  • Place the syrup, water, sugar and cream of tartar in a saucepan and bring to the boil over a medium heat.
  • While the mixture is heating, remove the stems from the washed apples and insert the cake pop sticks.
  • Using a candy thermometer, boil the mixture until it reaches 150°C – the bubbles will become smaller and closer together. Once it has reached the correct temperature, take the saucepan off the heat and stir in a few drops of the red food colouring.
  • Dip the apples in the syrup mixture one by one to coat them all over, then place them on a piece of baking parchment to set.
  • Once all the apples have been dipped, add a few drops of the black food colouring to darken the remaining syrup mixture (you may need to reheat it, as it will set very quickly). Using a spoon, drop some of the darker mixture over the tops of the apples and allow it to drip down the sides.
  • Leave to set and harden before serving.
  • Makes 8

    What you need:

    • 100ml corn syrup (or golden syrup)
    • 200ml water
    • 250g sugar
    • ¼ tsp cream of tartar
    • 8 apples, washed
    • 8 cake pop sticks
    • Red and black food colouring
