{Autumn Bucket List} Make Toffee Apples

Sunday, 3 November 2013


Toffee apples are the ultimate Autumn treat. It might well be tooth decay on a stick, but as long as you practice good dental hygiene, the odd treat here and there isn't going to hurt in my humble opinion - besides, an apple a day keeps the doctor away! Though I do recommend licking these rather than biting them...

These couldn't be easier to make, and they're great to enjoy on bonfire night.

All you need is the following:

6 apples
Lolly sticks (or forks will do)
A shop-bought 400g pack of original toffee sweets (Werthers are ideal)
2 tablespoons of milk (or water)
Half a teaspoon of vanilla extract

  1. Put your apples in a colander and pour over some boiling water to enable the toffee to stick more easily to the skin.
  2. Insert the lolly sticks (or forks) in to your apples, and place them on a silicon baking sheet (or if like me you couldn't find yours, a silicon cake mould will do!). I would recommend the silicon rather than greaseproof paper, as it often sticks whereas it peels straight off the silicon.
  3. Combine the toffee, milk/water and vanilla in a saucepan and heat gently while stirring, until it has melted and is smooth.
  4. When your toffee is ready, dip the apples in one by one, coating them thoroughly before placing them back on the silicon to set.
We decorated ours with some melted white chocolate and sprinkles & I have it on good authority that they tasted great... since I didn't actually get one.

Do you have any favourite bonfire night treats?
