Our Stick Honey Apples are the perfect Bonfire Night Treat

6 red apples

200g granulated sugar

150g honey

6 tablespoons water

Farmhouse Salted Caramel & Chocolate Chip Biscuits - optional

Cartwright & Butler Stem Ginger in Dark Chocolate - optional

1. Gently heat the sugar and water in a sauce pan until the sugar has dissolved.

2. Add in the honey and raise the temperature of the hob to a slightly higher medium heat.

3. Allow the mixture to cook until it becomes a rich golden colour. If dripped into a glass of cold water, the drops should instantly solidify. For a less sweet, slightly smoky flavour, cook until a deep golden brown.

4. Whilst the honey toffee is cooking, wash and dry the apples, remove the stalks and pierce with your sticks. If you are coating your apples in any additional extras, make sure these are chopped or crumbled into small pieces and placed on a plate or in a bowl.

5. Take the pan off of the heat and tilt so the honey toffee mixture is in a pool. Then dip each apple into the mix, making sure to coat as much of the apple as possible. Be careful not to touch any of the mixture as it is extremely hot. If the toffee begins to solidify before you have coated all of the apples, simply return to the heat until it is liquid again.

6. Optionally roll your coated apples in any biscuits or nuts straight after dipping in the toffee, then place stick side up on your sheet of baking paper.
