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.
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.
