Halloween Toffee Apples

Ingredients

  • Red apples
  • 400g Caster Sugar
  • 4 tablespoons of golden syrup
  • Red or black food colouring
  • Red or black food glitter
  1. For this recipe, the apples need a skewered with a lolly pop stick through the stalk to make decorating and eating the apples easier.
  2. Pour the sugar in a pan and mix with 100ml of water. Wait for the sugar to dissolve and for the liquid to simmer on a low heat. It is important not to stir the mixture but instead swirl the pan carefully to mix in the sugar.
  3. Add in the golden syrup and let the mixture heat to about 150c or test the toffee by dipping a small amount into cold water. If the toffee hardens, it is ready.
  4. Add food colouring to the toffee and once off the heat, add food glitter.
  5. Then, dip each apple into the toffee, making sure to cover the entire apple and let the excess drip off onto baking paper. Remember to keep the toffee warm at this stage.

 

Chocolatey Spider Cookies

Ingredients

  • 200g of milk chocolate
  • Liquorice strips or laces
  • 2 packs of Oreo cookies
  • Black and white icing
  1. Start by melting the chocolate in a bowl, over a pan with hot water. Keep the chocolate warm in the bowl while baking.
  2. Cut the liquorice laces to 2-3cm in length. This is used as the spiders' legs.
  3. Take an Oreo cookie and put some melted chocolate in the centre. Place the liquorice laces on top and layer with another Oreo cookie to seal the liquorice in place.
  4. Cover the bake with more melted chocolate and leave to cool down.
  5. Use the coloured icing to apply spider eyes or decorate in a Halloween theme.
