Online Shop closed until further notice

Due to the Covid-19 (Coronavirus) outbreak in the UK we have taken the decision to temporally close our online shop effective immediately, 30th March 2020. Until now our shop has remained available, but the orders we have been receiving have been significantly lower than normal.

While we are just a small, home business between myself and my fiancé, we have decided to take this decision now in the hope that we can help to remove some of the unnecessary work put into the postal service here in the UK and around the world.

We hope to resume normal service as soon as possible when the situation begins to return to normal. We hope all our customers, both old and new remain safe in this worrying time.

Toffee apples are so easy to make, naturally gluten free and are a necessity on bonfire nights. Tradition calls for them to be red but you could leave it natural colour to give it a more autumnal colour or you could add a few drops of black food colouring and they would be a great halloween treat as well as by the bonfire!

1. Push lolly sticks (or you could use forks if you don't have lolly sticks) into the top of each apple and set aside.

2. Put the sugar in a pan leave until the edge go golden and shake, the pan, shake again when more has gone golden, once about 1/4 is melted stir with a wooden spoon and continue to melt until all the sugar crystals have dissolved and the sugar is the colour of honey, any darker and the sugar has burnt and will need to be done again.

3. Remove from the eat and add the water, beware it will hiss and spit, return back to the heat immediately and stir to remove any lumps that have formed.

4. Stir in the golden syrup and colouring. Drop a small amount of the sugar mix in cold water, if the toffee is ready it will instantly form a hard ball in the water, if it is still soft continue to heat and try again after a few minutes. Once solid balls form in the water the toffee is done.

5. Dip the apples into the toffee and roll around until covered, then place on a piece of cling film to set, repeat for all 4 apples, if the toffee starts to get really sticky reheat it. Allow around 30 minutes for the toffee to cool completely before eating.
