Poison Toffee Apples 

<h1>Poison Toffee Apples </h1>
  • 20 mins to prepare

  • 20 mins to cook

  • Serves 6


  • 2 cups - Sugar
  • 1 tube - Liquid glucose
  • 3 or 4 cups - Water
  • 1 tube - Black food colouring gel
  • 6 - PinKids® apples
  • 6 - Strong twigs cut from a tree and dried out on a radiator or 3 pairs of chopsticks

Full preparation

  1. Line a baking tray with greaseproof paper.
  2. Insert the sticks into the apples at the stalk end.
  3. Place the sugar, water and glucose in a saucepan.
  4. Bring to the boil without stirring and cook until it reaches the hard crack stage at 150C.
  5. When it gets to soft crack 135C, add a black food colouring, I found I needed to add quite a bit to get the colour right.
  6. When the sugar mixture has reached temperature quickly dip the apples into the mixture.
  7. Let the excess drip of and place on the lined baking tray to set.
  8. If the mixture starts to cool during dipping put back on the heat and re heat.
  9. Leave to set and cool for 20 minutes.
