Add the sugar, corn syrup, water, and food coloring to a large, thick-bottomed pot over medium to medium-high heat. Stir the mixture briefly to help the sugar dissolve.
Heat the mixture until it reaches 290F on an instant-read candy thermometer (hard-crack stage). Remove the caramel from the heat.
Working quickly and carefully, dip each apple in the caramel, let the excess run off, and place it on the prepared baking tray.
