- 8 apples
- 400g caster sugar
- 1 tsp vinegar
- 4 tbsp golden syrup
- Water, boiled & non boiled
- Decoration (I used, sesame seeds, coloured sugar, & pretzels).
Place apples in a large bowl & cover with boiling water to remove any wax. Dry thoroughly & twist of stalks. Push a wooden skewer into the stalk end of each apple (or a fork if you don't have any)!
Lay out a sheet of baking parchment and place the apples on this, close to your stove. Tip sugar into pan along with 100m cold water & set over a medium heat. Cook until the sugar dissolves (5 minutes or do) & then add the syrup & vinegar.
Set a sugar thermometer in the pan & boil to 150 degrees C 'hard crack' stage.
Working quicky, dip & roll each apple in the toffee until covered. let the excess drip away & if using any decoration, dip the apple in now before setting on the parchment to set.
