Mini Toffee Apples
This is our own take on the classic, but in miniature form. We produced 24 miniatures with this recipe, perfect for canapés or an anytime autumnal treat!
Ingredients & Tools:
4 apples - Granny Smith are best, as the extra crunch is perfect for these treats!
300g toffee - We used 6 x 50g bars of Walker's Treacle Toffee
Bowl of water
Melon baller scooper
Cocktail sticks or skewers (chopped in half)
First, start by peeling your apples. We find its best to keep them in a bowl of water, to keep them fresh, whilst you work on peeling the rest.
Next, take your melon baller and scoop out whole circles of apple. Again, we submerged these in water to make sure they stayed fresh whilst we did the remainder!
We managed to get 6 balls from each of the 4 apples, but depending on what size fruit you have, you may end up using more or less than this, or you can just make however many you want!
Put all your toffee bars in a bowl and in to the microwave for one minute on medium heat, stirring every 20 seconds.
Pat each of the apple balls with kitchen roll to get rid of excess water and then using a cocktail stick, or skewer stick, pierce each apple ball and dip into the toffee sauce. You may have to heat it up again if it begins to harden, just repeat the microwaving process above.
Continue with the rest of the apple balls and leave to set on a plate, we'd recommend popping them in the fridge for 10 minutes just to quicken up the process.
