Ingredients
  • 6 eating apples, stalks removed
  • 450g demerara sugar
  • 50g unsalted butter
  • 2tsp cider vinegar
  • 1tbsp golden syrup
  • Cake Décor Gold or Silver Glitter Spray
  • YOU WILL ALSO NEED
  • 6 cake pop sticks or wooden lolly sticks
Method
  • Push a cake pop or lolly stick halfway into each of the apples at the stalk end. Set aside. Put a small bowl of cold water in the fridge to chill.

  • Heat the demerara sugar and 150ml water in a pan over a low setting, stirring, until the sugar dissolves.

  • Add the butter, cider vinegar and golden syrup to the pan. Turn up the heat and boil for 10 mins, without stirring, until it turns to toffee. Use a sugar thermometer to check if it’s ready – it should be 140C. Or drop a blob into the bowl of chilled water – it should turn hard. If it’s not done, boil for 2 mins more, then test again. Repeat as necessary.

  • Holding the apples by the sticks, carefully dip them in the toffee, tilting the pan slightly and turning to coat them all over. Put on a lined baking tray and allow them to cool and set completely.

  • Spritz some glitter spray on each apple shortly before serving.
