A Wee Treat For Bonfire Night – Toffee Apples

I’ve been meaning to make these every year for the kids and I keep forgetting. This year though I remembered.

toffee apples


225 g demerara or golden caster sugar
110 ml water
1/2 tsp vinegar
1 tsp ground cinnamon
2 tbsp golden syrup
25 g butter
6 apples
6 wooden skewers or lolly sticks

1. Stir the sugar in the water over a moderate heat until it has dissolved. Once thats done stir in the vinegar, syrup, cinnamon and butter. Bring to a boil and don’t touch it until it reaches soft-crack stage (135C-ish Most recipes seem to quote hard tack stage but it never fits in with the temp ranges I know and hard tack is too hard to bite into).

2. Pierce each apple with a wooden stick and dip each apple into the hot toffee once it’s ready.

3. Leave to harden on a sheet of greaseproof paper.
