Poison Toffee Apples for Halloween

Ingredients

  • 2 cups granulated sugar
  • 3/4 cups water
  • 1/2 cup liquid glucose/light corn syrup
  • few drops black gel food colouring
  • 6 Granny Smith apples or 12 small apples (Ensure your apples are fresh and haven’t been waxed)

Instructions

  • Grease a piece of baking paper and place on a tray/baking sheet.
  • Insert bamboo skewers in all the apples and set aside.
  • In a medium pot, combine the sugar, water, glucose/corn syrup and food colouring and stir over medium heat until the sugar has dissolved and the mixture feels smooth when you rub it between your fingers.
  • When the sugar has dissolved, turn the heat up and wash the sides of the pot down with a pastry brush dipped into clean water to prevent crystals from forming.
  • Allow the caramel to boil until it reaches the hard crack stage (150°c/310°F on a candy thermometer).
  • Carefully dip the apples into the hot candy mixture and place on the baking paper to set and cool for approximately an hour before serving.
