Popping Candy Apple Pops !

I absolutely LOVE bonfire night ! The fireworks, the pretty lights, that wonderful feeling of being with all your family and friends stood around a bonfire and ... Toffee Apples ! I've always loved eating toffee/chocolate apples but they're impossible to eat while looking in anyway dignified hehe . So when I saw the idea of making apple pops and making them into mini caramel apples on Pinterest I was beyond excited ! But I always hate the idea of working with hot caramel because it can be dangerous, it's easy to get burnt and I'm ( not to brag or anything ;) ) generally quite talented at being a safety hazard in the kitchen even without boiling hot sugar flying around everywhere hehe ! So I was thinking about how I could make these better and make them in a way that would be safe and fun to make with children ... Then it hit me ! I should mix all the yummy things in the world together , add it to the dignity retaining idea of bite size apple pieces and Bamm ! Chocolate, Popping Candy, Toffee Apples ! And that .... was something I HAD to share with you hehe :)

What You'll Need :
  • Apples
  • Toffee Sauce
  • Popping Candy
  • Chocolate
  • Cake pop sticks
  • Melon Baller
Step One : Use a melon baller to get a small ball of apple !

Step Two : dip the apple ball in toffee sauce

Step Three : Roll the apple in popping candy ( The toffee sauce will make it stick )

Step Four : Melt some chocolate in a bowl and dip a cake pop stick in it to make sure the apple stays on then put the apple on the cake pop stick .

Step Five : Cover the apple pop in the chocolate and then sprinkle with a little popping candy for decoration !

Leave to dry and voila ! The perfect fireside treat with your dignity fully in tack hehe :) I'd show you a picture of the ones I made but I sort of, ever so slightly.. ate them ... Umm sorry ;)

Have a great bonfire night and let me know in the comments what your favourite part of bonfire night is !

Stay Strong <3 Stay Smiley :)

Lots of Love, Marianne xxx

  8. Yum!! I love how you made them into pops. While I love the idea of candy apples, on a practical level, they're just so difficult to eat! Although that won't stop me from trying... :P -Audrey | Brunch at Audrey's
