Ingredients

  • 12 essential Waitrose Mini Apples, stalks removed, washed
  • 50g sesame seeds, toasted
  • 50g pecans, toasted and chopped
  • 400g caster sugar
  • 350g golden syrup

You will also need

  • 12 lolly sticks

Method

  1. Push a lolly stick into the top of each apple and line a tray with non-stick baking parchment. Tip the sesame seeds and chopped nuts into separate bowls.

  2. Place the sugar, golden syrup and 400ml cold water into a saucepan, heat to a simmer, stirring until the sugar has dissolved. Turn up the heat and boil until the mixture reaches 146°C, or hard crack stage. Remove from the heat.

  3. Carefully dip the apples into the hot toffee and swirl to coat. If the pan is too shallow use a spoon to coat. Dip the bottoms of each into the sesame seeds or nuts. Place on the lined tray and leave until set.
