Toffee Apples

The perfect Autumn night treat for Halloween or Bonfire night. For Halloween – add a drop of black food colouring to the toffee for an extra spooky treat.
This will make enough toffee for the apples plus a little extra. Poor the left overs onto a piece of greeseproof paper and leave to set. Break into pieces with a toffee hammer or knife.

Ingredients:

  • 300g caster sugar
  • 200g golden syrup
  • 100ml water
  • 6 apples

    Method:

    Pop lolly sticks into your apples.

    Put the sugar, syrup and water into a pan.

    Melt on a medium heat, stirring occasionally. Once the sugar has all melted and turned a caramel colour, stop stirring.

    Boil the sugar until it reaches 150 degrees (hard crack) on a thermometer. If you don’t have a thermometer drop a little of the sugar into some water, it should set instantly.

    Turn off the heat and carefully dip your apples into the toffee. Place onto a piece of greaseproof paper until set hard.
