Servings 6 apples


  • 6 small Organic Apples
  • 6 Wooden Sticks
  • 1/2 cup Organic Honey
  • 2/3 cup Coconut Sugar
  • 60 grams Pastured Butter
  • 1 tsp Salt , Himalayan or sea
  • 1 tsp Vanilla


  • Line a baking tray with greaseproof or parchment paper and stick a wooden ice block stick or thick wooden skewer into each apple.
  • Chill the apples in the fridge while you are making the salted caramel, as having cold apples will help the caramel stick to the apples.
  • Put the honey, coconut sugar, butter, salt and vanilla into a small saucepan and place over a medium heat.
  • Stirring constantly, bring the caramel to a simmer and cook for 2 minutes.
  • Remove the pot from the heat and carefully roll the apples in the caramel, coating each in a thick layer.
  • Place the apples on the tray and then put into the fridge to cool for at least 30 minutes. Store the toffee apples in the fridge.

Optional Ideas:

  • Decorate the apples by rolling them in chopped nuts, dried coconut or cacao nibs.
  • To make these toffee apples dairy-free replace the butter with coconut butter.
