Toffee Apples

When it comes to Halloween and Bonfire Night, a toffee apple is a must! Use this simple four step recipe to make your own at home. 


6 Granny Smith apples
300g demerara sugar
3 tbsp golden syrup
25g salted butter
tsp cider vinegar
Lolly sticks or skewers


1)     Clean the apples, push a lolly stick into the top of each and set aside.

Gently dissolve the sugar, syrup and butter in a saucepan with 75ml water, then stir through the vinegar.

Turn up the heat and boil until the mixture reaches 140C, when it will have reached the toffee stage.

4)     Carefully dip the apples into the hot toffee and swirl to coat. If the pan is too shallow use a spoon to coat. Place on a board lined with baking paper to set and serve.
