Toffee apples take me right back to childhood. I remember walking past the sweet stands selling them at carnivals and country fairs, and I always pestered my mom to buy them. I totally favored these over cotton candy every time!
And autumn is the perfect time to make these delicious, crunchy toffee apples at home. Forget bobbing for apples, toffee apples is where it's at! ;)
Oh, and did I mention it's super easy too? I love them even more now!
Toffee apples are not like caramel apples - they're crunchy hard, kinda like the outer shell of a creme brulée, I guess?
If you prefer a red toffee apple (or any other color for that matter) you simply add some food coloring to the toffee, it works a treat!
These toffee apples are a perfect Halloween treat to display on your desserts tables, or a great Thanksgiving or autumn party dessert too. And let's not forget they make great party favors and homemade gifts! Teacher's would LOVE getting these, don't you think?! :)
