Grandpa Pencil's Recipe

Toffee Apples


Toffee Apples


  • 1 cup Sugar
  • 1/4 cup Water
  • 1 pinch Cream of Tartar
  • 6 juicy medium apples
  • 1/4 teaspoon Red Food Colouring
  • Adjust quantities for number required


 You will need
Saucepan, spoon, heavy wooden skewers and a greased oven tray


  • Wash and dry the apples and insert your skewer into each one
  • Heat sugar, water and cream of tartar in a saucepan stirring until it has all dissolved and the mixture boils
  • Boil without stirring until, when a spoonful is dropped into a bowl of cold water, it immediately hardens
  • Remove toffee from the heat and carefully coat each of your apples before the toffee has had time to set
  • Swirl the apple around to ensure that is fully coated
  • Stand, with stick upright, on your greased tray
    Wrap in cellophane and keep on ice at your fete
