  1. Push the lollipop sticks or skewers firmly into the apples and put in the fridge. n Take a piece of lightly buttered baking parchment and lay on a flat tray. Fill the sink with about 5cm cold water.

  2. Put all the toffee ingredients except the food colouring in a pan with 100ml water. heat gently until the sugar has dissolved then bring to the boil and using a sugar thermometer, take the sugar to the 'hard crack' stage (approx 300F).

  3. Take from the heat. sit the pan in the sink to stop the toffee cooking any further. swirl in the food colouring until the toffee is red.

  4. Take the spiked apples and roll in the hot toffee so they are well coated, then sit then on the buttered paper and leave to set.

  5. TIP Some apples are sold slightly waxed so wash well in warm water and dry before you dip or the toffee won't stick.
