I love Autumn. The weather, the kick-off of baking season, and of course Rosh Hashanah and Halloween! Toffee Apples are a perfect treat to enjoy throughout the entire season! They are easy to make, taste very yummy, and semi-healthy as you are getting your ‘apple a day’ with each one…Toffee Apples are so easy to make and kids especially will really enjoy making these treats. There are 4 ways to make Toffee Apples. If you’d like to make them from scratch, I’ve included a recipe card below. For those of you making toffee apples for parties and bake sales, I have 2 quick and easy solution to create the best Toffee Apples en masse! I hope you try them, and let me know how it goes!
I like to use ‘Wrapples’, which are thin sheets of toffee that you simply wrap around your apple and pull down and around to coat.
Place your wrapple sheet on top of your apples and pull down. Pierce your stick through the top of the apple and place on a baking sheet. These go into the oven for 5 minutes to allow the toffee to melt around the whole apple. They look and taste fantastic!
Place 1 tub of Toffee sauce in the microwave for 1 minute so it achieves a fluid texture. Pierce the top of your apple and dunk it into the tub of sauce. Place on a baking sheet and cook for 5 minutes.
Place an unopened can of condensed milk in a pan of boiling water and boil for about 30 minutes. Open the can and voila! Your toffee is ready and your apples can be coated.
The traditional Toffee Apple recipe for smaller batches, below:

- Bring to the boil and boil for 10 minutes without stirring.
- Place the apple in a preheated oven to soften slightly but not cook.
- Take the apple out and pierce with a skewer and dip into the toffee mixture. Be sure to coat the whole apple.
