Wash and dry the apples thoroughly. Impale them on the skewers.
Place sugar and water into a saucepan, stir over heat until the sugar is dissolved. Add butter and glucose, cook rapidly, without stirring until it reaches 150 degrees C or is at hard crack stage.
When mixture stops bubbling, add the red food colouring.
Stand the saucepan in a large bowl of hot water to prevent the toffee from setting. Dip apples into the toffee to coat thoroughly. Stand upright (apple down) on a greased tray to set. When cold wrap in cellophane or greaseproof paper.
To make a peanut variation, roll apples in 125g chopped roasted peanuts after dipping into the toffee and allow to set.
Can you tell me how long it should bubble for as I have made them twice and both times it hardens before i can cover 3 apples so i am thinking maybe i have boiled it too long? It tastes great just can't seem to get it on the apple :S - 23 Jul 2013
Leave out the butter or the toffee is too greasy to stick to the apples.. I used a toffee thermometer and also added a little strawberry flavouring at the end..the trick or treaters loved them, tried calling a second time 😃 - 02 Nov 2015
