Halloween Party Toffee Apples

Serves 6



6 sweet apples

8 oz white sugar

4 oz water

1 oz butter

2 tbsp maple syrup

4 tbsp mixed nuts, finely chopped

6 wooden skewers



Place the sugar and the water in a pan over low heat and heat until the sugar is dissolved. Stir in the butter and maple syrup and bring to a boil. Boil until the mixture becomes syrupy and thick. Remove the pan from the heat and add the nuts. Mix gently. Pierce the apples halfway through with the wooden skewers at the stalk end. Dip each apple carefully into the toffee until well coated. Place onto a lined baking tray until the toffee has hardened.

Happy Halloween
