  • 4 Kissabel Apples
  • 200gms castor sugar
  • ½ Teaspoon of Vinegar
  • 2 Tablespoons of Golden Syrup
  • 1 Teaspoon of Red Dye Gel
  • 1 Teaspoon of Black Dye Gel
  • 50MLs Water


  • 4 wooden Sticks or Washed Twigs solid enough to firmly hold the apples with. 



Wash and thoroughly dry the apples. Insert sticks of your choice into the tops of the apple cores. Make sure they are firmly holding the apple.


Add the sugar and water to a heavy based saucepan and heat on low heat until the sugar is fully dissolved.


Add the vinegar and golden syrup and cook on a low to medium heat until reaching a ‘hard crack’ temperature of 150degrees celsius.

Note: You can also test the toffee by dropping a small amount in cold water. It will harden instantly and crack when ready. If still soft, continue heating.


Turn off the heat when ready, and stir through the red and black dyes


Work quickly to dip the apples into the hot toffee and place on a silicon baking sheet till set. Be sure the apples are fully cooled and set before eating.
