A Super Sweet Autumn Treat

One of my favourite Autumn treats are toffee apples and with Halloween in a few days it's time to make your own! There's something so comforting about apples covered in sticky toffee topped with chocolate or nuts, they taste divine and only take around 15 minutes to make. I'm not at all an expert on making these but I thought I would share with you the recipe and how mine ended up turning out! I love to top my toffee apples with mixed nuts, this makes them even more delicious. Be sure to let me know in the comments below a few of your favourite Autumn treats!
I N G R E D I E N T S
8 Apples
400g Golden Caster Sugar
1 Tsp Vinegar
4 Tbsp Golden Syrup
M E T H O D
Place all of the apples into a large bowl and pour boiling water until covered, this helps remove the waxy coating on the apples which means the caramel will stick easier. Ensure all of the apples are dry and that a wooden skewer or stick has been placed into the stalk, then lay out a sheet of baking paper and place the apples on top. Next up is to make the toffee, pour the sugar into a pan along with 100ml of water (medium heat), you should cook this for 5 minutes until the sugar has dissolved, then stir in the vinegar and syrup. To test if your toffee is ready pour a little into a bowl of cold water if it hardens instantly then you know it's ready. Covering the apples in toffee can be a little tricky and you have to work rater fast or your toffee will start to harden. Dip each apple in to the toffee and place it back onto the baking paper. Toffee apples are such a fun Autumn treat and taste so much better than shop bought ones. You can add any toppings which makes it even more fun, I went for mixed nuts and they tasted divine!!
