Candy Apples

 Rounding off the Halloween recipes for this year with a timeless tasty classic.

Ingredients:

(makes one double chocolate apple, one caramel and nut apple and one dark chocolate and coconut)

200g dairy free dark chocolate
50g of vegan white chocolate
Half cup of sugar
4 table spoons of syrup
3 apples and candy sticks
Chopped Mixed nuts of your choice

Coconut flakes

Double Chocolate & Dark Chocolate Coconut:

-Break the dark chocolate into small pieces and place in a bowl over a saucepan of boiling water stirring until melted. Do the same in a separate bowl for the white chocolate.

-Push the candy sticks into the apples and empty the coconut flakes into a bowl ready for dipping.

– Dip one apple into the dark chocolate ensuring it is full coated before dipping half way into the coconut  flakes.

-Dip the second apple into the dark chocolate  ensuring it is once again fully coated. Pick up some if the white chocolate using a spoon and splash the white chocolate over the dark whilst spinning the apple.

-Cover a plate with greaseproof paper and turn the apples upside down so the candy stick is facing upwards. Allow to set in the fridge.

Caramel and Nut:

-Skewer an apple onto the candy stick.

-Roughly chop your mixed nuts and place in a bowl.

-Pour the sugar and syrup into a saucepan and cook on a medium heat stirring continuously to ensure it doesn’t burn.

– Once the sugar has melted and turned a deep brown colour quickly dip the apple into the caramel ensuring its fully coated.

– Dip the apple straight into the bowl of chopped nuts.

– Place on the lined plate with the other two apples and leave in the fridge to set before enjoying.
