Color-Dipped Candied Pineapple Recipe

Ingredients:

Instructions:

  1. In a large sauce pan, bring water and sugar to a boil.
  2. Add pineapple rings and let simmer on low heat for 45 minutes. Stir and flip the slices occasionally.
  3. Transfer slices to a baking pan and bake at 225 degrees Fahrenheit for about 60-90 minutes.
  4. Remove slices and let cool on a wire rack.
  5. When slices have cooled, coat them in a bowl of granulated sugar.
  6. Heat up the chocolate candy melts according to the package directions.
  7. When your melt is ready, dunk in the rings. Let harden on parchment paper.
  8. Top off with sprinkles.

First things first, bring water and sugar to a boil. Add in pineapple rings, and let simmer on low heat for 45 minutes. Stir and flip the slices occasionally.

It’s time to transfer them to the oven! At this point, the slices should look caramelized and glossy. Once they’re on the baking pan, bake at 225 degrees Fahrenheit for about 60-90 minutes.

The rings should look softly toasted and a little gelatinous. Remove the slices from the baking pan, and let them cool on a wire rack.
