Like I have to tell you, apples coated in toffee! Great for fetes, birthday parties and Halloween. When the apples are cold you can wrap them in cellophane or greaseproof paper.
To check if the toffee is ready, drop a small amount of syrup into a glass of cold water. It should set hard and be hard to crack with fingers. If it forms a soft ball that you can mould with your fingers, it needs to cook for longer.
To make a peanut variation, roll apples in 1 cup chopped roasted peanuts after dipping into the toffee and allow to set.
