This week's Recipe: How To Make Toffee Apples....Perfect for halloween fun.
15 small Apples
3 cups of Sugar
1 cup of Water
1 teaspoon of Vinegar
A few drops of Red Food Coloring (optional for a classic halloween look)
15 Wooden Sticks
Firstly, make sure you remove the stalks from your apples before you start the process.The push the wooden sticks into base of the apples before placing them in the fridge to chill.
Add sugar, water and vinegar to a heavy based pan and stir until boiling.
Heat uncovered (without stirring) for approximately 20 minutes. To test if the Toffee is ready, add a small amount to some water; if it is ready, then it should form a hard ball.
Remove from heat and add 2 to 3 drops of red food coloring, stirring quickly.
Next, after bubbles subside, dip the apples in the toffee mixture, turning to remove drips. To set, either dip the apples into a bowl of cold water or alternatively, leave them sticks up on a piece of greaseproof paper.
Cool tip; add your own personal touch by decorating the cellophane with Halloween themes or try changing the colour of your Toffee. Another idea would be to roll warm Toffee Apples in Hundreds and Thousands or chopped nuts.
Use your own apples to make this recipe! The best apple type for this recipe would be the sweet type: I would recommend our Golden Delicious Apples, perfect for it!
