Watch how easy they are to make:

Home-made toffee apples:

  • 6 green snack apples
  • 1 gelatin leaf
  • 50ml fresh cream
  • 50ml milk
  • 30g glucose
  • 100g white chocolate pieces
  • 5g red food colouring
  • 6 skewers


1. Pierce a skewer through the middle of each apple and place the apples in the fridge to get very  cold
2. Bloom the gelatin in a small bowl of ice cold water for 10 to 15 minutes. The gelatin will soften  but the cold water will stop it from dissolving.
3. In a small saucepan, bring the milk, cream and glucose to simmer.
4. Remove the saucepan and immediately add the white chocolate pieces. Use a hand blender and  mix together for two minutes until the chocolate has melted.
5. Fish the softened gelatin from the bowl with your hand, allowing excess water to drain before  adding the gelatin to the chocolate and cream mixture.

Use a hand blender to mix together for two  minutes or until the gelatin has melted.
