Autumn is definitely here! The weather has become slightly cooler and the nights are drawing in. The leaves are changing to such beautiful, bright red, orange and yellow shades and although my back lawn was cut only a few days ago, it already has more than a scattering of fallen leaves!!
One of my favourite memories from when I was much younger, is of eating black licorice and toffee apples. In fact, only today, I decided to make some toffee apples for Yasmin, Neil and myself, but using a different recipe than the standard. Instead of the red, crispy, caramelised sugar coating, I decided to use ingredients that are much sweeter and in my opinion, much yummier! I think this white chocolate apples with marshmallow and nuts recipe is so delicious. They really are tasty and I heartily recommend that you give them a try. The marshmallow and white chocolate add a different kind of sweetness to the apples (actually very complimentary), whereas the nuts stop the apples from being too sickly-sweet.
White chocolate apples with marshmallow and nuts recipe
- six pink lady apples
- lolly sticks
- 200 grams of marshmallows (cut into small chunks)
- three bars of white chocolate
- mixed chopped nuts
- Oil spray
Step_1 Rinse your apples and remove the stalks. Then insert a stick into each apple and leave in the fridge for approximately twenty minutes.
Step_2 Spray a non-stick frying pan with some oil, and add four dessert spoons of water. Then add the marshmallows. At this stage, keep stirring to make sure that the marshmallow pieces don’t stick to the pan. The mixture will be ready when the marshmallows have a smooth constituency. Now take the apples out from the fridge.
Step_3 When the marshmallows are fully melted, take off the heat and dip each apple in. Then place them on a piece of grease proof paper, which has also had a lightly sprayed layer of oil. Again, place the dipped apples back in the fridge for about twenty minutes.
Step_4 Pour in a little water into a pan, and put on the heat. Then break the white chocolate into small chunks and place in the glass bowl, placed over the pan (making sure that there is enough water but isn’t touching the bowl). Take the chilled apples from the fridge. Let the chocolate melt slowly and stir with a wooden spoon. When you have melted chocolate, dip the marshmallow coated apples in to it, then again into the chopped nuts, so that they get coated with those. Place each apple on a piece of oiled, grease-proof paper and again, chill in the fridge.
Violá, your white chocolate apples with marshmallow and nuts are done. Enjoy!
