I don’t usually participate in any holiday activity whatsoever, but like anything in life, there’s always an exception. Halloween is my favourite non-jewish holiday, or should I say, the only holiday I’m gladly taking part in it’s silly shenanigans. I’ve only started “celebrating” it in 2006 when I moved to the UK, and couldn’t believe the amounts of FUN i’ve missed all these years living in a shitty country that didn’t celebrate it at all!
Halloween without a sugar coma is like Bracket without a camera; sad, depressed and suicidal –
so today we’re gonna learn how to easily make my all time favourite Halloween treat;
- 4 small apples (I used Golden Delicious)
- 1 cups golden sugar
- 3/4 cup water
- 4 simple wooden chopsticks
- Toppings of your choice
Wash and dry your apples, remove the stalks and insert a chopstick into the bottom of each apple.
Combine the water and sugar in a small pan and bring the mixture to the boil.
Heat the mixture to 150C and simmer for about 20 mins.
Test the mixture after 20 mins by dropping a spoonful into a cup of cold water,
the mixture should become hard and will crack when you tap it with the back of a spoon.
Remove from the heat and allow the mixture to stop bubbling before transferring it into a bowl.
prepare a plate with your favourite topping so you can easily dip the apples in once they’re covered,
I’ve used fudge chunks, white chocolate chunks, popping candy and chocolate coated honeycomb.
Dip the apples, one by one, into the mixture (you’ll need to tilt the bowl a little).
Rotate the apple, letting it drain a little then place on the greaseproof paper to cool down and harden.
Sprinkle your topping on and put aside to set for about 30 min.
Serve and enjoy the sugar rush!
Now, what’s halloween without slaughtering at least 3 pumpkins and turning them into a brutally horrifying machines (or just cute pumpkins with cats carved in n’ stuff) and so, we got down to business!
If you have a crazy rodent in the house – emptying the pumpkins just got whole lot easier for you!
simply throw the fat bugger inside and let it do the job for you.
(*at some point you’ll need to remove the beast from the pumpkin as it may eat it’s body weight and EXPLODE)
