Runway-Ready Red Candy Apples

  • 2½ cups granulated sugar
  • 100g powdered glucose (obtainable from a chemist)
  • 5ml vinegar
  • ½ cup water
  • 60g butter
  • 1 tablespoon red gel food colouring 
  • 10 small firm red apples
  • Wooden skewers

Push skewers into the stalk end of each unwashed, unpeeled apple and set aside. In a pot, stir sugar, glucose, vinegar and water over a medium heat until the sugar has completely dissolved. Now rapidly boil, without stirring until the mixture reaches 155C-160C on a sugar thermometer (hard crack stage). Remove from the heat and quickly beat in the red food colouring and butter thoroughly. Ensure you add enough colour to create a bright red! Keep the pot of syrup over a larger pot of boiling water to keep the toffee workable whilst you dip the apples and twist them until they are completely coated. Leave the coated apples to cool on a greased tray. Because toffee apples become sticky, wrap them and keep in a cool dry place once they’re cold.
