Toffee Apple

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.

Ingredients
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

Directions
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.
