How to make

You will also need:

* Variety of apples and pears x12 – washed and dried

* 400ml cold water

* 400g caster sugar

* 350g golden syrup

* Chopped nuts

* Chopped pretzels

Step 1

Push a lolly stick into the top of each fruit and lightly brush a baking tray with a little sunflower or vegetable oil.

Step 2

Have your selection of toppings ready to go in separate bowls – I used a selection of sprinkles, mini marshmallows, chopped nuts and pretzels and freeze-dried raspberry pieces.

Step 3

Place the sugar, golden syrup and water into a saucepan and heat to a simmer, stirring until the sugar has dissolved. Turn up the heat and boil until the mixture reaches 146°C, or hard crack stage. Remove from the heat.

Step 4

Swiftly but carefully dip the fruit into the hot toffee and swirl to coat or use a spoon if needed.

Sprinkle each toffee apple/pear with your topping of choice before the toffee sets hard.

Place on the oiled tray and leave until set.

Step 5

Once the toffee on the apples and pears has set, they are then ready to be eaten!
