    Serves: 6 

    • 6 dessert apples
    • 6 wooden sticks (like those used for ice lollies)
    • 4 (100g) packets original toffee, such as Walkers
    • 2 tablespoons water
    • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
    • 100g marshmallows, chopped
    • 175g chopped pecans, toasted
    • 175g dark chocolate, chopped

    Prep:10min  ›  Cook:15min  ›  Extra time:20min  ›  Ready in:45min 

    1. Insert wooden sticks 3/4 of the way into the stem end of each apple. Place apples on a cookie sheet covered with lightly greased aluminium foil.
    2. Combine toffee and water in a saucepan over low heat. Cook, stirring often, until toffee melts and is smooth. Stir in the vanilla. Dip each apple into the toffee and gently run apples around insides of saucepan to scrape off some of the toffee. Scrape excess toffee from the apple bottoms using the side of the saucepan.
    3. Combine the chopped marshmallows and pecans on a dinner plate. Roll the apples in the mixture to coat. Place on the aluminium foil and chill.
    4. Put the chocolate in a microwave-safe bowl. Cook in the microwave for 30 second intervals, stirring between each, until melted and smooth. Drizzle over the apples and return them to the refrigerator until ready to serve.

    Little bit fiddly, toffee was hard to stick to the apple but once it did n set, dead yummy!!  -  12 Mar 2016


    This is a great recipe. One thing to remember: Apples may have a waxy coating on them that keeps the caramel from sticking very well. Rolling your apples in boiling water very quickly will melt that waxy residue and the caramel sticks to the apple! How bout that?  -  20 May 2008  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    I had to make some changes to get the toppings to stay put. I referred to the caramel apple recipe submitted by Suzie. First, use chilled apples. Then melt your caramels with 2 tbsp. milk in the microwave for 2 minutes, stirring halfway through. I let my melted caramels sit for about a minute before dipping the apples. The toppings stayed perfectly in place. I hope this helps!  -  11 Nov 2006  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
