Spooky candied apples make a fun and perfect treat for Halloween!
- 2 tbsps golden syrup
- 2 tbsps water
- 1⁄2 cup sugar
- 1⁄2 cup cream
- pinch salt
- 1⁄2 tsp vanilla essence
- 2-3 tsps black food colouring
- 2 tbsps butter
Line a baking sheet with baking paper. Prepare the apples: wash, dry and remove the stems. Insert sticks or straws and set aside.
In a medium heat proof bowl, add the syrup, water and sugar.
Microwave for 5-7 minutes until the mixture boils and turns a light amber colour.
Stir in the cream followed by the salt, vanilla and food colouring. Mix until well combined. Stir in the butter until smooth.
Immediately dip and coat one apple at a time. Tilt and rotate to coat completely. Hold over the bowl with the stick up, allowing excess caramel to drip off for 10-15 seconds. Flip upside down, with stick down, letting caramel set for 15-20 seconds. Transfer to prepared baking sheet and repeat with remaining apples.
Chill for at least 30-60 minutes to completely set caramel.
