Amaranth powder is the red coloring once used by pharmacists in the preparation of medications. Your local chemist may have a jar, so stock up (a little goes a long way) for professional-looking toffee apples. Otherwise, use liquid food color, cochineal, or red powdered Chinese food coloring available from Asian provision stores.
