A whole toffee apple can be too much for small children to eat. Try these Chocolate Toffee Apple Slices instead. Easier to eat and much less waste!
I have so many memories of toffee apples as a kid; packaged up so enticingly in shiny wrappers in the supermarket. It must have been the only time of year I begged my mum for an apple! But I also remember the sheer size of them and I don’t think I ever finished a whole one.This year I decided to make my own Chocolate Toffee Apples at home but in slices, rather than the whole apple, making them the ideal size for my small children.
As you can see they went down a treat! The apple slices are coated in dark chocolate (I used 70% cocoa chocolate but milk chocolate would work just fine too), topped them with caramel sauce and then decorated with sprinkles and desiccated coconut.
I used my Coconut Sugar Caramel Sauce Recipe but any kind of caramel or toffee sauce will work, either homemade or shop bought.
- 3 medium apples
- 100g dark chocolate
- 2 tbsp toffee / caramel sauce
- sprinkles or desiccated coconut to decorate
- lollipop or popsicle sticks
- Cut the apples lengthways into 3 large slices. Cut a very small slice from the end pieces so that they lie flat. Insert a lollipop or popsicle stick into each apple slice.
- Melt the chocolate over a pan of boiling water or in the microwave and pour it into a small deep bowl.
- Dip each apple slice into the chocolate and fully coat it in a thin layer of chocolate. Place the apple slice on a plate or tray and repeat until all the slices are coated. Put the plate in the fridge for 20 minutes or until the chocolate has hardened.
- Spread a small layer of toffee caramel sauce onto the top of each apple slice and decorate with sprinkles or coconut.
- Serve immediately or store in the fridge. These apple slices are best eaten the same day that they are made.
