Eating apples, small

6

Buttery baking spread*

85

Golden syrup

70g

Light brown soft sugar

175g

You will also need…

6 chopsticks or lollysticks 1 tray lined with baking parchment

*Recipe based on 70% fat buttery baking spread.

Step 1 of 4

Dunk the apples in boiling water for 30 seconds, remove with a slotted spoon, cool slightly before wiping with kitchen paper to remove any wax.

Step 2 of 4

Insert the sticks into the apples near the core.

Step 3 of 4

Melt the remaining ingredients in a large pan over a low heat, stirring occasionally. Bring to the boil for about 10-15 minutes stirring frequently – if you have a sugar or food thermometer the temperature you need is about 115°C! IT IS VERY HOT SO BE CAREFUL! It will be a golden brown colour. You can test that its ready by dropping a small amount into a bowl of cold water – if it forms a soft ball then it’s ready (see tip).

Step 4 of 4

Remove from the heat, and very carefully take each apple and roll in the toffee to coat completely – it helps to tilt the pan as you roll the apples. Leave to set on the parchment until hard.

If your caramel doesn’t set on the apples – it might be that the surface of the apple was too smooth or waxy.  You can always score the apples lightly with a knife to help the toffee stick.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Clean the kids teeth If you are worried about the toffee having an adverse effect on your children's teeth. After biting through the toffee the apple cleans their teeth and makes them ready for a slice of parkin. You could then have some black peas but be careful not to break wind near a sparkler. Your neighbours will think that an atomic bomb has just landed on the lawn.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Toffee apples don't work Tried this 4 times and it didn't work. Toffee doesn't stick to apples at all. Think the amounts are wrong. The toffee is horrible afterwards too. Waste of money and time I'm afraid.
