    Maple Toffee Apples

    • Gluten Free
    • Preparation time: 10 minutes, plus setting
    • Cooking time: 15 minutes
    • Total time: 25 minutes, plus setting 25 minutes


    • 200g golden granulated sugar
    • 1 tsp white wine vinegar
    • 125ml Waitrose Canadian Maple Syrup, No. 1
    • 25g butter
    • 75g pecans, finely chopped
    • 6 small eating apples, such as Spartan or Worcester Pearmain


    1. Place a piece of baking parchment on a heatproof surface. Pour the sugar into a large, heavy-based pan with 100ml of cold water. Warm gently. Cook for 2-3 minutes, without stirring, until the sugar has dissolved.
    2. Add the vinegar, maple syrup and butter. Bring to the boil and bubble for 5-10 minutes until a little syrup dripped into cold water becomes firm, but 'gives' when squeezed.
    3. Meanwhile, place the pecans on a large plate and push 6 wooden lolly sticks or chopsticks into the base of each apple.
    4. Remove the caramel from the heat. Pick up the first apple by its stick and dip into the caramel to coat completely, then roll the apple in the pecans to coat evenly.
    5. Place the apple, with its stick upwards, onto the prepared parchment. Repeat with the remaining apples, warming the caramel in the pan over a gentle heat if it begins to thicken. Leave the apples to set.
