We were keeping with our Autumn theme and decided to try making toffee apples. I have never made them before – I thought they were really tricky, turns out they were really easy!!! This is what you are aiming for:

Step 3: Bring it to the boil and let it bubble away without stirring for about ten minutes. Amazingly it doesn’t boil over.

Step 4: While you are waiting poke a stick into each of your apples.

Step 5: Drop your toffee into a glass of cold water and it should solidify straight away. If it doesn’t then just keep on boiling your mixture a little longer.
