Toffee treats

Recipe from: 3/9/2000 12:00:00 AM
Ingredients 5
Servings 6


  • 6
    kebab skewers
  • 6
    medium-sized apples, washed and dried
  • 250
  • 250
    white sugar
  • few drops red food colouring


Insert a kebab skewer deeply into each apple and set aside. Heat the water and sugar slowly. Add colouring according to taste and continue to heat until all the sugar dissolves. Boil until the mixture forms a thick syrup. Test by dropping half a teaspoon of the syrup into a bowl of iced water: if the drop immediately becomes hard, the syrup is ready. Quickly dip the apples one by one into the syrup (take care not to burn yourself) and place slightly apart on waxed paper on baking sheets. Allow caramel to cool and harden and wrap in cellophane (Otherwise store in an airtight container.) Makes 6 toffee apples.
