Bonfire night toffee apples, great fun to make and share for a cold autumn nights celebration. Once the apples are coated in the sticky toffee plunge or scatter with your favourite toppings, today we used crushed pecans, poppy seeds and colourful edible sprinkles, We made a special one for the birthday girl covered in edible glitter! delightful!
- Prep: 15 mins
- Cook: 15 mins
- Yields: 1
1. Place all the apples in a large bowl and pour over boiling water (this will clean off the wax). Place the apples on kitchen paper to let them dry off. Stick the lollypop sticks in the stalk end of the apple.
2. Prepare the extra ingredients- I used 70g of sprinkles, 70g of poppy seeds and 70g pecans chopped. The best thing about the toffee apples is that you can cover them in anything. I also made one covered in edible glitter for the birthday girl which was also my favourite one.
3. Place some baking parchment onto a tray for the toffee apples. Place the sugar into a large saucepan with 250ml water. Cook over a medium heat for 5 minutes until the sugar has dissolved. Stir in the vinegar and golden syrup. Place a sugar thermometer on the side of the saucepan. Let the sugar boil until it reaches a temperature of 140C.
4. Dip the apples into the toffee and twist off the remaining toffee then quickly dip into the extra ingredients and place on the baking sheet. If the toffee becomes too thick put it back onto the heat until it reaches a boil.
Fab fun to make and a great party gift.
