Asda's Toffee Apple Recipe
Makes 6 ( I used half quantities and covered 4 small apples). Ready in 1 hour
Recipe type: Sweet
Cuisine: British
  • 6 eating apples
  • 450g demerara sugar
  • 50g Asda Unsalted Butter, plus extra for greasing (I used salted)
  • 2tsp cider vinegar
  • 1tbsp Asda Clear Honey
  1. Wash and dry the apples. Push a stick into the base of each one through the core, making sure it’s secure (use ice lolly sticks or thick wooden skewers). Grease a piece of baking paper. Fill a bowl with cold water and keep this ready to test the toffee.
  2. Put the sugar, butter, vinegar, honey and 150ml cold water into a pan and heat, stirring, until the sugar has dissolved.
  3. Boil for 10 minutes or until the mixture reaches 140 degrees, testing frequently towards the end – it’s ready when a small piece dropped in the water turns hard straight away. Don’t worry if it looks frothy, this is normal.
  4. Remove from the heat and dip the apples in the toffee to coat. Take care as the toffee will be hot. Stand on the baking paper and leave to set and cool before eating.
