My mind is an ocean blue

Ask me anything   Submit   Wanderer at heart with a nearly useless Art History degree. I like music, everything from folk to metal depending on my mood, camping, hiking, and all things cozy. Some days I even consider myself a poet.

First day of grad school tomorrow. I cannot believe a year ago that I was spazzing out about even get in somewhere

Poison Toffee Apples for Halloween

Ingredients
2 cups granulated sugar
¾ cups water
½ cup liquid glucose/light corn syrup
few drops black gel food colouring
6 Granny Smith apples (or 12 small apples)



Instructions
Grease a piece of baking paper and place on a tray/baking sheet.
Insert bamboo skewers in all the apples and set aside.
In a medium pot, combine the sugar, water, glucose/corn syrup and food colouring and stir over medium heat until the sugar has dissolved and the mixture feels smooth when you rub it between your fingers.
When the sugar has dissolved, turn the heat up and wash the sides of the pot down with a pastry brush dipped into clean water to prevent crystals from forming.
Allow the caramel to boil until it reaches the hard crack stage (150°c/310°F).
Carefully dip the apples into the hot candy mixture and place on the baking paper to set and cool for approximately an hour before serving.


Wow might have to try these with the kids 👍

being really into history is cooler than being into math or science… someone who likes math and science is called a “math nerd” or a “science geek” but someone who likes history is called a “history buff” because of their strong, sensual arms
