- Toffee apple slices
- 6 red apples (such as Pink Lady, Gala or Jazz)
- ½ lemon
- 6 wooden skewers
- 350g golden caster sugar
- 1 tsp vinegar
- 3 tbsp golden syrup
- 50g pistachios, finely chopped
- 50g salted peanuts, finely chopped
- 50g dark chocolate chips
Cut the two ‘cheeks’ off each apple, leaving the centre with the pips (these can be for nibbling!). Cut the two cheeks into a slice by carefully cutting off the end. Using half a lemon, squeeze and rub the exposed apple with some lemon juice – this will help prevent the apple from oxidizing and going brown. Repeat this with all 6 apples until you have 12 slices.
Skewer each of the slices with a wooden skewer and set aside on a baking sheet lined with baking paper.
Add the caster sugar and 75ml water to a saucepan. Heat this gently for 5 mins until the sugar dissolves into the water. Next, stir in the vinegar and the golden syrup and continue to heat. Use a thermometer to measure the temperature of the caramel – you want it to reach 150°C or ‘hard crack’ stage.
Take the pan off the heat and carefully dip each of the apple slices into the caramel so half is submerged. Remove and allow the excess to drip back into the saucepan before carefully placing back on the baking paper and sprinkling with either the chopped nuts or chocolate chips before the caramel sets.
Allow the slices to set hard on the lined baking paper before serving.
