Nutty toffee apples

Nutty toffee apples

Studded with crunchy nuts, these grown-up toffee apples work well for a Halloween or Bonfire Night party recipe.

Ingredients

Preparation method

  1. Push the wooden sticks halfway into the apples at the stalk end.

  2. Dissolve the sugar and water in a thick-bottomed pan over a gentle heat.

  3. Add the butter and syrup to the mixture and bring to the boil. Continue to boil, without stirring, until the toffee reaches 140C/275F (use a sugar thermometer to measure this).

  4. Remove the pan from the heat and gently stir in the nuts.

  5. Carefully dip each apple into the toffee, making sure each apple is well coated, and set aside to harden on a baking try lined with non-stick parchment.
