: Best eaten right away. If you need to store, cover lightly with plastic wrap and store in refrigerator.
