No Halloween or Bonfire Night party is complete without some traditional toffee apples. To create these classic sticky and sweet treats, just follow our simple toffee apple recipe. We’ve even included an easy-peasy-to-follow video how to, to help you get them spot on every time.

Ready in just 20 mins, plus cooling time, these delicious toffee apples will complete any autumnal party (because they’re too good to save just for Halloween). This recipe makes 6.

If you want to give these apples a red glow, add a few drops of red food colouring to the sugar mixture once you’ve removed from the heat. Or dip in flaked almonds for extra crunch.

How we make toffee apples

You can make them as whole toffee apples, but we prefer to cut our apples into slices.

I've found having an entire apple is difficult for the kids to bite around, especially with the hard toffee around the outside too.

In the past, I would find half a toffee apple left behind, so this makes sure the whole thing is eaten - and there's less waste.

Having smaller slices makes it far easier for little mouths to eat them.

How long do toffee apples last and how do you store them?

Although homemade toffee apples are best eaten as soon as possible they can be stored in an airtight container for up to three days. Wrap each apple in cellophane or parchment or paper and store them in a cool, dry place. Not the fridge as the toffee absorbs the moisture from the air and the crunchy coating turns soft and sticky. Wrap them in cellophane, tie with a bow and hand them out as Halloween or Bonfire Night treats.

Toffee apples

Oven temperatures are for conventional if using fan-forced (convection), reduce the temperature by 20˚C. | We use Australian tablespoons and cups: 1 teaspoon equals 5 ml 1 tablespoon equals 20 ml 1 cup equals 250 ml. | All herbs are fresh (unless specified) and cups are lightly packed. | All vegetables are medium size and peeled, unless specified. | All eggs are 55-60 g, unless specified.


Remove the stalks from the apples and impale them on wooden sticks.

In a pot of 80 ml water, quickly bring the sugar, food colouring and the vinegar to the boil until the sugar thermometer shows 150°C.

Then immediately remove the pot from the heat and dunk the apples into the mixture. Turn them around in the syrup until they are completely covered and then place them on a plate to cool and set.

For Toffee Apple Muffins You Will Need:

The whole idea around this recipe for apple muffins was to get the taste of toffee apples without the sugar rush (and perhaps losing a couple of fillings from my teeth along the way).

  • fresh apples
  • milk
  • butter
  • flour
  • (affiliate) *maple syrup
  • graham cracker crumbs
  • eggs
  • baking powder
  • salt
  • cinnamon
  • (affiliate) *Skor Bits(the awesome toffee topping)

Toffee bits are so good. I can eat them by the handful (and do). What a great way to get that toffee taste in recipes, and the perfect topping on muffins. Makes them taste like a toffee apple cake.

If you prefer, you can always choose other muffin toppings. These fresh apple muffins would also be delicious with a crumble topping or streusel topping.

You can never go wrong with cinnamon and brown sugar as a topping. If works perfectly on Cinnamon Coffee Cake.

Have you ever tried Smoked Grilled Apples ? Such an easy dessert, and SOOOO delicious. Makes a GREAT Thanksgiving dessert. Your guests will be totally impressed.

First, you want to wash and thoroughly dry the apples. Like they need to be 1000% dry before coating them!

Then you will want to insert the candy apple stick into the top side of the apple.

Get your baking sheet ready by placing wax paper that is sprayed with cooking spray on it.

In a small saucepan, mix the sugar, corn syrup and water. Attach the candy thermometer to the side of the pan. Make sure the bottom is in the mixture.

You will then cook this mixture over medium heat until the candy thermometer says 300 degrees. This is referred to as the hard crack stage.

This will take some time to reach this, do not rush it by turning up the temperature of the burner. Making the candy coating is a slow process, be patient and stay nearby! Things move VERY quickly towards the end.

If you don’t have a candy thermometer, you can make a pretty close guess to when the candy is done cooking when a spoon forms a thin thread when being lifted from the mixture. If it pours off easily, it’s not done, but seriously so much easier with a thermometer and worth the investment.

After the candy mixture has reached 300 degrees then remove the pan from the heat and stir in the red food coloring until the desired color is reached. I love this red food coloring because it really makes it red rather than a shade of pink.

