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.


Serves: 9 

  • 9 small red apples
  • solid wooden skewers
  • 2 cups (440g) sugar
  • 150ml water
  • 30g butter
  • 1 tablespoon glucose
  • 3 drops red food colouring

Preparation:15hours  ›  Cook:30min  ›  Ready in:15hours30min 

  1. Wash and dry the apples thoroughly. Impale them on the skewers.
  2. Place sugar and water into a saucepan, stir over heat until the sugar is dissolved. Add butter and glucose, cook rapidly, without stirring until it reaches 150 degrees C or is at hard crack stage.
  3. When mixture stops bubbling add the red food colouring.
  4. Stand the saucepan in a large bowl of hot water to prevent the toffee from setting. Dip apples into the toffee to coat thoroughly. Stand upright (apple down) on a greased tray to set.

Hard crack stage

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.

Toffee apples with peanuts

To make a peanut variation, roll apples in 1 cup chopped roasted peanuts after dipping into the toffee and allow to set.
