Toffee Apples for Bonfire Night

Toffee apples are great fun at any time of the year, but we love them especially on Fireworks Night, and it’s a great way to sneak fruit into the kid’s diet.

Toffee Apples


8 small apples, washed and stalks removed

8 fl. oz. (225ml.) water

1 lb. (450g) sugar


Pour the sugar and water into a microwave bowl and cook on high for 5 minutes

Stir until sugar has dissolved then continue cooking on high until golden, about 17-20 minutes

Meanwhile insert a 5-6 inch length of dowelling into each apple

Remove toffee mixture from microwave and stand for 2 minutes

Dip the apples in the toffee mixture; you can use a spoon to make sure all of the apple is covered.

Hold the apples over the bowl to drain then stand on greaseproof paper to harden.

Baked potatoes are a classic dish with so many variations, we have given you a few ideas here, but be creative, and put on whatever you fancy, go on , its only once a year!