To get the red of these apples it took about ½ tsp of food coloring with this brand.

Once the toffee apple mixture is to the desired color it is time to start dipping apples!

Dip each apple into the melted sugars, allowing access to drip off back into the mixture.

Dip each apple 2-3 times before setting them on the sprayed wax paper to set. If at any point your mixture begins to harden too much, put back over medium heat and heat back to 300 degrees and then pull back off.

Toffee always seemed like such a treat perhaps because we never really had them at home unless someone from the neighbourhood came around selling them … or you’d been to a school fete.

The only other place I remember seeing Toffee in coloured patty papers was at birthday parties the good old fashioned birthday parties at home.

Toffee Old School Fete Style is a perfect recipe to have up your sleeve if you’re asked to bake for a bake sale! Even better, you’ll be a star and the oven won’t even have been turned on. Guaranteed to sell and quickly at the kids cake stalls, these are always a winner.

If you’re having a birthday, Toffee Old School Fete Style is a simple way to add a table treat in the colour of your party theme as well. We mixed red, green, and blue for Sesame Street!

Making toffee does require a very careful hand and following the recipe closely. Be extra careful as molten toffee can burn so badly. We would definitely recommend that children not be close by when you are making toffee – just in case they are tempted to poke a little finger in to test!

Choose good quality colouring for your toffee – the colours are then bright and clear.

How to make toffee apples

You’ll need the following ingredients for your toffee apples:

  • Eight red apples
  • 400g caster sugar
  • One teaspoon of lemon juice
  • Four tablespoons of golden syrup
  • Red or back food colouring (optional)
  • Red or black edible glitter (optional)

You’ll also need eight lolly sticks or forks to stick into the end of the apples.

Begin by securing the apples to your sticks by wedging them into the stalk end of the apple, making sure it’s in there firmly.

Place a large piece of baking parchments onto a wooden board.

In a large saucepan, add your sugar, lemon juice and 100ml of water and bring to a simmer - cook until the sugar has dissolved.

You can swirl the pan gently to move the sugar around, but don’t stir it with a spoon.

Add the golden syrup and bubble the mixture, ensuring that it doesn’t boil over. You want to do this until it reaches something called the “hard crack” stage, which would be 150C on a sugar thermometer.

However, there are ways to check if your toffee is at the right stage without a special sugar thermometer - simply get a small bowl of water and drop some of your toffee into it.

If the toffee hardens instantly and, when removed from the water, becomes brittle, then it’s ready.

If the toffee is soft, then you should continue to boil it.

Once your toffee is ready, add some food colouring of your choice if you want, and same with the glitter, and turn off the heat.

You’ll need to move quickly at this stage, but ensure that you’re being careful.

Using the sticks, dip each apple into your toffee mixture, manoeuvring the pan to cover all of the surface area of the apple.

Once covered, remove the apple from the toffee and allow any of the excess mixture to drop off before placing it on your parchment paper.

Repeat with your remaining apples and gently reheat your toffee mixture again if you need to.

Once you’ve done all your apples, leave them to cool before eating, preferably in a cool, dry place.

How to make classic toffee apples with just three ingredients

Toffee apples are a classic Halloween and Bonfire Night treat and they are much easier to make than you might think.

You might panic at the idea of boiling hot toffee but the mixture needs just two ingredients.

Add in the apple itself and you can whip this up with just three things.

For the toffee, you’ll need golden syrup and caster sugar.

If you want to add to the traditional recipe, you can also pick up some nuts or sprinkles to roll the apples in but its optional.

And of course, if you aren’t a toffee fan, you can always try dipping the apples in melted chocolate instead, or create a mix of both.

You’ll need something to attach to the apples to make it easier to dip, and to hold as you eat it.

If you have some lollipop sticks, they work well, or try BBQ skewers or if you’re just making them to eat at home, sticking a fork into the top is a good alternative.

    Here I look at all the enthusiastic comments, and I can not understand - or is it me behind the times, or is everyone crazy? No, what is written perfectly, the original style is visible - I will not argue with that, it is. But as for the content itself - why describe it? Although many are interested: Probably, I do not understand something.
