Simple & easy home-made toffee apples.

Nothing beats a home-made treat, especially when it comes to toffee apples. Not only are toffee apples simple to make, they’re also a great way to entice the kids into the kitchen.
Now that it is apple season, there’s really no better time to start making your own batch of deliciously sweet treats. We recommend making at least 12 and keeping them saved in the fridge as special treats for guests.


  •  12 firm, crisp un-waxed Granny Smith apples
  •  12 wooded skewers
  • 1kg white sugar
  •  4 tbsp. white wine vinegar
  • 4 tbsp. boiling water
  • 1/2 teaspoon red food colouring
  •  Baking paper
  • Food Grade clear wrapping sheet
  •  Decorative Ribbons


1.       Remove stems from apples and push sticks through. Set aside on baking paper.

2.       Over a low heat, combine the sugar, vinegar and boiling water in a pot and stir continuously.

3.       Bring to a boil and stir in the food colouring.

4.      Boil for 10 minutes or until it reaches a soft crack stage.
Note: To see if the mix is at its soft crack stage, pour a drop of toffee into a bowl of water. If it doesn’t go hard immediately it is not ready.

5.      Dip the toffee apple into the syrup and twist it around so that the entire apple is covered. Place on baking tray to harden.

6.      Wrap and decorate with clear sheet and ribbon.
