SCs - who remembers toffee apples..?
...as in an apple on a stick - coated with melted demerarra sugar - and crunching through the outer coating - into the softened apple ?
Sounds sexy - but when I was a kid, wearing short trousers, toffee apples gave much innocent pleasure.

They are still called toffee apples in Scotland, and I love them.

Yes, I remember them very well.
My introduction to toffee apples came after a childhood visit to
the fair, or "feast" as we used to call it in Horsforth, Yorks.
I must have been about 8 years old.
I bought one a few years later, at the Otley Show,
and life was never the same, Nem.
I bit into this concoction of apple and confectionary
and found a big juicy maggot.
Thankfully, the maggot was intact, and I had not

I think I can make that. On the holidays I make English toffee candy....I'll thin it out and try to cover the apples. So far it's been the caramel apples covered in mini chocolate chips. YUM!

I've never seen toffee covered apples for sale. But I did get alot of red coated cancy
apples and caramel coated ones in my time. They were all good to me.

The ones I remember in the 50's (Toronto, Canada) were coated in hard, shiny red candy, but were nevertheless called "taffy apples". It was the 60's before I actually saw the kind you describe.

Caramel apples and candied apples are wonderful; however, I have not ever had a toffee apple. It sounds wonderful.

Have seen a lot of carmel apples, but I've never seen a toffe one. I like toffe better then carmel. Sounds delish.
The only sweets I remember from childhood are tootsie rolls, and ice cream and homemade blackberry cobbler!

we had candied apples at the fairs and rodeos here, the apple wasn't softened though, had a time chewing through all that to get to a crunchy apple Might be easier with smaller apples.
