Halloween recipe - Toffee Apples



Another recipe for your Halloween celebrations!!!!

Halloween parties can be lots of fun, and get you to be very creative as my sister and I found when we held a fancy dress Halloween party 3 years ago! Here is a recipe for toffee apples, from Asda magazine, 2008:

Toffee apples

You will need:
6 eating apples
450g demerara sugar
50g Unsalted butter
2tsp cider vinegar
1 tbsp Clear Honey
1. Wash and dry the apples. Push a lolly stick into the base of each one, through the core, making sure it is secure. Grease a piece of baking paper, fill a bowl with cold water and put aside to test the toffee.

2.Put the sugar, butter, vinegar, honey and 150ml cold water into a pan and heat, stirring until the sugar has dissolved.

3. Boil for 10 mins or until the mixture has turned to toffee, testing it as much as possible towards the end. You know when it is ready when a small piece dropped in water turns hard straight away.

4. Remove from the heat and dip the apples in the toffee, coating them. Be careful as the toffee will be hot. Stand on the paper and leave to set before eating.

You can put the names of your guests on the lolly sticks...............we had a few guests at our party, so instead, I put quotes from scary movies on them instead (but that's more for an adult party hahaha!!)
