Toffee Apples  Veg  CD  DP  British


Makes 8      Cold  Vegetarian  Fruit  Desserts  Britain  Europe



For the Treacle Toffee

450g/1lb Demerara Sugar

75g/3oz Butter

1/4 teasp Cream of Tartar

100g/4oz Black Treacle

100g/4oz Golden Syrup

Other ingredients

8 small Dessert Apples




1. Place the sugar in a large saucepan together with 150ml/5fl.oz. Water and heat, stirring until the sugar has melted.


2. Add the remaining treacle toffee ingredients and bring to the boil. Continue to boil until the temperature reaches 132C, 270F. This is called the "soft crack" stage, when a little of the mixture dropped into cold water will separate into a solid, but pliable ball.


N.B.  At this stage the mixture can be turned into a greased shallow square tin and left to set to make Treacle Toffee. Allow to cool for 5 minutes then mark into squares with an oiled knife and leave to set.


3.  Skewer the apples onto long sturdy wooden skewers, then dip each apple into the toffee mixture, coating evenly all the way around.


4. Place on waxed, lightly oiled or parchment paper and leave to set.  Eat within one day.


The Treacle Toffee recipe is good to make at Christmas or Easter as gifts. Wrap in waxed paper and put into pretty boxes tied with thin ribbon.
