    Ahh! What a wonderful memory to have…I haven’t had a toffee apple for years…I do buy my girls them now and again in the Autumn but we’ve never tried making our own. I think we will have to.

      I will confess that I’ve not actually had a toffee apple since I lost a veneer biting into one. The ones my Nan made would have probably pulled your teeth out rather than a veneer! I’m thinking of making some chocolate apples with my kids though.

    For the longest time, I thought cinnamon candy apples where the only kind of taffy apple there was and now I miss them but I don’t miss what they can do to your teeth. I bet toffee apples are just as delicious and dangerous. I’m going to have to try at least one of these recipes, mm, fall.
    What wonderful memories you have of your gran. A wooden spoon, lots of sugar and constantly stirring are still the way to go. The space between buildings leading to a field sounds magical.

    I love the nortalgia in this post. Even the fact you used twigs to hold the apples. None of this shop bought, specially designed sticks. When I was in my last year of primary school, so 10/11 years old, we had the most epic teacher. She brought in her own bite to help us all make toffee apples in class. It was the best and so off the cuff. No permission was sought. Could you imagine that happening nowadays!

    Love this.

    I can’t believe how quickly this year has passed us by! I love the term scrumping, free food courtesy of mother nature is always the best food and toffee apple is a match made in heaven.

    I love the nostalgia coming through in this pot and such gorgeous storytelling. I think I’ll be a very popular mum if I test out some of these recipes!! Congratulations on being a featured post on #BlogCrush this week .

    Oh, I love this post. Where your nan lived sounds wonderful. Nothing like scrumping and making toffee apples. They always remind me of a neighbour we had as she’d always tell my mum to send us over and she’d give us toffee apples and coke floats etc. xxx
