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.
I didn't find the instructions easy to follow. - 30 Oct 2010 (Review from Allrecipes UK & Ireland)
Can you tell me how long it should bubble for as I have made them twice and both times it hardens before i can cover 3 apples so i am thinking maybe i have boiled it too long? It tastes great just can't seem to get it on the apple :S - 23 Jul 2013 (Review from Allrecipes UK & Ireland)
Leave out the butter or the toffee is too greasy to stick to the apples.. I used a toffee thermometer and also added a little strawberry flavouring at the end..the trick or treaters loved them, tried calling a second time 😃 - 02 Nov 2015 (Review from Allrecipes UK & Ireland)
