Ingredients

  • 460g caster sugar
  • 260g golden syrup
  • 300ml water
  • red food colouring

Instructions

1
Put the sugar, golden syrup and water into the pan and place on a medium heat. The reason for having a pale coloured pan is so you can see the colour of the mixture and how caramelised it is... if it goes a deep brown it's burnt!
2
Heat the mixture until it reaches 150°C, this should take twenty to thirty minutes and you do not need to stir it.
3
Whilst the toffee is cooking, insert the sticks into the apples. If needed use a hammer. Also prepare a tray or board for the apples by covering it in greaseproof paper.
4
Once at the correct temperature remove, from the heat and add food colouring until you reach the desired colour.
5
Dip each apple into the mixture, giving it a swirl to ensure even coverage. Allow the apple to drip for a moment to remove the excess, but work quickly to avoid the toffee cooling too quickly.
6
Place the apple onto the greaseproof paper and allow to cool.
