My little man had the idea that he wanted to experience a toffee apple – And why shouldn’t he? What a delicious something on a special occasion – namely the occasion where a little mate is coming over for a Star Wars movie date.
And so, I thought a little selfishly: How can I make this as easy as possible without having to think about it too much?
The answer was, look to the ratio of a past recipe for a caramel that crunches up completely upon cooling – the one for my I Can’t Believe it’s not Milo, of course!
Then it was simply a matter of selecting some small red apples and twirling them through the caramel before taking it off the heat. True story.
Here’s the recipe in full detail and I cannot wait to see your pics and any variations (a little beetroot powder perhaps for pink colour? Don’t add it right until the end)
These would be great to batch for a birthday party – I’ll definitely be putting them on my little man’s party list for next year!
Fun party and occasion food doesn’t need to be a collection of freak laboratory created foods. No. Redefine your treats as I first called for back in 2012 and let’s nail a couple of these fun recipes to have on our ‘whole food people are every bit as cool’ list!
Pro tip: If you have caramel left in your pan, toss few nuts through it to collect the remaining caramel and toss the nuts out onto some parchment = crunchy caramel nuts. Happiness.
Enjoy and please show me your efforts over on instagram @lowtoxlife when you make it – you guys always make things way prettier than my quick, rustic efforts!
