Kim Battle, owner of Kandy Apples by K in Raleigh, NC, will delight your sweet tooth in this interactive workshop. Come learn all the tips and tricks of making the perfect rose hard candy apple. A true hard candy is encased in a super shiny, bright-colored red hard shell that shatters when you bite into it. The very first candy apple was created by William Kolb, a confectioner in Newark, NJ who actually made them in 1908 to display in his shop window at Christmastime.
Cost of Workshop: $15

Kim Battle is the K behind Kandy Apples by K! The idea of a candy apple shop came from her love for candy apples and a desire to have them year-round, not just when the State Fair came into town. An accountant by day and mother of 5, Kim spent her weekends working local markets to get her name out there, and their delicious products in the hands of everyone she could share them with. In April 2019, Kim was able to open her first storefront, open 3 days a week, offering candy apples in more than 25 different flavors!
