Butterscotch Toffee Apple

Serves8 Prepare30 mins

You can’t get through Bonfire Night without this classic… we’ve even got a tip for the adults to make it even tastier.


  • 8 red apples
  • 250ml double cream
  • 25g butter
  • 125ml golden syrup
  • 300g caster sugar
  • 75ml bourbon or whiskey (optional!)
  • Flavourless oil
  • Sugar thermometer


  1. Prep a tray for your apples by oiling a non-stick baking tray.
  2. Add your apples to a bowl and pour over some boiling water then dry them off. This will make sure that the toffee sticks by getting rid of any film on the apples!
  3. Next remove all the stalks and stick in some lollypop sticks (or go natural with some wooden sticks like we have!).
  4. Add the rest of your ingredients to a large pan, make sure there is a lot of spare room in the pan once ingredients are added as this mix will bubble up.
  5. Heat it gently, stirring until a uniform colour has been achieved and the sugar has dissolved. Turn up the heat and bring to the boil until the temperature on the sugar thermometer reaches hard-crack stage.
  6. Once your toffee is done turn down the heat and then dip and roll your apples around until you have a thin coating! Let the excess drip away and pop your apples onto your greased baking tray to set.
