Steal this Idea*: Matt's Scary Apples

Its Friday (yippee!) - time for another Steal this Idea* feature - a tiny show of appreciation for a well executed tutorial. Today's edition is (surprise, surprise) a very special Halloween edition coming from the twisted mind of Matt Armendariz over at fabulous food blog, Matt Bites.

Matt took these everyday items...


...worked his culinary hocus pocus to transform all that into this:

Wow. Wow. Wow. I'm dying to try this. Read all the details at his blog.

So tell me the truth - is making candied apples a lot harder than Mr. Matt is making it seem? It can't be as simple it sounds. Is it worth me investing in a candy thermometer or should I just leave this task to the pros?

postscript:
*When I say steal, I really mean borrow nicely and give proper credit!
**If you have an idea/tutorial you would like me to consider for a feature, email me. I'd love to see!
